Apparently the next generation iPhone will have a new color option – gold!
Did they make this gold phone just for me? For the golden girls who like to geek their way through this phase in their life instead of cooking and baking and basically doing normal stuff?
I’d like to think so! It puts a smile on face when I do!
Here is the scoop from AllThingsD:
“Sources in a position to know tell AllThingsD that Apple, after years of offering the iPhone in either black and white, will soon offer it in a gold tone, as well. Apple-news site iMore was first to break the news last Friday, its story corroborated in short order by TechCrunch on Sunday, along with 9to5Mac.
The new color option was described to AllThingsD as an “elegant” gold tone. “Think champagne, not ingot,” a source said, confirming what not seems to be some spot-on speculation from iMore last week. Sources say that the gold iPhone will feature a white face, with a gold-tone back plate and chamfered edging.
Why the new color option now?
As others have noted, gold tones are among the easiest colors to anodize, so technologically it’s an easy option to offer. It adds a bit of flash to an otherwise staid color palette that hasn’t changed in a number of years. It’s an obvious differentiator between the current iPhone 5 and whatever its successor ends up being called.”
I don’t know about you but there is no way Jose that I am not purchasing this iPhone. To not do so would just be wrong.
A gold phone for the golden years. Can’t you visualize Apple marketing the juice out of this color choice playing the theme music from Goldfinger? Ha!
Oh yes, this slow Monday has just gotten a little more exciting.
Will you buy a gold phone? And if not, what’s wrong with you? Ha!
Also, could someone please tell me what the S stands for in iPhone 5S? Could it be $ – as suggested by my son-in-law?
