AllThingsD Confirms Apple Really Is Releasing A Gold iPhone

Rumors of Apple releasing a gold-colored iPhone have been hard for some to swallow, but according to AllThingsD’s sources, Apple plans to introduce a gold iPhone at the September 10th keynote.

While many Apple fans are worried that a gold iPhone would look too gaudy and doesn’t match the Apple design aesthetic, John Paczkowski’s sources says the gold iPhone will have a white face with a gold black plate and chamfered edging.

Rather than using a bold ingot gold tone many have feared, the gold iPhone will be more of a champagne color. No word on whether the gold iPhone will be priced differently than other models (we doubt it), but we’ll just have to wait and see the final product on September 10th.

    Yes – so it can match a gold iWatch. Think about it

    Not a very nice looking colour i think it makes what normally looks like a great top class design into something very tacky looking.

    This is what happens when a company stops innovating.
    Most people don’t care about colors, that’s what the accessories market is for.

    That champagne colour is pretty sexy. Now it’s the world’s hardest decision on what colour to get next gen.

    You’re talking about a company who’s popularity really started to take off when they introduced the iMac in colors such as Strawberry, Blueberry, Lime, Grape, and Tangerine.

    Really, some people do actually care about colors.

    Don’t understand all the negative comments about a gold color iPhone. I think gold color is great. I’ve been watching Anostyle to get a deal on a custom gold colored iPhone for myself, just didn’t want to pay full boat. Incidentally, gold is one of the most sought after colors at Anostyle which proves that many people like it. My iPhone is all black at the moment. My wish is to give it a gold backing, gold on the sides, and gold buttons. The front face and button will remain black, as well, the narrow rectangular areas at the camera and at the bottom.
