A new rumor claims that Apple won’t be launching the iPhone 7 in a new “deep blue” color, as previously suggested, but rather a far darker gray which will replace the existing space gray color the company offers.

The color is reportedly a shade of “formal black,” which will be substantially different to the rose gold, gold and silver iPhone options currently available.

Apple’s upcoming iPhone 7 series will be available in a new “deep blue” color option, according to “reliable” supply chain sources. Space gray is expected to get the chop for this year’s model, but the other traditional color options in the iPhone lineup will stick around.

It’s not too late to pre-order your iPhone 6s for launch day

If you haven’t already pre-ordered your new iPhone 6s, you’ve still got a great chance of getting one on launch day — unless you want a Rose Gold model.

The new color option has become the first to sell out completely in many markets, but the Silver, Gold, and Space Gray are still widely available for delivery and personal pickup on Friday, September 25.

Apple never seems to be able to make enough iPhones to meet launch day demand, but it seems the Cupertino company has found that task particularly difficult this year. The iPhone 5s has proven incredibly difficult to get hold of all over the globe, while that fancy new gold model is near impossible to get hold of.

At Apple’s flagship store in San Francisco, there were just 20 gold iPhone 5s units waiting to go on sale this morning, and they were all claimed before the store even opened its doors.
