Apple might be going back to black with the iPhone 7, making it the darkest iPhone since the days of the iPhone 3Gs.

We got a major crush on the deep blue iPhone 7 earlier this month, but now that mockup artist Martin Hajek has whipped up this Space Black creation, we’re torn between what Apple’s new iPhone color should be.

Prepare to drool:

Murdered out


Recent rumors claimed Apple will unleash a dark blue iPhone 7; however, a new report claims it will actually be more of a “formal black” that will be much darker than Apple’s space gray iPhone.


The dark black frame would bring a fresh new look to the iPhone lineup. Apple’s certain to come out with a new color this year, giving fans a way to signify that they upgraded to the most boring iPhone update in years.

Along with going darker than ever, the iPhone 7 might also be the first iPhone to not have a headphone jack. The rumor mill has been split on whether Apple will come out with Lightning EarPods, or if the company will simply include a 3.5mm to Lightning adapter so old headphones can work on the device.

If Apple does come out with Lightning EarPods, I hope we get some black ones to match the new alleged iPhone color.
