According to the Japanese publication Macotakara, a gold smartphone may indeed be in the cards for Apple, which is expected to launch a revamped iPhone handset later this year alongside its next-generation iPad models. While little is known about what new features the seventh-generation iPhone might bring, Macotakara asserts that a reliable “source” has informed the publication that the forthcoming handset will, indeed, be available in gold.
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard rumors concerning a gold iPhone. Months following a similar report from Moumantai, the images of a gold-colored iPhone SIM card tray and volume buttons surfaced online.
Of course, we can’t confirm anything until Apple announces the next-generation iPhone on stage, presumably at some point in the fall.
