Apple is "testing" pink iPhones, could launch them this year
According to a Wall Street Journal report, Apple is currently "testing" a new color option for its next generation iPhones (possibly called iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus). While the new iPhones will most probably have the same three color versions that the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have (gray, silver, and gold), the fourth color option, according to the WSJ, could be pink.

The Wall Street Journal also notes that Apple will not change the size of the screens on its next-gen smartphones, so they should come with 4.7-inch, and 5.5-inch displays, respectively. Moreover, the publication has it that - just as previously rumored - the upcoming iPhones will make use of Force Touch, a new technology that Apple is already using in its Watch and the latest MacBook. Thanks to Force Touch, the screen of the iPhone 6s will be able to differentiate light taps from hard presses, thus possibly offering new features that the current iPhones aren't capable of.

The Wall Street Journal further reports that mass production for some iPhone 6s components should start in May. Thus, we assume that, like in the previous years, Apple will announce its new iPhones in September.

P.S.: What you're seeing above is just a quick mockup we made based on the gold iPhone 6.

LOL, come on - sarcasm! But I can certainly foresee a sudden flood of pink phones if this is true, ladies and some gents should be happy! Really hated Apple when they caused a flood of super ugly gold phones (ironically, gold iphone was the least ugly gold phone, IMO!)

Advice from Porks: let people know whenever you're using sarcasm - use "/s" or "-s"

Read comment #18:

"Samsung always had their black and white options (they never called them black and white, they always make a different, rather embarassing name, with every new device.). But what happened after the iPhone 5S ? They added gold to all their High end phones, including the note. "

That's what I actually meant by people copying Apple. There have been pink phones, it's true. But as soon as Apple releases a pink iPhone every OEM will want a pink colored variant of their flagship.

Samsung Als had a gold mobile phone before. There's absolutely nothing apple did first, they are just the biggest copycats in the world. Which their former ceo also admitted.

Finally! We need more phone color options. It's just a phone, don't take it so seriously it doesn't have to be black or white.

Apple fans be like "ERMAGERD, Samsung copied Apple 2 years ago with the pink Galaxy Note 3!" or "Apple revolutionized another color...just like they did with Gold!"

You know it's very different throwing colors around and say the one that tries everything is an innovator.
All those colors are exclusives to some models, regions or cariers and are dropped off or changed with next generation of device. Samsung always had their black and white options (they never called them black and white, they always make a different, rather embarassing name, with every new device.). But what happened after the iPhone 5S ? They added gold to all their High end phones, including the note. Now with galaxy S6 you got black white and gold as base options and then a randomly choosed color that looks nice.

And I could bet that if Apple introduces a pink iPhone, samsung will sudenly have 4 basic colors on their flagships. You know, copying is not about who did it first, but when they had done it.
You see - Apple didn't have urge to make an ellectric blue iPhone 6 imediatelly after galaxy S5 has been introduced.

And how we could see if this is true ? Wait for the next gen of samsung flagship tablets, with a gold option.

Real talk...Apple will sell a few billion of these if they do it.

Whether you love or hate them, you have to admit it's smart on their part, however overdue.
