Apple iPhone 5S coming in gold?

Apple iPhone 5S coming in gold?
The Apple iPhone 5S is rumored to be coming late in the third quarter. A report out of Japan on Thursday says that one of the colors that the next iteration of the Apple iPhone will come in is gold. Based on that report it looks like that that gold colored SIM tray that we showed you the other day, is a legitimate part of the Apple iPhone 5S. Other colors mentioned are white and silver.

According to Japan's Macotakara, the phone will be released in August and will have an upgraded CPU. We do expect to see the Apple A7 under the hood of the Apple iPhone 5S, and an improved camera. And now, apparently, a multitude of color options will be made available, including gold. Despite speculation that Apple is toying with the idea of building a 5.7 inch iPhone, this year's new model will be the same size as the Apple iPhone 5. That means you can expect the 4 inch display to be around for at least one more year.

According to the report, the Apple iPad mini 2 will also be released in August, although there is no word when the full-sized, fifth-generation Apple iPad will be offered. And according to the story, the low cost version of the iPhone will be launched in September although the colors it will be available in have not yet been decided upon. Black, white, pink, orange and blue appear to be the front runners while green has been scratched.

So who is up for their next Apple iPhone to be dressed in gold?

I swear I have just thought of this iphone version hours ago!!! but I was thinking more of a limited edition golden iphone and buyers would need background check so only the wealthiest could buy it. But I was really surprised to see this.

Yeah, the gold looks pretty sexy. Will this cost more than the other color variants?

you silly fools...the colour shown here is just this site's animated immigration of what might be in case it would stop this squabbling nonsense about like and dislike poop or mustard turd...wait until apple put this thing in their site in few months time before you grace us with your usual smart or hate gibberish

Sweet color, but the only color I'll take over white is red.
