Beats teaser appears to show Jet White Apple iPhone 7, but there is an explanation

Back in November, we first told you about a report out of Japan that mentioned that a Jet White Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus were on the way. Tipster Sonny Dickson fanned the fire by disseminating a video that showed a third party's interpretation of the Jet White iPhone 7 lineup. Just the other day, those hoping for a Jet White iPhone were super excited to see an Instagram photo made by Apple, teasing the black Studio Wireless Beats by Dre headphone.

In stark contrast to the black headphones, the photo shows what appears to be a glossy Jet White iPhone 7 on top of a passport sitting on a table. It certainly looked as though Apple made a boo boo by posting this promo. But as it turned out, AppleInsider ran some tests on Photoshop and discovered that the phone in question is most likely a silver iPhone 7 that appears white because of an Instagram filter.

If you've been thinking that a Jet White iPhone would be sweet, you might have to wait for a future model. Most likely, the wait won't be too long; considering the demand for the Jet Black models this year, we wouldn't be surprised to see a Jet White color option for the 2017 phones.

I hope they keep taking more ideas from Xiaomi Like the small bezels too Although, pearl white is a weird name since pearls are typically a silver/white IMO marble white sounds good

what colour is jet black? does it exist? or does it mean all jets have the same black colour (when they are black)... but I haven't seen a glossy black jet anywhere.

Just glossy black

11. AlikMalix unregistered

I agree. To me, jet black means charcoal non-glossy, flat kind of finish. Jet white would be complete oxymoron. They should call it at the least anything synonymous with white, like "milk white", lol. I don't know why can't we just call it WHITE! (Maybe it'll offend someone, lol).

Yeah, it's kind of weird. I use jet black paint to coat the inside of telescope optics because it's flat and doesn't reflect light. But, it's just a name.

Glossy black is the opposite of black and black does not really exist.

Probably not the first, but the Pearl white Xiaomi Mi Mix just got announced I wont complain if Apple copies the tiny bezels as well

You're a moron. Noticed you were nowhere to found in the comments section of the article that said Apple is bringing fast-charging and tap-to-wake to the iPhone 8.

Apple always does it in a perfect way. The fast and wireless charging will be completely different from what Sambomb and the others did. The others will follow directly. ps. You told me I'm moron, I understand your frustration and then I will not answer to this. Not easy to digest what happened to Note 7.

"The fast and wireless charging will be completely different from what Sambomb and the others did." Where did you get that hypothesis from? cnour at his best!

Wrong! Apple will try to copy Samsung again and all their phones will catch fire and explode

I'd be disappointed if the rumors of wireless charging turns out to be the Same damn INDUCTIVE charging. I want true over the air across the room charging - I'll even take limited 2-3 feet wireless charging. Tap to wake is unnecessary as there's an option to wake when you pick up the device. I can just push the home button - same result. Tap to wake certainty will wake the phone in pocket while getting my keys or loose change or etc. hope there's a DISABLE option.
