iPhone 7 in Black rumor reaffirmed, concept renders pop up everywhere
Yesterday, we heard a rumor that this year's iPhone may get a new finish – the never-out-of-style black, or “Space Black”, as the reports suggested. The last time we saw an entirely blacked out Apple handset was with the iPhone 5, and this type of paintjob sure has its devout fans who would love to rock the stealthy style again.

Of course, as soon as the rumor was out, various artists immediately went to work, creating renders of what the iPhone 7 in Space Black might look like, based on everything we know about the device so far. Tech journalist Shai Mizrachi posted a render of his own on Twitter, claiming that it closely resembles an iPhone 7 chassis that he himself saw, thus, re-affirming the "blackout" rumor.

The artists behind AppleiDesigner on Instagram even went as far as to imagine a 2017 iPhone 8 in full Black and with a glass back, echoing some of Apple's classic design elements. Check out all the images below, but keep in mind that these are fan-made representations, based on rumors and reports, not official information by Apple.

We can only predict the future. And with time, a company may emerge as the overall best, but not the best in each and every category. So what most people call "the best" actually means 'The overall Best'. There could be a ton of difference b/w these two, depending on the situation.

Subjective!

Best at what? Over-hyping their device support?

tbh i'd be happy if they were to launch a device that had a 50% larger battery than their standard model, just to see if people were to buy it even if it would be like 1mm thicker or so.

Seeing the interest of people in phones that compromise thickness for a larger battery, it would definitely sell out, at an increased rate undoubtedly.

Those backs dont match the leaked backs that we'eve seen... it also says 8 on the back... so I dont think this will be the next iphone.

These are renders by fans. Didn't you even read the article? or did you just read black and skip to the pictures like a 1st grader.?! This is what you should have read: "various artists immediately went to work, creating renders of what the iPhone 7 in Space Black might look like"

Well the 1st grader in me noticed that if they were renders of the iPhone 7, why is there an 8 on the back? Maybe they're renders of fans for the iPhone 8....... Also, sorry for acting like a 1st grader..... /s .... attacking me like that... get banned.

Well Tbomb, only the pure black is a render of the 2017 iphone, as its rumored to be constructed from glass. The others are for this year's one(s).

Your 2nd sentence should've read, Did you even read the article? 1st grade rocks.

Are you capable of responding without being a prick? Just tell him to read carefully and move on, if you really really really have to reply.

good work by creative people. I am sure Apple will have an even better design than what people are expecting. They tend to do things like that. and again what looks good to me might not to someone else.

Finally, a phone that's not Gold gets hyped.

It's pretty sad when a default standard color from before 2013 is more "elegant" than what came very very recently. We want an actual shatter proof glass for our 65% glass handset enclosures.
