Apple is rumored to be breaking away from its traditional iPhone colors of black and white and now just might offer a golden phone.
Pictures leaked by the French site MacBoutic show what the golden iPhone will supposedly look like — a light gold tint the website BGR refers to as a “champagne” color.
Rumors of a gold iPhone have been circulating for weeks, with pictures of gold parts and components leaking on manufacturers’ and retailers’ websites.
But what started as a fairly unbelievable rumor is now all but confirmed, with sources inside Apple telling AllThingsD the new color is a done deal, calling it “elegant.”
Tech bloggers say if the company is going to break away from its traditional black-and-white offerings, the color gold makes sense.
A writer for TechCrunch points out, “... gold is one of the most popular after-market color adjustments for current iPhones (including gold cases). And gold has been in the midst of a renaissance in style after years of being banished to ‘gaudy and tacky’ …”
Golden iPhones are just one of many changes Apple is expected to unveil next month.

And a writer for the International Business Times says the new iPhone will likely have 128GBs of storage -- doubling the current iPhone 5’s 64 gigs.
Apple is expected to reveal the new iPhone September 10th.
