Brace Yourselves, the Next iPhone Might Come in Red

Will the next iPhone be available in this color? Maybe!

When the next iPhone arrives next year, it might come in an additional color: Red. At least, that’s the rumor according to Japanese Apple blog Macoakara. Red, people. Are you ready for a red phone?

Citing a “Taiwanese supplier,” Macotakar says that Apple will be releasing an iPhone 7S and 7S Plus in 2017, that will retain the same aluminum design as the iPhone 7 (which, headphone jack aside, is essentially the same design as the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S).

Now, that sounds a bit off because every other rumor we’ve heard suggests that Apple will be putting out an all glass phone and that at least one model will have an OLED display. Huh!


But back to the color, Apple has a habit of switching up colors every now and then. The red colorway would be added to the existing gold, rose gold, silver, black, and jet black options. We will say that Macotakara’s sources have been right on color changes before. The site was correct in predicting both the rose gold and jet black iPhone colors. Will the online rumor publication be correct about red?

Apple also has a long history of working with the Project (RED) on special editions of products in its lineup, even going as far as to do special Project (RED) app promotions with proceeds going towards World AIDS Day.
