Latest rumours suggest Apple plans to offer the 5S handset in gold or 'champagne'

  • 'Multiple sources' have said that the next iPhone will come in a gold option
  • Gold is currently one of the most popular after-market colour adjustments
  • Leaked parts in May revealed iPhone components in both gold and silver
  • Launch of new generation iPhone 5S and 5C is believed to be weeks away

The next iPhone will come in gold, according to the latest Apple rumours.
Techcrunch columnist MG Siegler said he has heard by 'multiple sources' there will be a gold iPhone 5S.
A gold option had first been suggested in May when leaked parts of the new iPhone were shown to be markedly different from those in the current model.
The iPhone is currently only available in black and white.

The parts included the loud-speaker bracket, ear speaker bracket, vibrating motor assembly, Wi-Fi flex cable ribbon and SIM card tray - which were in both silver and gold.
Last week Rene Ritchie from iMore outlined why a gold iPhone could be a good move for Apple.
According to iMore’s Ally Kazmucha, making a gold iPhone is much simpler than making one that is black because it’s an easier colour to anodise.
The process involves a straightforward chemical reaction, with the possible addition of dye depending on the exact colour needed.
Gold is also one of the most popular after-market colour adjustments for current iPhones, including gold cases.

Given how popular gold is as an aftermarket option for colour-treatments, and how many gold cases there are - including but certainly not limited to the Asian markets - it could simply be the decision to offer supply where there's demand,’ said Mr Ritchie. 
MG Siegler from Techcrunch believes that the colour could be more champagne than gold, similar to the old gold iPod mini.
However, he also notes, that this model of the iPod was the shortest-lived.

Apple is set to officially unveil the new generation iPhone at an event next month, insiders say.
It is believed the event, allegedly on September 10, will see the launch of the upcoming iPhone 5S and possibly also a rumoured iPhone 5C 'low-cost' device.
Last week, Japanese website believes it has confirmation that the successor to iPhone 5 will be called the iPhone 5S, and that Apple’s rumoured low-cost iPhone will be known as the iPhone 5C.
The website Macotakara said that its 'sources in Asia' have confirmed the names, which have long been under speculation. 
The C in the iPhone 5C is thought to stand for 'colour' which could suggest that the phone will come in a range of colours, rather than the standard black and white options.
Other rumoured updates on the new iPhone 5S include an slow-motion camera and a fingerprint sensor since a string of code in the latest release of its latest iOS7 Software implied a scanner function.


 A niche gadget designer has created the world's most expensive iPhone 5 from gold, white diamonds and a rare £9million black diamond.
