Apple’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are till now available in 5 color options namely Silver, Black, Gold, Rose Gold & Jet Black. Now, recently a Japanese tech blog Macotakara wrote that Apple seems to launch its 6th color option for these iPhones, it will probably be the ‘Jet White’ color.
But this much information is quite agnosticism yet and Macotakara itself accepted that this much information is not sufficient and is unreliable.
Apple never introduce any new color to its existing iPhone but this time it’s a different move taken by Apple, as it is going to add Jet White color option to iPhone 7 series. As we all know that this product successfully completed one year in market with the Jet-Black color.
This is the first time that an existing product is going to come up with a new color otherwise it always happens for the new designs. For example, Apple added the Gold color with iPhone 5s and Rose Gold with iPhone 6s.
The same thing happened at the time of iPhone 4 too, its white color option launched after the nine-month completion of the black option in market. Both the colors were going to launch at the same time but because of some manufacturing problem it was there in the market nine months later.
On the other hand, Apple just now introduced its ceramic Apple Watch Edition which has a white case finish. Benjamin Mayo’s article at 9to5Mac.com says that
“the cost and practicality of making an iPhone out of the same material is not clear and by no means a sure thing. It seems even more far-fetched that Apple would add such a radical change to the existing iPhone 7 series hardware.”
As per my knowledge is concerned, the company is probably planning for the iPhone 8 right now instead of planning for a new color for the existing one. And Macotakara is also didn’t provided any confirm information yet. Moreover, Apple’s official blog also didn’t reveal any official announcement about this yet.
We’re looking forward for the justification and confirmation of this rumor by Apple itself.
