iPhone 5se: How Apple Almost Released A Pink iPhone

We are all awaiting for Apple’s next tank, the much touted iPhone 7, although after hearing some rumors, we might have to wait until after 2016.  Meanwhile, a new iPhonee model, the iPhone 5se is on its way, and it was said to bring a very peculiar shade of color, or so we were led to believe. Read all about it, here!



The last few days have been particularly rich when it comes to Apple rumors and leaks on the new iPhone 5se, a smaller alternative to the recent iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, with a smaller size of only 4 inches. Yet, the most interesting of all those rumors was one that talked about a major change to the color gamma Apple have gotten the users used to.

It would seem the iPhone 5se will feature some major differences with previous Apple devices, not only when it comes to the hardware and software side of things but also when it comes to aesthetics. According to Japanese website Mac Otakara, Apple were planning a variant in their regular color palette that they used for the iPhone 5s, and it seemed the new member of the family was going to dress in full, bright pink. This is a very different pink from the Rose Gold variant we saw on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, and its closer to the color featured on the sixth generation iPod Touch or seventh generation iPod Nano.



Everything looked promising, and the rumor did manage to get some hype, but unfortunately, Mark Gurman took the stage to crush everyone’s hope: the actual color of the iPhone 5se will feature classis Rose Gold, same as the iPhone 6s. It would have been great to see such a throwback to the classic iPod Touch aesthetics, but it seems this time around we will have to settle for the colors we already like and love.

As of now, we know the iPhone 5se will be a smaller alternative, but featuring all of the horse power of its older siblings in the phone family. Whatever the case may be, we will have to wait until the 15th of March to learn more about this new device.
