An apparent supply chain leak is corroborating rumors that Apple's higher-end "iPhone 13" models could be offered in new colors like "sunset gold," matte black, and a pale rose gold.
The information was posted on a Korean-language message board by leaker Ranzuk. Citing a Chinese supply chain source, the post claims that Apple's "iPhone 13 Pro" will be offered in four colors: black, silver, rose gold, and sunset gold.
According to the post, the sunset gold color will have a "bronze feel," while the rose gold "looks very pale."
These new color options will likely only apply to the higher-end "iPhone 13 Pro" models. Currently, the iPhone 12 Pro. is offered in graphite, silver, gold, and Pacific Blue. In all likelihood, the mid-range "iPhone 13" models will continue to come in a variety of colorful hues.
The leak corroborates a previous rumor suggesting that the "iPhone 13 Pro" would come in a new bronze-like color option. That previous rumor also indicated that the black "iPhone 13 Pro" model would be matte, suggesting a shift away from the graphite color of the current Pro lineup.
Apple is set to release new iPhone models sometime in the latter half of 2021, possibly in September. The so-called "iPhone 13" is rumored to sport a smaller notch, an updated camera bump, and other incremental upgrades over the iPhone 12 Pro.
