The iPhone 14 lineup will be available in a refreshed lineup of color options, including a new purple hue, and will feature a new True Tone flash design, according to a sketchy rumor shared by an unverified source. appletrack,
post in which since removedcomes from an unverified source on Chinese social media site Weibo and claims to reveal the full range of color options for Apple’s upcoming iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models.
The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will reportedly be available in black, white, blue, red and purple, while the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will reportedly come in graphite, gold, silver and purple. The purple color option for both the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro is said to have a unique finish that changes tone depending on the lighting conditions.
The post also claimed that the iPhone 14 model will feature a new True Tone flash that looks like “a small circle in a big circle”, unlike the current design which consists of two small LEDs placed in two separate hemispheres.
In recent years, Apple has offered new color options with more neutral tones when launching new iPhone models. A purple color option for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro seems plausible, given that Apple introduced a purple iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini in a mid-cycle refresh in April last year to positive feedback from customers, And the 24-inch iMac, sixth-generation iPad mini, and fifth-generation iPad Air are all available in purple.
Assuming that Post’s black-and-white options for the iPhone 14 actually refer to Midnight and Starlight, the new color lineup will mean turning off the iPhone 13’s Pink and Green and the iPhone 13 Pro’s Sierra Blue and Alpine Green. Rumors suggest that the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro will launch with the same color options as their predecessors, except for mid-cycle color additions like Green and Alpine Green for the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro earlier this year.
It’s not clear whether the unique purple finish is believed to be a kaleidoscope effect to actively change depending on lighting conditions, or simply use the technology behind the iPhone 13 Pro’s Sierra Blue, which replaces the other color options. differs in appearance more than in comparison. That’s because Apple has adopted a new production process specifically for Sierra Blue that “uses multiple layers of nanometer-scale metal ceramics applied to the surface to create a stunning and durable finish.”
Overall, the selection of color options for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro could look quite similar to those of the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro, with the re-introduction of a purple hue making headlines.
Rumors have been circulating on Twitter and this information is appearing in other unverified posts on Weibo. However, the post comes from a source without a known track record and it is unclear why it was removed, so it should be viewed with suspicion at this time.
