In news that may made me sad for the few seconds that I read this source; the iPhone 8 may let go of the Rose Gold iPhone option. The same Rose Gold option that’s become a staple for hardware since the iPhone 6s days. Since the unveiling of the iPhone 6s rose gold option, multiple devices across multiple manufacturers have made Rose Gold-esque options with phones, tablets, smartwatches, and even Laptops. It’s safe to say that the Rose Gold option became extremely popular as the years have gone by.
If rumors from securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo are true, it looks like Apple will be pronouncing the Rose Gold color option dead. According to Kuo, the company will only launch the iPhone 8 in Black, Silver, and Gold.
It does seem to fall in line with other leaks that came up recently with only 3 iPhone 8 color options being shown in the photo below. The Photo below only shows a gold, silver, and black option.
According to MacRumors, all 2017 versions of the iPhone will launch in only 3 colors. The Rose Gold option wasn’t necessarily a bad option, but there may be a solid explanation for getting rid of the Rose Gold option.
The iPhone 8 is also reported to support fast charging capability. Customers may need to purchase an adapter to utilize the fast charging capability. Kuo also predicts that all 2017 iPhone models will be announced next month. Availability, however, may be constrained until 1Q 2018 due to manufacturing delays.
The Rose Gold option could possibly launch at a later date in 2018. Apple did the same thing with the Project(RED) model of the iPhone 7/7plus. However, it may not be a huge deal that the Rose Gold option is gone. Only time will tell.
Hopefully all will go well with the upcoming iPhone 2017 updates!
