Apple’s next iPhones will be getting a welcome splash of color.
The Cupertino, Calif.-based company will be introducing a slew of new iPhones in a variety of colors beyond the standard black and white, according to a research note by expert Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo at TF International Securities.
The successors to the iPhone X — which will come in 6.1- and 6.5-inch sizes — will be available in the traditional black and white, as well as in gold.
The current iPhone X, which starts at $999, is available only in black and white.
Apple’s forthcoming “cheaper” model, which will feature an LCD screen rather than OLED, is expected to spur a wave of upgrades with its rumored $700 price tag. It will be available in gray, white, blue, red and orange, according to Kuo.
Apple has made red iPhones in the past, but they have usually been introduced well into the product cycle and have had Product Red charity branding.
All three of Apple’s next phones also are expected to ditch the home button entirely and embrace the iPhone X’s edge-to-edge screen and facial-recognition technology.
Initially, Apple planned to produce the same amount of OLED and LCD iPhones but shifted its plans last month after consumer appetite for an ultra-expensive iPhone has grown more slowly than expected.
Now Apple expects that its LCD iPhones will make up the majority of the sales of the next line of iPhones and plans to keep the screen technology in the rotation for the 2019 generation as well.
