See the new iPhone 5S and 5C colors and iPhone 6 concepts here
Check out these renditions of iPhones to come.
The iPhone 5S will greet enthusiasts sometime in September, so the insiders say. Great speculation surrounds the new colors for the 5S and 5C models. The 5S is expected to arrive in the traditional black and white, plus a new, gold or champagne color. The 5C may come in a rainbow of colors according to leaks.
The iPhone 5S is expected to ship with the sapphire security system, a system that requires the owner's thumb to unlock the phone. If true, it will add vast security to the phone, and rendering the need for a traditional pass-code redundant.
Currently, the iPhone comes in black and white colors.
A simple choice: currently, the iPhone comes in either black or white.
These have been the standard colors since the release of the iPhone 4.
The new iPhones 5S is expected to look exactly like the iPhone 5, at least for the most part. The iPhone 5C however, which is made of plastic, is expected to have well-rounded edges and to be smoother than its metal counterpart.
The Huffington Post is featuring their artwork of various white models of the phone. The 5C is thought to be plastic with rounded edges.
Despite the plastic construction, the 5C version is expected to cost about $400 to $500 when it debuts.
The iPhone 5C will feature a plastic body, but will still set you back $400 or more.
The new introductory-level phone will be the 4S, and it should retail round $300.
But what about color? Leaked photos suggest the 5C will come in a minor rainbow of colors.
These are supposedly leaked images of actual iPhone 5C cases. If so, enthusiasts can expect some color in their 5C devices.
For the current users of the iPhone 5, there are aftermarket modifications available to change the colors. It's expected these will also be available for the 5S, probably using the same parts. However there are two drawbacks to such modifications. Such modifications are usually expensive, and they can void your warranty.
A variety of aftermarket modifications already allow users to change the color of their handsets, but the mods are pricey and may void the phone's warranty.
It has been widely rumored however, that a gold or champagne color will be unleashed on the market. These gaudy phones may prove quite popular in markets like India and China where gold is a preferred color scheme. In the west, the color may also prove popular, especially amongst people who see the phone as a fashion accessory.
This image shows the iPhone 5S in its new gold or champagne color. The color is expected to do well in both India and China and should have a fair number of customers in the west.
Despite the fact the iPhone 5S isn't even released, the true aficionados with access to Photoshop have already been hard at work.
Here is concept art for the iPhone 6 featuring a larger screen and solid colors.
Concept art for the iPhone 6 suggests an even more dramatic change for 2014 is in the works.
The iPhone 6 will be released in 2014, so it is logical to assume that its design is largely settled upon.
A transparent iPhone has also been floated as a concept. It gets high marks for coolness, however a see-through phone might not be as fun to use in everyday life.
Another concept rendition suggests a transparent iPhone could be designed, which would be useful for those who can't pick a favorite color.
Whatever happens, the new iPhone is sure to excite fans and will be difficult and expensive to buy for awhile to come.
