iPhone 7 May Have Fifth 'Gloss Black' Color Resembling 2013 Mac Pro

Japanese website Mac Otakara, which previously said Apple would introduce a darker color option to replace Space Gray for the upcoming iPhone 7 series, has shared a photo of an alleged SIM tray for the smartphone that suggests the color will be glossy black like the exterior of the 2013 Mac Pro.

The website now believes the new glossy black option will be part of a five-color lineup, including Gold, Rose Gold, Silver, and Space Gray. It previously said the new color will be a "much darker" variant of Space Gray that is "close to black, though not quite black," and mockups of what an iPhone 7 in that color could look like, including the one above, quickly surfaced around the web.

Apple has announced it will be holding a September 7 media event at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time, at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, where it is expected to announce the iPhone 7 series, Apple Watch 2, and possibly more. Apple will also likely provide an update on the prospective launch dates of iOS 10, macOS Sierra, watchOS 3, and tvOS 10 over the coming weeks.

This is great. They best be bringing that color to the MacBooks!

I still get weak at the knees over ShadovvMoon's MBP rendering ('//forums.macrumors.com/threads/waiting-for-skylake-mbp-thread.1661246/page-565#post-22956776'):

Awesome! I never liked when they moved away from black to grey phones... looks like I'm one of the few actually excited for the 7!

Matt black (or space black) would look much better than this glossy black

Am I the only one who would prefer going back to only 2 colors choices? iPhone 5 was my favorite..


Yes, you're the only one. Whats wrong with more colour choices?

If true, that's a nice color option. I never cared for the space grey but it has been the only iPhone with a black bezel for years now.
