First Sierra Blue iPhone 13 Pro Photos Show Stunning New Color

Sierra Blue is Apple's latest iPhone color option, coming to both the iPhone 13 Pro and ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌ Max, and the first real-world images of the new shade have now been shared online ahead of the first orders arriving with customers.

Sierra Blue is the first "Pro" ‌iPhone‌ color option to use a lighter shade that is still saturated with color. Previous models have offered Midnight Green and Pacific Blue, which were dark tones, much more akin to the ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌'s Graphite and Gold shades. Sierra Blue is also distinctively different from the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13's Blue color options, featuring a contrasting metallic matte finish on the back and polished stainless steel on the sides.

With the first hands-on reviews being shared earlier this week, various media outlets and YouTubers have given the first real-world look at the new Sierra Blue color option:

Graphite, Gold, and Silver all make their return in the ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌ lineup, but Sierra Blue is a brand new and distinctive color, that while eye-catching and unique remains premium-looking and subtle. Sierra Blue's almost icy finish that leans toward a baby blue shade may be a hit among customers for being instantly recognizable and the best indication that you have the latest model.
