iPhone 5s colors

Apple’s new iPhones go on sale tomorrow at 8am at Apple and carrier retail stores across the United States and ten major international markets – among them, for the first time on launch day, China. Early signs of severely constrained supply led analysts to project a blockbuster opening weekend.

With nearly a third of customers already on iOS 7, some folks have cunningly obtained a new iPhone by virtue of installing the free iOS 7 update. To all you power users out there who happen to be in the market for a new iPhone, your choice couldn’t be simpler: the sleek, fast, 64-bit, fingerprint-reading, top-of-the-line iPhone 5s.

If you count yourself among this club, your First World Problem comes down to the choice of color. So, what finish would you pick if you were buying an iPhone 5s?

Apple has reshuffled color choices by replacing last year’s Black & Slate and Silver & White designs with three distinct iPhone 5s finishes: Space Gray, Gold and Silver.

Make your pick now.

Other relevant polls we ran recently:

Did you upgrade to iOS 7? (over 70 percent did)
Will you be buying a new iPhone? (more than half voted ‘yes’)
What iPhone 5c color are you? (most popular blue; least popular: pink)
Do you like iOS 7 facelift? (more than 50 percent fell in love with it)
Who’s buying a gold iPhone? (nearly half said they would)

Like always, we urge you to chime in below and discuss your vote with fellow readers.


I love glam and want people to know that I’ve upgraded, so…

  • Mohamed Hassabo

    Still undecided between space gray and gold.

    • Danuel Carr

      I would go with space grey

      • Mohamed Hassabo

        Was thinking the same, probably my choice.

    • Maxim∑

      remember to wake up at 3:01AM EST or 12:01AM pacific if you want to actually get the phone this month lol

      • chumawumba

        If you wake up at that time, by the time you get to your computer or phone to order they will sell out faster than WWDC tickets

      • Maxim∑

        I guess 2:50 am then, need to setup auto pay so it goes through quick

      • James

        It’s actually 4:01 AM EST. 😉

    • chumawumba

      Buying both

    • Ethan Humphrey

      Me too! It’s so hard! Well… I’m not getting one since I’m a kid and I don’t even have ANY phone yet 🙁

  • Bjørn Holm

    I’ve has white iPhones since the 3G and white iPad since iPad 2 and my girlfriend has black ones. So I’m gonna go for the silver one.

    • George Yfantopoulos

      Usually Girlfriends get the White one and Boys the black one.
      Sorry to say but something went terribly wrong with your relationship.

      • Carlos

        Your mom likes the black one.

      • George Yfantopoulos

        You are my brother. 🙂

      • Diego Gastón Milano

        LOL! Finally a comment good enough to make me laugh!
        Well said, buddy.

      • Jerry


      • Bjørn Holm

        Why? Since when is white more girly than black??
        At least I’m not getting the gold one.

      • George Yfantopoulos

        It was a joke… 🙂

      • Frozen Bee .GFKS

        actually gold one is not that girlish as we expected

  • Z∆K

    Gold. Only cause I want people to know its the 5s.

    • I couldnt agree with you more!

    • JulianZHuang

      take my like.

    • heyheythere

      I think that’s the most iPhone usery comment I’ve ever heard.

    • Sam-Sam Dequito Althalathini


  • richrich

    more silver for me

  • Fernando

    White and Silver all day everyday!

  • Oscar Nigma

    Space grey, But I do have to say the gold is warming up to me.

  • Silver I WANT IT SO BADLY! But have to wait until December..

  • veda99

    change the poll to “how many of you think, you will get an iPhone 5s in the first week”!

    • rexology

      Or how many people waited and couldn’t get it because Apple couldn’t meet the demand. :O

  • Beck Hoefling

    Only reason I’m going for the gold is because i want people to notice that it not just another 5

    • Matt Schoblocher

      Space gray is different too!

      • Beck Hoefling

        Yea true, but it is very similar to black and I don’t fell like explaining its space gray not black

      • rexology

        Not sure why they named it Space Grey. Grey is not the colour that best complements the word, Space.

    • heyheythere

      It is just another iPhone, though

  • rexology

    Personally, I couldn’t care. Wait…I lied. Not the White or Gold. TBH, I always purchase housings for my iPhones, so, eventually….it’s not going to matter what colour I choose.

  • Louie.

    wonder what the suffage will look like?

  • Frozen Bee .GFKS

    gold w/ (RED) case….hmmmmmmmmmmmm cant wait

  • Lance Baker

    I’ve always had black but this year I’m going to silver. Honestly though, I’ll take whatever 64GB color they have.

  • Ernie Marin

    lol just get a color cover and make it any color you want.

  • Bieberkinz

    Gold would’ve been best if it went all-around. I prefer that the iPhone’s color match in all around design, so Space Gray/Sliver looks good to me.

  • FutureMedia

    If Gold were available with a black face, I would get that model. But I dislike white faceplates – I think they can be very distracting in the dark.. So Space Grey 64GB it is. No queue allowed at our Santa Cruz CA only AT&T Corporate Store in our Capitola Mall. Tried to start one today at 2pm and was ejected by security for trespassing and loitering on Private Property. So we’re only allowed to develop a queue tomorrow morning sometime around 5-6 am. The store told me I shouldn’t have a problem getting my choice as most people buy 16GB models when they open at 8am. They also said they would have enough to sell me one as long as I get there by 6-7am. I’m planning on sneak starting an early queue at 5 when the Starbucks opens. Wish me luck.


      I agree. If the gold had a black face, it would definitely be my first choice.

  • Joseph A. Ahmad

    I’m really digging the Space Gray. If worst comes to worst, I may snag a silver. But I’m going in with these intentions of purchasing a Space Gray 32 GB model.

  • 4p0c4lyps3

    Silver. But I don’t rlly see a diff between last year’s white n this years silver.???

  • Fox

    gold=pimp lol

  • I would pick Space Gray iff it were jailbroken and had an iOS 6 theme readily available….

  • Michael Hulet

    I’m getting the gold one for 2 reasons: I want people to know I have a 5s, and the primary color of the school I go to is gold

  • James

    Not gold.

  • Francis

    Gold 16gb for me I think!

  • TeChNoStyLeZ

    If the old black was available I would go with that but I dont like gray so maybe gold

  • Phil Greek

    Gold, a nice change.

  • alex erlich

    i have to pick a color that I can find easy on a dark table
    it should not blend in with everything else

  • mrbyu

    Just my opinion, but as soon as the screen is off, the white front panel doesn’t look too good, that’s why I never went with the white iPhone. But the all black front, man… It looks beautiful even when just lying on your table. I think the black iPhone 4, the slate iPhone 5 and this space grey 5S are the most beautiful iPhones ever designed. But everyone has a different taste, of course.


    I like the gold, but the gray matches my black iPad Mini better. Besides, so may people will have the gold one that it will no longer be “special” in a couple of months.
