gold iphones

If you’re in the market for a new iPhone, and prefer the color gold, you’re going to have to spring for the new iPhone 6s (or its larger sibling). The gold version of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus disappeared from Apple’s website this afternoon, and the company has confirmed with The Verge that its older handsets are no longer available in the color.

Now, this doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to find a gold iPhone 6, 6 Plus or 5s anywhere—carriers and third party retailers will obviously have their own inventory. But it looks like Apple is sending the message that it wants to reserve its most premium color for its latest devices—the iPad Air 2, mini 4 and Pro, and the new iPhone 6s.

Earlier today, Apple announced the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus with the faster A9 processor, significantly improved iSight and FaceTime cameras, and a new feature called 3D Touch. The handsets will be available for pre-order beginning early Saturday morning, and will start shipping on September 25 in both gold and the new rose gold colorways.

    What if a gold iPhone 6 needs to be replaced under warranty?

    • sh1ku

      They give you a gold iPhone 6. They replaced me an iPhone 5 some weeks ago, and it’s a 3 year old device… They probably have stock for cases such as this one.

    • Bugs Bunnay

      they’ll just grab any phone lying around and just crayon it on. bam. replaced. 😀

      • :D

        Haha good one XD

  • OneBigInFiniteJoinT

    i am tempted to get the rose gold 6s Plus. but then i am thinking it wouldn’t look good with a guy.

    • sh1ku

      I think the same… But it’s so cool, so I don’t know. Friends will laugh, that’s for sure hahah

      • OneBigInFiniteJoinT

        hell yeah they will….

        i wish they had a rose gold/space grey combination ( like the one IDB had a concept picture of few days back) that would’ve been ACE !

      • Joey_Z

        you can source the color you want on ebay. lots of back housing color choices.

      • William Melendez

        All my friends will make fun of me , they know how I like apple and get the latest every year and fun of me. Now i show up with a pink phone lol, I’ll stay with gold.

    • p1noyako

      Looks pink lol

      • OneBigInFiniteJoinT

        that’s what putting me off lol.

    • Totally would have got it had they made the front with a black screen. The white looks horribly cheap.

      • Tommy

        Precisely. Same goes to the silver/gold option. The black front panel is win.

    • dudeimmexican

      Slap a black case into it and it should look colorfully fabulous

      • OneBigInFiniteJoinT

        i never use cases. i just use zagg invisible shield protectors on both sides..

  • Rowan09

    Oh I have a gold mint condition 6 plus 64GB unlocked for sale. Don’t worry guys I got you, forget about Apple.

  • Rowan09

    Still no gold back with a black screen huh come on Apple.

  • L J

    I want a black n gold damnit! The black iPhone needs some love too

    • Niko

      This shouldn’t be a problem. By a third party back housing in black and gold, take it to a professional to replace it for you, or just do it yourself like I did with mine, it’ll save you lots of dollars, and you’ll be good to go. 😉

  • Matthew

    First iPhone that i can recall that has a [s] on the back? right?

    • Noohar

      I think,so bro

    • Gary le

      Why dont it include “6”?
      Also ipad air ii just has the word “iPad ”
      Whats up with this?

  • Blip dude

    Or if you are lucky, your local apple may still have some currently available.

  • Niko

    People shouldn’t really be too worried about the lack of colors on certain models. The truth is that you can buy a third party backhousing in a different color other than the ones offered by Apple, change it yourself for free, or pay almost $100 for someone to replace it for you “profesionally” and you’ll be good to go. I don’t know much about electronics, but I was able to change the color of my iPhone back housing with no problem and found out that it’s a lot cheaper rather than replacing it under the warranty.

  • Harry

    Does any one know RAM of iPhone 6s ?

    • Recall Tom Brower

      RAMrod

  • Jerry

    What exact time on Saturday do they start pre ordering? I always miss the time

  • Andres

    Still wondering why a gold model iPhone has to have a white screen and antenna trim. I think a black and gold iPhone would look awesome and more people (including guys) would go for it
