Apple’s next flagship smartphone, currently being called the iPhone 7, may come in a new “deep blue” color, reports Macotakara. Citing an informed source, the website says that Apple plans to add the new colorway this fall as a replacement for its Space Gray offering.

It’s not hard to imagine Apple introducing new color options for its handset this fall, as it’s done so several times in the past. And with few major aesthetic changes expected for the iPhone 7, this would be a way for customers to distinguish the new model from its predecessors.

According to reliable information from a Chinese supplier, the LCD glass surface of the iPhone 7 to be released by Apple as the next model will be the same as that of the current model. However, a Deep Blue Color will probably be added this time.

As a Deep Blue will be added to the current Silver, Gold, and Rose Gold, it is highly likely that the Space Gray will be discontinued, says the informed source

The second part of Macotakara’s report regarding Apple removing the Space Gray color option is harder to swallow. In-store and online inventory, particularly during launches, suggests this is by far the most popular iPhone colorway. So would Apple really just give it the axe?

That being said, Macotakara has accurately reported on Apple’s plans in the past. And as we saw with both the Gold and Rose Gold models, ideas of colors are very subjective. So maybe Apple is working on a blue iPhone. Or maybe it’s just a more bluish version of Space Gray.

What do you think?

  • That blue color is really ugly.

    • Jackson Grong

      Spoiler: that’s just the concept

        That concept color is really ugly.

      • WaitWhat?

        What are you talking about? That hideous, I mean beautiful blue color is an amazing work of art! crApple is once again just showing everyone how innovative they still are! =x

      • igorsky

        This guy again.

      • My favorite color is blue. It’s just that specific shade is just ugly.

    • igorsky

      I get it…you’re one of these trolls who responds “that’s ugly” to anything that’s ever posted regarding Apple. Awesome.

      • I just hate how all of these rumors have been just about the iPhone 7 Plus.

  • JustCause

    No way, Deep Blue? Whoaaaa that’s mad tight yo!! Damn just when I thought crApple had lost all their innovation they go and do something like this and totally redeem themselves!!

    GO CRAPPLE! =x

    Must be another one of that d-bag Johnny Ive’s ugly ideas! SMH

  • Wilber Alexander Flores

    Woo blue Jays colours

  • Ariel Okhtenberg

    Honestly, I love that color and would definitely get it.

    • WaitWhat?

      You’re probably one of those people who just show up at a car lot and are ok with taking whatever color is available on the lot. Even if it is ugly spinach puke green! =x

      • jalexcarter

        I really like the color too. I’d get it if it was an option

      • igorsky

        Here’s an idea…how about your stop forcing your own personal tastes on other people, junior.

      • WaitWhat?

        No here’s an idea, how about you little fanboy bitches try practicing what you preach! You little cry babies only complain when people don’t agree with your stupidity! Just because you guys wanna be h0m0’s and buy lame $hit doesn’t mean the rest of us do!

      • Shadowelite123

        And yet you’re the pathetic idiot that spends his time on a site for a product he or she doesn’t like. Wow! Great way to succeed in life!

    • tariq

      I like the coloe. I hope Samsung copies them lol.

  • Sebastián Junca 

    Why would they discontinue the space gray?

    • Anonymous

      I agree discontinuing apples most popular shade would not make any sense. Although, i like the blue concept i find it hard apple would not just add another color option rather than stop its most like able product.

  • ShawnTXDFW

    Discontinuing the space grey would just be flat out stupid. Probably they’re best seller since they got rid of the all black iPhones. Unless the black bezels stay then it really doesn’t seem all black. So blue although would be an enticing color on the backside, I would hope the black bezels would remain. Hopefully next year will bring us the so called ‘bezel less iPhone’, and in all black!

    • Chloe Elizabeth Wade

      They’re not rose gold is best selling 6s and space gray is ugly tbh

    • Chloe Elizabeth Wade

      And black front looks weird as all the others are white I have rose golf 6s plus it looks way nicer than other colors

      • gary

        Do you understand what the term ‘personal preference’ means?

  • Please, make full-black iphone!

    • Gary le

      The 5 was the only one that was full black but… The 3gs was also (plastic)

    • Chloe Elizabeth Wade

      No ew make a full rose gold rose gold looks best tbh that’s y it sold most

      • Jayy

        I wouldn’t be buying no full rose gold iPhone. I want a black and gold one!

      • Chloe Elizabeth Wade

        Black looks horrible on an iPhone tbh Coz every other color has white front

      • Anonymous

        I did that for my iphone 6 when it came out. i bought a gold iphone and had bad apple put on a black screen. It will cost you more for your phone. But you can come up with some great stores about how you got this “special edition phone”! Lol seriously though the stories I told people when they saw my phone made the extra cost well worth it.

      • Jayy

        Yeah I would absolutely love this!

      • Anonymous

        Yep thats what she look like

      • Jayy

        Lucky you!

  • Marcus

    Wow! I might get this instead of space gray.

  • William Melendez

    I think it’s going to be a dark blueish almost like the “black slate” color. I just want a dark phone, period.

  • That is so racist.

  • Chris

    I would like a blue but just not that shade of blue haha maybe in person it looks better

  • Sohail Wahab

    If Apple introduce an iPhone with black front glass and silver back a hybrid. I would definitely buy that one cause it was my first love. The iPhone 2G

  • TwinSon

    They need a Matte Black, Maroon and Maize( Yellow like Bumble Bee). Any of those would be a hit.

  • Isaac Moncure

    I swear. Most people wouldn’t get this. If apple decides to make this the next color. They can send me my money back. Cause I’m switching to…Nokia like the old ass Nokia from the 90’s because this seems like the biggest crap rumor since the iPhone 7 was starting to be talked about.

  • Newgunnerr

    Jesus just add BLACK already

  • Eri

    Why you continue naming this years new Iphone as Iphone7 ?

    They change the number only when they change the design. So, it will be named Iphone 6(something). Maybe Iphone 6 SE.

    Of course it will not be named Iphone 6SS, since it would be called also Iphone Nazi.

    • Bugs Bunnay

      Iphone 6s2

  • onesimpleclik

    i would buy that phone in a heartbeat. i love blue <3

  • Chloe Elizabeth Wade

    Dude do ur research rose gold is by far the most popular 6s and space gray looks ugly

    • Bugs Bunnay

      Men, real men, don’t get pink.

      • Chloe Elizabeth Wade

        I’m not a man and tbh girls are far superior

      • Real real men don’t have a problem with pink, You will probably find it’s boys that don’t like pink.

      • Bugs Bunnay

        Those be some fightin’ words Marc. I never said men have problem with pink. And no. My oringial statement stands. I’d love to see a full blown man drive around in a pink car, wear a pink snap back, puffing on a pink cigarette and you’ll quickly understand men and pink don’t mix.

      • LARRY

        Exactly only Tim Cook fans like pink

      • leart
  • BAiNZy3

    I doubt they would add another black coloured frontscreen and remove another as they do need to balance out the 3 white that are already available

  • They’ll add this color way as another choice, they aren’t going to drop a space gray which is extremely popular and was just added to their macbook/ipad line. Where do these rumors come from? I need to start some of my own on a random blog, post a few links to reddit and watch the fun begin.

    • Chloe Elizabeth Wade

      It was added to iPad in 2012(mini), 2013 (full size) and MacBook in 2015 so not just (the only color they both just got is rose gold)

      • Chloe Elizabeth Wade

        Actually I think 2012 for mini and 2013 for full size iPad

  • The King

    Apple needs to do a little bit more than sell off their devices with new colors, camera, and same “great battery life.” We would like some new features or something different, because if rumors are true, the next iPhone is gonna look and be the same thing.

  • James G

    Bring back space black!

  • Douglas L. Warren

    This blue seems a little dark for Apple. (Yes I know it’s a concept.) It probably has a white front just like the other “colors” No thanks.

  • Finally, I’ll definitely be getting one if it comes in blue, space gray sucks and there should really be a black one.

  • askep3

    Bring black and gold instead!

  • Jerry

    Blue is gross we need that black on black.

  • Bugs Bunnay

    If they remove the space gray then i’ll just get any one and slap on some plastidip. Problem solved.

  • Chloe Elizabeth Wade

    Look up real stastics not polls the most popular model is 6s plus 64gb rose gold

    • mickey

      Let’s see these statistics? Either way who cares what the most popular color is if you personally don’t like it? Choices are nice.

  • The Guy

    No company would ever get rid of neutral colors… this is simply a new addition to the colors, otherwise, they would loose a lot of buyers.

  • JulianZH

    Samsung going to copy it.

    • LARRY

      Apple copy’s Samsung than they sue, greedy bastards

  • Keedybaby

    Red would be a nice color

  • Stefano

    I more than like that color. It’s a great idea if that manufacture it. I currently have that color in my otterbox

  • Yes, I have been waiting for this iPhone color since January 2007. A nice silvery grey or the same color blue face would be nice. Anything but boring ole black that every piece of electronics hardware in the world only seems to come in. 🙂
