I doubt Apple allowed that. It would be a seriously slippery slope. Other carriers might soon begin to demand such a concession. Would Apple go down that road for ~10 million phones a year, if that?   But, neither you nor I know. We'll see shortly after iPhones ship to Docomo and photos hit the net.
This is a time where I will pull out the "Steve would never approve that." card. It was so easily fixable to make a large oval window around the "iPhone" label.  I'm not as put off by the case colors as about everyone else here. I think the model is intended for a younger consumer. But this case design is wrong-objectively wrong.
Apple won't spend several billion dollars on Square, Inc. when they can make oodles partnering with them or directly competing with them. Why throw billions to solve a problem they already have spent years and countless millions of dollars solving?  Instead of merchants using a Square register or card reader dongle to swipe your card, the merchant would only need an iOS device (no card reader) and accept a payment from another nearby secure iOS device (with fingerprint...
Nope, not just you...they hurt my eyes.
Hmmm...it could "just" be the 802.11ac. Man, it's gonna be a very expensive fall updating my devices to 802.11ac. 
MG Siegler wrote that he had inside info a new TV product that was not a TV. That smelled credible and this could be it. Assuming this new device weighs the same as the current Apple TV (about a pound: .6 lbs and another .4 lbs with packaging), we're talking somewhere just shy of 200,000 units. It could be heavier. Pure back-of-the-envelope and a lot of assumptions there. If this shipment is all they plan on stocking at launch, that seems to be nicely sized for a US...
It's usually just 7 days in advance, right? We should be seeing reports of invitations maybe tomorrow for the September 10th event.
One can dream...but Elon would never take a "job" at Apple. He's too talented, has too much of an entrepreneurial spirit, and has so much more room to grow his ideas and influence outside of Apple. I don't like to make Steve Jobs comparisons but, in my view, Elon is the closest thing we've got to Jobs nowadays. Can you imagine Steve going to work for someone else?   Not to mention that Tesla's market cap is about 20 billion dollars. Add a 20% premium to that and it would...
I seriously doubt they would restrict a gold iPhone to retail and high end jewelry stores. Apple is in the business of moving product. If people want to buy them, they won't make it harder to get them.   Having said that, I think it would be wise to sell the color iPhone only through the Apple online and b&m retail stores. That is, if they really are concerned about moving more of their own phones.
Hmmm, I would bet that Apple would want a logo that was easily set apart visually from the rest of the back panel. A logo of the same color as the back panel would hardly be visible.   Apple and Apple customers want to clearly see that logo. That may be the reason for using a high-contrast  on the back of the proposed iPhone Color.
