Actually, the antenna lines don't look exactly white either, they look slightly gold too. So following that cue would indicate a new bezel color that matches the gold.

Masculine too- very subtle. Though definitely not something SJ would ever approve of as he loathed beige.

Ahhh! That might be the name. I was thinking "quartz" or "sand" (goes with the whole California beach culture), but white gold sounds more straight forward. Somewhere in a conference room in Cupertino are a couple pieces of paper on a table. I would bet "white gold" is on one of those papers. I would betn a trash can,

iPhone 5c (plastic shell, no LTE) in multiple colors

 

What does this even mean?  What are the "s" models if not the regular models "v2"?

I doubt Apple would call it Champagne – they tend to favor basic, solid, strong elemental themes – glass, aluminum, silver, slate, black, white. Champagne sounds soft, fizzy, frivolous. Even with their new rainbow iPods the color names are unassuming and basic - blue, yellow, pink. So my guess is the gold color would be called something solid and elemental – like gold, or sand, or quartz (which has many hues).
 
It doesn't seem to follow their logic to "borrow" the old black or white bezel to go with a new gold. I would think they would give it a new basic bezel color – possibly goldish. Or maybe it'll be gold metal to give it the look of a gold bar. They might give the option to choose black or white, but that would open a whole new service of choosing optional colors – but maybe that's exactly what Apple is considering? Optional bezel colors for all three phones?

Just to be picky, neither of those are beige, and lots of folks thought the "flower power" one was actually pretty cute.  

 

Apple always went with "putty" over beige, even in the "beige box" days.  

What surprises me is that when people talk about bad taste decisions at Apple, they never seem to mention these horrid things:

 

 

 

Now that's ugly!  (and they were perceived as ugly at the time also, not just in retrospect)

 

And they were kind of poorly designed as well even from a functional point of view.

Why wouldn't the iPhone 5S also have global LTE support, obviating the need for a separate SKU (your proposed "iPhone 5e")?

Could be.  On the other hand I was thinking that men might like it because it's a way of not getting a jet black phone (which a lot of guys don't want) but still not having to worry about being thought of as effete or feminine because they chose the white one.  It's kind of a light-coloured white alternative.  I've always thought they should make a kind of grey one for the same reason.  Same as the white one but with grey glass instead of white.

Based on history alone, everybody knows yearly updates to iPhones, iPads, iPods, etc, are coming months in advance.  My 10 year old knows that when summer gets here, a new iPhone is reaching its development end-game and subsequent launch.  It is only a question of precisely when.  Furthermore, a new iPhone launch is preceded by a massive manufacturing ramp involving tens of thousand of hands and a multitude of components vendors, with well-connected tech media swarming around the known suppliers.  As such, it is absolutely impossible to keep all details of a new iPhone secret.

 

Yes, I know that Tim made the statement that you are referring to, but my interpretation is that he was referring to the pipeline and details of NEW products, or at least ones that aren't on their 6th generation with a history of annual updates (roughly).  Analysts and others are certainly publicizing their opinions about iWatch, iTV, etc, but I think that when any of these new products are actually unveiled, there will be some important surprises.

 

Let's wait until the Apple pipeline that Tim has alluded to starts to release its contents.  Then we can assess the results of Apple's "doubled-down secrecy".

Innovate like being the first laptop to use PCIe for the flash HD?  Or the first to delivery 12 hours of battery life?  All while weighing under 3 pounds.

 

The Mac Pro is obviously innovative- let's not try to argue that.

 

Thats all from the only product (and one announced product) that they released so far this year... so 100% of their products have been innovative- not copying- in 2013.  Now shoo fly, don't bother me

A champagne colored iPhone 5S seems plausible. It apparently looks far better than those supposed train wreck looking iPhone 5C cases.

 

If a iPhone 5C will exist, I doubt it will be the horrible cases we have previous seen leaked.

post #65 of 81

A champagne colored is beautiful but color of 5C seem too light.

I want it red as a red Ferrari, blue as blue in 370z, yellow as yellow Porsche, white as white LF-A, black as black GT-R and green like green apple. 

I don't know what color in leak cases be called but it's not inspire to something that great.

Yes.  This was the first time Steve saw and played with a demo of what would become Photo Booth.

That is Mike Matas in the background.

Photo Booth was first introduced in 10.4 but these images are not from the Keynote.

Others will follow but champagne won't look good except on metal bodies, a good reason for Apple to do it.

Umm, how exactly do you agree with him when he thinks black is better and you think " it'll still be better in white"?

Thousands of workers already building parts if not assembling the whole thing. It's remarkable there are more leaks.

Yeah, I don't know how one can argue how mainstream jumbo phone screens or NFC are and then call not following this (claimed) trend a "lack of innovation." It seems logically inconsistent to call copying the herd "innovation."

If Apple calls the black one "Slate" I am going to guess the gold one will be called "Ochre." Calling it gold or champagne both sound too tacky.

Never got one. I nearly drifted away from Apple then, but glad I stayed the course!

iPhone 5s hope is a good update, however the rumors are of a unnecessary phone launch will limit it down.
post #79 of 81
If the event is on Sept 10, there should be an announcement of the event via invites around the 28th in order for people to travel to where ever the place it will be held at. But wouldn't they rather wait until October to get production of all the end-of-2013 products ready?

I mean, the fall months are... Sept, Oct, Nov

I always pick the middle one out of those because they probably focus on drying the supply of old gen products and getting in orders completed for their newer ones. I'd say Oct 8 is more logical... it's right in between the Fall quarter, given a week or two for pre-orders and an extra month to finish squashing bugs on iOS and Mavericks final beta's. The GM builds are almost there. Probably an extra month to finish them... given the rumor that they check progress on the builds every 2 weeks with beta updates in between them.
