    [Congratulations, you are soon to be disappointed. The color is light pink, not the promised rose gold. Almost the entirety of any copper or gold tint you may detect in pics is either photoshopped, simply inaccurate, auto-color-correction to yield a better flesh tone, or reflections of skin or other beige-ish objects nearby. Smooth versus matte finishes aside, the rose gold iPhone color looks nothing like the color of the rose gold Watch Edition. In neutral light, the "rose gold" iPhone and Sport Watch are pink.]


    There's no way you could have seen one in the wild, so your assessment is moot. I'll let you know on Saturday.

     

    That aside, if it's 'pink', so be it. My manhood will not feel threatened....;)

    We all know the gold iPhone isn't actual gold either, but it is gold in color. (The rose gold Apple Watch Edition is also gold in color, with rose added.) In contrast, the rose gold iPhone and Apple Watch Sport are not a shade of gold but are pink, and that's my point. What is so difficult to comprehend about it, other than the insane marketing by Apple?

    I've seen the rose gold Apple Watch Sport, which is pink, and been assured by Apple store employees that the rose gold iPhone will be identical in color and finish.

    I'm in the UK and pre-ordered the rose gold 6s Plus on the first day this was possible. I received an email to say my phone would arrive on Friday September 25 unless my post code was mentioned in a list they provided. It wasn't. Since then I have heard nothing. I'm guessing it won't arrive tomorrow as I have had no notice of dispatch.

    They call it rose gold, but that is pink.

    Metallic pink. Big difference to Hello Kitty and Barbie fans.

    Total B. S. Preorders are being fulfilled from existing pre manufactured stock. Mine's being shipped, as we speak, from Harrisburg PA!

    So like his last quarter nonsense sell number this is just fantasy.

    Rose gold IS pink: In a RGB color space, hex #b76e79 (also known as Rose gold) is composed of 71.8% red, 43.1% green and 47.5% blue.

    It is not pink. I have seen the Apple Watch Sport in rose gold myself, in person, a few times.  It is not "pink".  It is a metallic pale, matte pink color with shiny metallic highlights (Apple symbol,button edges, etc), and not the pink color my daughter likes.  I don't know why this is so important to you and why you continue to shout out about it being "pink"

    I noticed that Apple updated its iPhone designs to make sure everyone knows the gender significance of the colors. Not. /s

     

    I actually think gold bling works for anyone, male, female, other, or in-between.

    Depends how deep his insider contacts are. Each iPhone that is preordered, is shipped in it's own box with its own barcode, shipping label printed with model number, directly from China. The numbers could be determined with extreme accuracy at the fulfillment center in China. Perhaps that is where he got his figures.

    Still too early to start with this kind of bravado ...

     

    For starters, let's see how many of those rose gold iPhones get returned for a different color when the customer finally sees them.

     

    Second, its already been discussed that many customers upgrading to the latest iPhone on day one, are typically those who want to show off that they have the latest technology. Having a rose gold iPhone 6S sets them apart from last year's 6. So there's understandably a high demand for it. There's also the fact that it's the first pink iPhone, which is going to attract a lot of first time adopters, in much the same way that the 6 Plus sold extremely well initially to presumably Android switchers, but later sales projections show it running behind even the 5S and the 5. Let's see how well rose gold is selling after a couple of months before making the claim that it's the most popular color. 

     

    ?And finally, this is all speculation by a Wall Street analyst. Hardly verification of anything. It never ceases to amaze me that some people on these forums will rip apart analysts as no-nothing idiots when they say things that hurt Apple, and back their speculations as gospel when they support Apple. Astounding.

    But but pink. Oh wait, those people already commented. Seriously. Who cares, you're not getting a rose gold iPhone.

     Loved that phone. Had steel gray one. Since I never used it all that much to talk with when smartphones came out (aka, the iPhone) going to the slab just made sense. Still does.

    Roses are red.
    Violets are blue.
    I've not yet seen a Rose Gold iPhone,
    Neither have you.
    T'is true and thus I will never neither purchase a metallic beige nor metallic light pink. I will instead purchase a granite silver, or slate gold, if you prefer.

    The point being that the naming of colors is a big deal. Marketing deal, that is. Not as much as actually developing the colors themselves but important nonetheless. Would it have sold as much if it was called kitty pink?

    Depends on her mood.
