Dubious report says yellow iPhone 14 to launch next week

A post on Chinese social media says this year's mid-cycle color update for the iPhone 14 will be yellow, though the source has no clear track record.

A rumored new iPhone 14 could be as yellow as this iPhone 5c

It's now routine for Apple to introduce a new color variant of its current iPhone, around six months after the initial launch. In March 22, the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro gained different shades of green, for instance.

In 2021, the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini saw a new purple color, approximately midway between the initial launch of those models, and of the iPhone 13 range.

Now a very brief blog on Japanese site Macotakara references an even briefer comment on Weibo about this year's new color. The word "yellow," is the sum total of the claimed leak.

So even if it's accurate, it's not clear which models of iPhone 14 will get the new color. Nor is it known whether there will be two or more different yellows, nor what official name Apple gives the color.

The original source does not appear to have a track record in accurately leaking Apple News. However, MacRumors does also add that the yellow iPhone will be announced as early as the week beginning March 6, 2023, so there isn't long to wait.

    Yellow would be a nice spring colour to launch. I like the idea.

    Not to mention the product red 7 and 8 in the spring of 2017 and 2018, respectively

    I cannot even tell you what color my current iPhone is as I always encase it in silicone. The silicone case is pale green.

    So you always apply silicone to cover your Apple Silicon.

    Yellow ... and the man, who wrote it wasn't he Arthur Phillip Dent? And are you sure, that he was writing about a phone?

    No one needs a yellow iPhone 14 at this point. We're all waiting for the 15 now.
    I’m sure some people would like it.  The real question would be if Apple knew many months ago they were moving to usb-c,  why continue with this.
