The latest rumor suggests there will be a new color option this September. It won’t be the heavily anticipated Deep Blue but a ‘Space Black’, marking the return of a color not seen since the iPhone 5.
One report claims the iPhone 7 in black will have a similar finish to the Space Black Apple Watch.
The Apple Watch is in the same colors as well as a Space Black, so it makes sense for Apple to match them up.
Matching your wrist
If we do see a black iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, this will be the first time the company has opted for the color since the iPhone 5 way back in 2012.
The source – who spoke to 9To5Mac – is a little sketchy at the moment as it has no track record of getting leaks right, but their IP address is in a similar area to Apple HQ.
That paired with reports from Macotakara and tech journalist Shai Mizrachi – who claims to have seen a Space Black prototype – mean we’re willing to give this rumor a little more credence.
