Apple is rumoured to be adding two new colours to its iPhone lineup this year, in an attempt to entice customers to upgrade.
The iPhone maker notoriously sticks to fairly safe colours for its devices, like, black, white, silver, gold and rose gold.
However, it has been known to add a splash of colour now and then – with the iPhone 5C and iPhone XR ranges, for example.
The iPhone XR, released in 2018, is available in six colours: White, Black, Blue, Yellow, Coral and Red.
This year, Apple is reportedly planning to replace the Coral and Blue models with two new colours – Green and Lavender.
Specialist tech site MacOtakara , which has connections to Apple’s Asian supply chain and accessory manufacturers, shared the information, along with a picture of the phones.
It said the new colours would only be available on the 6.1-inch LCD model (the successor to the iPhone XR), not the more upmarket iPhone XS successors.
Apple has never released a Lavender iPhone before, so this would be a brand new offering from the company.
It did offer the iPhone 5C in green, but it was a very pastel version of the colour, whereas the green in the picture is brighter and more vibrant.
Apple’s 2019 iPhone – thought the be called the iPhone 11 or iPhone XI – is expected to launch in September.
It’s rumoured to come in three sizes – a 5.8-inch model (to succeed the iPhone XS), a 6.5-inch model (to succeed the iPhone XS Max), and a 6.1-inch model (to succeed the iPhone XR).
While they will look fairly similar to the existing lineup, reports suggest there will be some interesting new features.
The 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch models are rumoured to have a triple lens rear camera system, which will include one wide, one telephoto, and one ultra-wide lens.
They could also be able beam power to other gadgets wirelessly .
