Apple clearly appears to be sticking with the black and slate color option on the iPhone 5S despite a few hints that it was moving toward lighter colors. Where the iPhone 5C is concerned, however, it looks like Apple is indeed looking to keep things bright. Photos of what appeared to be a black iPhone 5C emerged for the first time earlier this week, and there’s a reason we hadn’t seen the handset in black before: the device pictured was a fake purchased from online mobile parts and accessories retailer TVC-Mall.com. Sonny Dickson later reported that according to his anonymous sources, Apple has no plans to launch a black iPhone 5C. Instead, it will stick to the five colors we’ve seen leak dozens of times already: white, blue, pink, yellow and green. Apple’s iPhone 5C is expected to be unveiled on September 10th ahead of a September 20th release alongside the iPhone 5S.
