Just one day after BGR speculated that Apple might do away with the “Black & Slate” color option on its next-generation iPhone and replace it with a color combination that includes a light gold-colored metal, a new report claims a gold iPhone 5S is in the works. Japanese Apple blog Macotakara, which has a mixed track record when reporting details about unannounced Apple products, claimed on Thursday that Apple’s iPhone 5S will come in a new gold color. The report states that this new color will be offered in addition to the white and black iPhones, however, rather than in place of the black model. In the same report, the blog also noted that Apple’s upcoming new cheaper iPhone model will ship with several new color options pulled from Apple’s bumper cases.
