Months before the iPhone X unveiling last year, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that Apple would release a “Blush Gold” color variant of the 10th-anniversary iPhone. We never saw the blush gold iPhone X, but Apple’s FCC filing that was made public only recently shows that the company was indeed working on the gold iPhone X. For reasons known only to Apple, it ditched the gold model and released iPhone X only in silver and space gray colors.

Kuo had said at the time that the gold iPhone X was facing manufacturing problems, and it could be released at a later date to give the tech giant some time to fix the issues. Just like every other smartphone vendor, Apple is required to share the details of its upcoming smartphones with the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Apple submitted the documents in September 2017. Parts of the documents became available soon after the submission.
