Apple Inc. iPhone 5S Gold Model: LEAKED PHOTOS

Gold iPhone 5S casing, parts appear

The photos show what the site claims to be a gold casing for the iPhone 5S. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s logo and the iPhone name are not on the casing because MacBoutic said it purposely blurred them out. It’s worth questioning why the site would do this and noting that the photos could be entirely fake, particularly if the logo and device name were never on the handset casing to begin with.

Other rumors about iPhone colors

Of course this isn’t the first time we have heard that a gold iPhone might be in the making. Earlier this year there were rumors floating around about gold being one of the color options for the new flagship handset.

Also the rumors about the less expensive iPhone 5C coming in several colors still persist. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is expected to show off the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C at a big event on Sept. 10 and then launch them 10 days later.
