The latest hot rumor surrounding the iPhone X is that it’ll soon be available in a new color. That would be “blush gold;” a similar version to the one found in the iPhone 8 that’s a mix between standard Gold and Rose Gold. The report came from Ben Geskin, who introduced the news complete with a concept that looked fantastic.
A week later, a new report from Mac Otakara is backing Geskin’s claim confirming that Apple is indeed working on a Gold iPhone X set to be released later this year. The new color option would infuse the iPhone X’s variants with some much needed color beyond the standard Space Grey and Silver currently available.

Mac Otakara reports Apple’s reasoning for the new color is to boost sales of the iPhone X. Apple is no stranger to introducing drastic color options to create buzz around a device. Just last year it unveiled the vivid PRODUCT (RED) iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. The color was a great way to catch customer’s attention well after the iPhones had been on the market for six months.
Along with the reported Gold iPhone X, Mac Otakara is also reporting Apple will unveil a refreshed low-cost 9.7-inch iPad that will be released in the third quarter of 2018. This report comes at an opportune time. Apple is holding an education event tomorrow in Chicago where it is expected to unveil some new education-focused products, including a lower-cost iPad that could possibly come with Apple Pencil support.
We’ll have to wait until tomorrow to confirm whether or not a new iPad is announced. As the for Gold iPhone X, it is highly unlikely Apple would unveil a new colored iPhone at this particular event given its stated focus.
Whatever does come of Apple’s event tomorrow, TechnoBuffalo will bring you complete coverage.
