Outside of the side by side iPhone’s release date, few things virtually Apple’southward upcoming phones inspire more than speculation than the colors each new model will come up in. And though we may be a few months out from the iPhone 14 launch, rumors about the new phones’ colors are already underway.
It’s like shooting fish in a barrel to figure out why there’s so much color talk whatsoever time a new iPhone is in the works — as well the iPhone 14 display, the colors will be the first thing we see of Apple’south latest devices. They represent Apple’due south take chances to put a unique stamp on this round of updates, peculiarly with the iPhone 14 expected to look a lot like its predecessor (fifty-fifty with the iPhone 14 Pro allegedly ditching the notch for a pair of cutouts).
iPhone xiv colors won’t be the biggest feature on Apple tree’south new phones — non when the Pro models are in line to get a 48MP chief camera and a new A16 processor while an iPhone xiv Max model could bring a more affordable 6.vii-inch handset to Apple’s lineup. But they will play a role in our first impression of the new phones when they arrive afterwards this year.
Then what tin can nosotros expect in terms of iPhone 14 colors? Early rumors don’t suggest a radical departure from the colors nosotros have at present, with one big exception. With the understanding that more colour options could emerge between now and the iPhone 14 release engagement, hither’s what we’ve heard then far about Apple’due south declared color choices for its next phones.
iPhone fourteen colors: What we’ve heard and so far
The most prominent iPhone xiv color rumor emerged in April when a now-deleted Weibo postal service spotted by AppleTrack

claimed that a purple iPhone pick was on the way. That aforementioned post on the Chinese social networking site also predicted that Apple would switch out the electric current deep blue iPhone xiii color for more of a heaven blueish.
It’s non just the iPhone xiv that’southward due for a royal makeover. The same rumor claims the iPhone 14 Pro will include a regal option, though probable a darker matte shade in keeping with the way of Apple’s Pro handsets.
This wouldn’t be the first time Apple dabbled in majestic. In the spring of 2021, the visitor released majestic versions of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini vi months after the phones originally debuted. (Apple repeated that pull a fast one on this spring with the iPhone 13 and iPhone xiii Pro, simply this time the new shade was green.) The iPhone 11 also came in purple.
Subsequent iPhone 14 color rumors have done fiddling to debunk the notion that a purple selection is a go for this autumn’southward phones. In fact, newer reports have even included renders of a purple iPhone 14 Pro, though these have been unofficial renders based entirely on rumors.
In May, MacRumors

summarized the status of iPhone 14 color rumors thus far, with the addition of the purple option the nigh radical change. Otherwise, the study has the black, white, blueish and [Production] Red options that make upward the current iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 sections. (Notation that Apple has started calling its black and white phones “Midnight” and “Starlight,” respectively.) The pink and green colors would exist dropped this time effectually.
As for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, the new imperial hue would bring together silver, gilt and graphite as the reported color options. Both the Sierra Blue color available since the iPhone 13 Pro’s launch and the Alpine Green version introduced in the leap would be dropped from the lineup.
iPhone 14 colors: A look at recent models
When weighing which iPhone 14 color rumors to believe, it sometimes helps to go dorsum and review Apple’south recent history. The colors Apple tree previously used may not tell us much about future options, but the number of colors bachelor at launch can exist very telling.
|Standard models||Pro models|
|iPhone xiii||Midnight, Starlight, Blue, Pink, [Product] Red||Graphite, Gold, Silver, Sierra Blue|
|iPhone 12||Black, White, Bluish, Light-green, [Product] Reddish||Graphite, Gold, Silverish, Pacific Blueish|
|iPhone 11||Black, White, Purple, Green, Yellow, [Product] Red||Space Gray, Gold, Silver, Midnight Green|
You tin can spot a couple trends in that chart. For starters, both the iPhone 13 and iPhone 12 debuted with five color options, somewhen adding a sixth selection to match the vi colors that the iPhone 11 came in. The Pro series features fewer options — only four for each model yr in the concluding three years.
The standard iPhones — which include the 6.1-inch model, plus the mini in years that Apple tree put out a more compact flagship — e’er feature black, white and Product [Ruddy] options. The remaining colors vary from year to yr. The Pro and Pro Max models meanwhile normally offer Graphite (or Space Gray, if you want to get old school) alongside argent and aureate. A fourth colour rounds out the Pro options.
iPhone xiv colors: What we expect to see
Given Apple tree’due south rails record in recent years, information technology seems reasonable to look that Apple will offering 5 choices in iPhone 14/iPhone fourteen Max colors and iv options for the Pro models. Nosotros’d wait the black, white and red options to return for the iPhone xiv while graphite, silvery and aureate seem nailed on for the iPhone 14 Pro.
That leaves two slots for the standard iPhone models and one remaining pick for the Pros. Given that the purple hue is the only persistent rumor out there at the moment, it sounds like both the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro will feature that color, though nosotros’d expect the pro version to be more subdued.
As for the remaining iPhone 14 color, it will likely come down to which of three current colors — bluish, pink or light-green — has sold the best for the iPhone xiii. We wouldn’t rule out blueish existence the sole survivor, though we’re not sure nigh the heaven blue rumor that surfaced on Weibo on Apr. Still, the green iPhone thirteen strikes as pretty stylish, and we’d hate to see it disappear and so soon afterwards arriving.
