Apple said to be planning new Jet White iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.JPG

According to a new report from Japanese website MacOtakara, via MacRumors, Apple is planning to release a Jet White version of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. While MacOtakara is at pains to point out that the supply chain source for the rumour “may be unreliable,” it still throws up the interesting prospect of a sixth colour added to the current iPhone line up.

The name seems a little strange, however, as the term jet white would actually be an antonym, and that’s not the sort of mistake Apple usually makes.

As far as the veracity of the report is concerned, MacOtakara has a pretty good track record with Apple stories, having previously leaked accurate information about the Jet Black iPhone and the removal of the 3.5 mm headphone jack.

However, MacOtakara has been wrong in the past as well, for example when it predicted that Apple would release a bright pink iPhone SE.

Why not? Sounds like they should have done it from the start.

A new color after the 7 line has already been released?

The problem with the name is that the two words are opposites in that Jet references the black shiny variety of hard coal that was frequently cut and polished for use in jewellery. The difference couldn't be more black and white.

I don't think Apple will make a new colour availble without announcing it in an event. If a new colour comes, which I don't really believe at the moment, this won't happen soon.

I would guess that most owners of the top of the range iPhones keep them in cases for protection.
Naturally no surveys have been done with figures or anything. So unless you're going to go unprotected what difference does the colour matter, it's all in the mind.
