We haven't actually seen a finished gold 5s yet, so it's difficult to answer this question. My suspicion is that I wouldn't want a gold phone regardless if it's running iOS 7 or 6. I think it's probably a good idea for Apple to offer the gold option, but black is currently my favorite option.

But why gold. Out of all the colors we know. WHY GOLD?! Why not Red, Blue, or even Green! Why "Gooold"

I mean if they want to release a Gold color...fine thats FINE. But JUST gold, they can't provide other color options to go along with gold?

If Apple gives us a Blue or Red 5S. I will line up for that phone. I would LOVE one of those colors on my iPhone. Too bad Apple chose....GOLD

I wouldn't like iOS 6 on a gold iPhone 5s either.

Maybe the Gold is to target Dubai, the Middle East and the rest of the bling loving market... Considering its apple I'm sure they'll make it a classy gold... Let's at least wait for the announcement... :p

There is a creative Dr. Seuss-like response to "Would you like iOS 7 on the new gold iPhone 5s?" Something based on Green Eggs and Ham. I'm too tired to come up with it though. Anyone willing to help?

This sounds like Apple is catering to the Vertu crowd. But OTOH, I love my gold and black anodized Motorola Razr V3xx.

Gold has always been an international symbol of wealth and luxury. If Apple does indeed release a gold version of the iPhone 5S there is demand for it. Google image search "gold iPhone". Lots of 3rd party companies offer gold iPhones. It's not that far fetched (although I wouldn't get one personally).

The mock-up that iMore did of the Champagne iPhone looks really really good. The white and silver looked to girly for me personally, but I think the champagne colored one might be my first white iPhone.

Dumb poll but what the hey, I'm bored.

I have been using iOS 7 since Beta 2 and like it a lot. Have no issues with the new look. It's a improvement on iOS 6.

As far as the gold/champagne phone..... Though I have zero issue with Apple offering a 3rd color choice. That color is simply not for me. After 4 black iPhone's I am hoping I have enough nerve to get the white one this time around.

I would not like it on my phone,

if it was gold if, it was stone.

I would not like it with champagne,

or in the rain, or on a train.

No I would not like it here or there.

I would not like it anywhere.

Having iOS 7 on the gold iPhone 5S will be the same as having it on a white 5/5S. The front will be white, only the sides and backplate will be "champagne."

Gold is not a color, that┤s why. in terms of metals and ĘcolorĘgold is the opposite to silver, so it would still be a neutral material in a way and would keep in line with the flagship model being premium. painting something to make it look better would fall in line more with the line of thought behind lower cost products like the 5C.

This is one of those threads in which the threadstarter assumes because he/she likes the idea of a gold phone and likes the UI of iOS7 that everyone else feels the same.

These threads are always a FAIL !

If Steve were still around, I have no doubt that he would exact brutal revenge on anyone who even mentioned a gold iPhone. When was the last time gold looked good on anything, 1970? And with the new purple-teal look of ios 7, gold is going to look simply disgusting.

Although gold does represent old, tasteless wealth, which might just be the way apple is going.

Champagne is the closest.

No. But had it come in the metallic blue used on the iPod Touch line up, I'd buy 2! :)

The newest pictures of the Gold iPhone make it look alot classier than the very yellow gold mockups we have been seeing. I think that if they are going to do gold, that there will be alot of time and thought put into the shade of gold they do, and it will look fine.

Its simply another option. If you prefer the black and white...why care who is getting the gold? Its personal preference. I like that they are giving more options.

I didn't vote because the poll asks a loaded question. My opinion of iOS 7 is irrelevant; it's the phone's color that's in question. I don't like the idea of a gold iPhone, so any OS would look bad on it IMO.

I haven't seen what my stomach contents look like, but if somebody asked me if I wanted to, I'd still say no. We're making estimates based on prior knowledge and personal taste; I think that's sufficient considering all this poll asks for are our opinions.

Of course the new iPhone 5s...(gold or whatever) will run iOS 7.

What are you gonna do...buy the new phone and then down grade the operating system?

Jeez, it's just a colour. Choose another one if you don't like it. Nobody is forcing you to buy it. And don't give the "apple is doomed" crap. The poll proves that it will still lures a lot of people.

Talk about being self-centered...

Did you READ what I even put earlier. Im not mad about gold. If they want to give out gold iPhone thats FINE but offer OTHER colors along with it.. not just gold.

So...what exactly is this about? If a gold iPhone 5S (or whatever its name is going to be) is going to be released, clearly the only choice of OS that will be available for it at the time will be iOS 7. What does asking whether or not you'd like it have anything to do with reality and the fact that it can't be changed?

This is like asking if someone would like today to be yesterday instead...pointless.

I would love to see a gold iPhone! In fact, on my iPhone I use some gold for my phone case/accessories, and I think it looks good (you guy can decide with my photos). That said, I think that it needs to be done correctly. White and gold tend to be two colors that are fit very well with each other, and given that white is the predominant color for iOS7 it would fit in perfectly! But the gold needs to accent the piece rather than take over. If it's the whole aluminum piece being gold/champagne, it might be overkill (I would have made the whole back piece just white glass and then make the band gold). But I'm sure Apple knows what they're doing. I would have loved it to be a rose gold though... :p

I'm actually one of those who voted No and think that the gold will not look good with iOS 7. So next time don't ASSUME.

The question doesn't ask whether you WANT iOS 7 on it. It is whether you would "LIKE" iOS 7 on it.

You haven't seen iOS 7? You haven't seen mock ups of the Gold iPhone?

For those that read some of the articles associated with the "gold" phone this "color" is not primarily for the US market. It is probably aimed at the Asian markets to get them to step up from the 5C and spend more money.

Sure why not? I'll have my own wallpaper in it and icons in folders (like I do with iOS 6).

Champagne is the closest.

Because gold sounds worse and therefore will generate more page views.
