More Claims of 'iPhone 5C' Name, iPhone 5S with 'Gold' Color Option and Home Button Changes
Following a report late last month that appeared to show plastic retail packaging representing the rumored low-cost iPhone, Japanese blog Mac Otakara is reporting that "iPhone 5C" will indeed be the name of the device. The "C" designation would presumably refer to the various color options available on the rumored lower-cost device.
The blog is also reporting more details on the iPhone 5S, including claims that the phone will be available in a gold color option, and that the camera on the phone will remain at 8 megapixels, but will feature a wider f/2.0 aperture to capture more light while taking photos.
Several photo leaks have previously shown alleged iPhone 5S parts in a color variously described as "gold", "bronze", or "champagne", although the legitimacy of those parts has not been confirmed.

I'm calling bull on the whole article if the source is saying Gold is a third color. Considering all the great things Apple has done over the years design wise I just cannot fathom them doing a Gold iPhone.

Can I get it in platinum? That's my nobel metal of choice.
Anyways, more than the change of color, I object to the removal of the iPhone's home screen icon. It's not rectangular - it's app icon shaped. And it's not coincidental, either. It's the button that takes you to the home screen, where all your apps are.
I don't believe Jobs or Ive would approve of the iconic iPhone button losing its logo. It's the defining feature of the iPhone's front side. Without it, the iPhone is nothing more than a generic touch screen phone. The app icon on the button is the only bit of branding on the face of the phone.

The parts that have shown up have been variously described as gold, bronze, and champagne, but I think champagne is the most accurate description. Still not sure those parts are legitimate, but Mac Otakara's source seems to think so.
