    My last 2 iPhones, my 5 and my 5S (current phone) were both purchased in white.

    But I reserved a spot to buy a Space Grey on launch day.
    I just love the grey back and black front, gorgeous, more so than my black front and back iPhone 4.

    Anyone else completely changing colors?

    I have had a black phone since the 5. Ordered silver this time. I am looking forward to the change.

    I alternate mine. My numbered models are black, my S models are white.

    I have the space grey and ordered space grey, but I'm seriously considering switching to the rose gold. I like the rose color but hate the white bezel, so... not sure yet which will win out for me.

    What baffles me the most is why Apple make only one black model. Like seriously????

    What ever happened to their diversity improvement plans??

    I want a black bezel, so the choice is easy. If they made a gold with a black bezel I think I would have tried that this year.

    I had black iPhone 4/4s i absolutely loved it. Looked very sleek and elegant, With iPhone 5 I went with white which was nice. I iked the silver look. 5s I went with the gold since it was the newest color i wanted to try it out for a while. For iPhone 6 I went with space gray, I decided for 6s I was going for the space gray again but i didn't want the same phone again so Im getting the plus this time around. I hope i dont regret it

    Same. Been using white for the past 4 years (4s, then 5s), now intending to switch to black. Gold and Rose don't really appeal to me, and I think the black iPhone looks stunning with the red case.

    I had a black 4S/5, silver 6+, thinking of going back to black for 6S+

    The case is where I'm thinking I'll switch things up. My 5s is in a black leather case, making it entirely black and very classy-looking. With the 6s I'm going to go with a colored leather case or keep it naked, or maybe do a skin or sticker. Something more fun than what I have now.

    Unless of course I switch up for the rose, in which case the phone will definitely not be getting a case.

    Going gold 6+ to space grey 6s+. I would have gone sg last time too, but they had none in stock. Grown to like the gold over the year, and may even switch to silver within the first couple of weeks, will see how I go.

    Went gold to rose gold this year. I had gold the for both 5s and 6 Plus and wanted to change, but silver is boring and I was hoping for a darker space gray. So I decided to try the new color this year and if I hate it I will change again for iPhone 7.

    Yup. I've flipped back and forth between black and white before, but I've had white bezels since my iPhone 5 and it's time to go back. I think the black bezel around the bigger displays just looks better, more elegant. Not that white is distracting from what's on screen, just the 6s Plus looks better in black/Space Gray. Would have gone with black/Rose Gold had the option been there, I'd love to rock the new color but the white bezels kill it for me. I think if the screen didn't curve and was flat like the 5/5s, white would much classier on these models. White 4/4s, classy. White 5/5s, classy. Black 6/6s, classy.

    (Black iPhone 4 -> Silver 5 -> Gold 5s -> Silver 6 Plus -> Space Gray 6s Plus)
    (Black iPad 1 -> White iPad 2 -> Silver mini -> Space Gray mini 2 -> Space Gray Air 2)

    for the first time I switched from the space grey/black to silver/white. Just felt like changing it up a bit I always have a case anyway, I have kids so I need some sort of protection against them.

    I use the Model T approach when deciding. I like any colour bezel on my iToys, as long as they're black.

    Had every generation in black all the back to the 3G. Going for white/silver this time, so should be interesting!

    Every year I say I will go for white/silver but always chicken out and stick with black/space grey.

    It's a bit of a running joke with my wife.

    Had a SG 5S and 6 so this time going with silver, as the SG was a fingerprint magnet for me so would like the white one for less smudges.

    Silver with white silicone case :)

    Been buying black since the iPhone 3GS. Don't see myself changing. If they do a black face with one of the other colors, maybe I'd be tempted

    Was v tempted to go to space grey or gold but stuck with silver. The gold is too yellow. If it had been lighter like on the 5s I'd have been all over it.

    4: Black
    4s: White
    5: White
    5s: White/Gold
    6 Plus: White/Silver
    6s Plus: White/Silver

    Yeah, I'm a color alternator but this year I'm also changing it up a bit with physical and storage size as well. I'm going from a Space Grey iPhone 6 128GB configuration to a Gold iPhone 6s Plus 64GB one. I really want the bigger screen and the GOLD really attracts me, much like Gollum to the RING. But I'm still iffy on the storage space, what with 4k video, 12mp photos, and Live Photos. But with a good LTE connection, I'm hoping to store them off phone.
