    I've seen people swap out faceplates for different colors, in not too great combinations. But a Black and Gold combination would look great. Has anyone done this or seen it?

    I'd like to see this too. I think it would be pretty snazzy. :cool:

    I'll trade my space gray 6 Plus for someone with a gold one just to try this myself.

    Needs the gold ring around the home button. Looking at this though, I think the gold and white looks better but then I've always liked the white iPhones so when I replaced my white 4, the white and gold 6+ called to me :)

    I do think it would be a nice option for people who want it though.

    Since the rumour about pink iPhones, would anyone like to try making a mock-up?

    I think with it would look something like this ( I love the gold ring on the all-black faceplate)

    I have the gold 6+ and I really miss the black front, next time I will get a Space Grey but if a Gold/Black was available I would definitely have that.

    If this is done on a 6, it needs to have black antenna bands.

    Yeah I guess they would, but I don't think it would look horrible.

    I think someone is mistaking "rose gold" for "pink".

    Think a redder version of the current gold option. Though I would find it odd if they had three variants with the white faceplate and only one with the black.

    They could change the white/silver to black/silver.

    Black/Silver, Black/Space Gray, White/Gold, White/Rose Gold.

    Think of the rose gold color on apple watch edition. More subtle pink.

    Seems viable to me since there is the black/gold Apple Watch Edition.

    Maybe the Pink people are talking about is a rose gold with white. I think it'd be hard to mistake that. But maybe it's similar to the "iPhone Math" mistranslation. Since they don't need two white and gold phones, they could make one black. :cool:

    Black and gold were the classic Lotus Formula 1 colours, always looked good.
