Apple's iPhone 16 Plus may come in seven colors that either build upon the existing five colors in the standard iPhone 15 lineup or recast them in a new finish, based on a new rumor out of China.

According to the Weibo-based leaker Fixed focus digital, Apple's upcoming larger 6.7-inch iPhone 16 Plus model will come in the following colors, compared to the colors currently available for the iPhone 15 Plus:
iPhone 15 Plus (2023)iPhone 16 Plus (2024)
BlueBlue
PinkPink
YellowYellow
GreenGreen
BlackBlack
White
Purple
The leaker did not provide any more context beyond the model name, so it is unclear if the alleged color options are exclusive in whole or in part to the iPhone 16 Plus, or whether they are set to be available across both the iPhone 16 and its larger equivalent. Given that the two models are expected to be identical apart from their size difference, the latter possibility seems most likely.

This is the first rumor we have received about potential colors for the standard iPhone 16 models, and the leaker has an unproven track record for accurate leaks, so the colors given await corroboration from other sources before we can consider them to be correct.

As for the iPhone 16 Pro models, rumors suggest they could come in new "space black" and "rose" titanium colors. The Blue Titanium color that iPhone 15 Pro models are currently available in will allegedly be dropped from the iPhone 16 Pro lineup in favor of the new rose color. Meanwhile, "space black," which is said to be similar to the iPhone 14 Pro color of the same name, will replace Black Titanium.

The Natural and White Titanium colors are also rumored to be slightly different on the iPhone 16 Pro models. Natural Titanium is said to be returning, but with more of a gray tint to it. Meanwhile, White Titanium will appear more like a "silver white" color, which is also said to be similar to the silver version of the iPhone 14 Pro.

The iPhone 16 lineup is expected to be announced in the fall.

With all due respect can Apple still innovate the iPhone?

I’m curious to see this secret roadmap that seems to get smaller and smaller.

Maybe we’ll see the glowing iPhone logo that we wanted back on the original release?
We are well into the iterative point of iPhone development. All the innovation happens on the most expensive model and then features drip down to the lower model in a predictable way that gives Apple a roadmap for improvements to market new phones on. For example, the 5x telephoto lens will come to the 6" iPhone Pro this year, LTPO/Promotion is scheduled to come to the iPhone line next year.

I’m always intrigued by the strong opinions about the colors. In no way am I judging. I just didn’t get the creative gene I guess. I’m glad they offer different colors but I’d never find myself in despair because the blue wasn’t the right blue.
