    Japanese website Mac Otakara, which previously said Apple would introduce a darker color option to replace Space Gray for the upcoming iPhone 7 series, has shared a photo of an alleged SIM tray for the smartphone that suggests the color will be glossy black like the exterior of the 2013 Mac Pro.

    The website now believes the new glossy black option will be part of a five-color lineup, including Gold, Rose Gold, Silver, and Space Gray. It previously said the new color will be a "much darker" variant of Space Gray that is "close to black, though not quite black," and mockups of what an iPhone 7 in that color could look like, including the one above, quickly surfaced around the web.

    Apple has announced it will be holding a September 7 media event at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time, at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, where it is expected to announce the iPhone 7 series, Apple Watch 2, and possibly more. Apple will also likely provide an update on the prospective launch dates of iOS 10, macOS Sierra, watchOS 3, and tvOS 10 over the coming weeks.

    Contradiction in terms!

    I hope this is true! In fact, I hope they have updated iPads in this color in the future!

    Awesome! I never liked when they moved away from black to grey phones... looks like I'm one of the few actually excited for the 7!

    More important to me is the face of the phone. I prefer to have a black bezel. If that now comes with two back colors I will take whichever is in stock at order time. I keep my phone in a Apple leather case and never see the back anyhow so whatever is fine with me.

    If true, that's a nice color option. I never cared for the space grey but it has been the only iPhone with a black bezel for years now.

    Wow, yet another "It may have, but it may not have, if I keep saying this for months, I'll be right" revelation.

    Custom anodized color housings have been available in Asia for the longest time, it's dirt cheap for them to create endless fake mockups. I don't understand how these analysts believe everything they see. :rolleyes:

    They could make a red iPhone 7 mockup and the rumor mill would go *******.

    I'm a bit doubtful of the glossy finish as a one off option. It seems to me Apple would either make them all like that or none like that.

    I'm hoping, but doubtful, that means it's less slippery. I prefer having my phone without a case and the d brand skins are just as slippery

    Who remembered when Apple introduced different shades of colours for the original iMac, or iPod?
    This is part of their tradition, I guess.

    Matt black (or space black) would look much better than this glossy black

    New colors always get people excited for the new shinny iPhone.
