It is the Gold 64GB version. Most stores in my area are still showing 9/19 pickup available.
OOS in the UK.
I sure wouldn't want a tacky looking gold phone, would you?
It's definitely less popular compared to the better looking Gold 5s.
The least popular kid on the block last year (Space Gray) is most popular this year.
Apple doesn't make tacky looking products.
For all their faults, tacky products isn't one of them.
You can't make these judgements without holding the phones. I used to think my iPhone 5 was cheap and incomplete looking with the glass panes. Til it was delivered. Thought the Gold 5S was hideous in pics too.
Google search "gold is tacky"... almost all of the front page results are about the Gold iPhone.
You obviously haven't seen the prices they are going for in HK.
Hint: The first digit is a 3.
I still wish they would make a black bezel with gold back. I hate the white bezel
It is just the most..."feminine" to me
You just showed why you're judging the phone based on thinking dating back to the 80s and 90s. Gold is tacky. Because everyone wore it in the 70s and lemmings repeat it sans consideration.
Then rappers etc latched onto it in the golden age of hip hop.
None of that means Apple's champagne gold iPhone 6's are tacky or that they look tacky.
They plainly don't. If they were gold-plated then absolutely yes they would look tacky as hell. But they're not. They look nothing like a gold or gold-plated phone.
Black bezel, silver back. Like the original. Don't know why they haven't done it yet, best combo.
Agreed. I would never buy anything with a white bezel for that reason. it is a bit girly and stands out too much. But theres no denying they look great.
I happily ordered the gold 64gb 6. It's really just a personal taste thing. I assume apple produced a whole lot more of the gold models based on the demand for the gold 5s last year and the lack of availability. They may have mis judged the actual demand this year.
Apple: "we had demand for 2million gold iPhone 5s's last year on launch weekend and only demand for 1 million apiece of the other models. We should make gold ones at a 2:1 ratio for the 6."
Doesnt necessarily mean more people are buying one or the other(because we don't have those numbers) just means Apple still has them to sell.
Actually, I ordered the gold iPhone 6 and I pretty excited. Prior I had the white iPhone 4S, and currently the space grey 5S. So I am going back to a white faced phone only this time with some gold on the back
I agree. I think Apple mis-judged the demand for gold this time. Personally, I really dont dis-like the Gold that much.
I ordered the Space Grey. I like the stealthy look.
Ordered a gold 6+. I think it's rather chic, myself.
The gold iPhone 5s looked better.
Don't worry, the gold will sell, when that's all that will be available in the stores by Monday.
I'm getting the gold. To be honest i wanted the space gray, because as everyone else i was bias towards that from the advertising with it. But i think all the phones look good, in the gold the bands stand out a bit more but it still looks good.
I wouldn't say the gold of the golden iPhone is really tacky because it's not full on intense gold colour, which is why I like it.
Anyone think it'll be possible to pick one up in store on launch day in the afternoon? My gf wants a 64gb 6.
In the afternoon? Almost certainly not.
You should order online and get Store Pick-Up (if possible).
Ordered a gold 64gb for my Mom yesterday and picking it up on Friday.
Possibly. I went on my lunch break last year to pick up the 5S at a Verizon store. They still had a lot in stock. I even went back to the store that night around 7PM to get a case and they still had stock! YMMV.
Did you have to choose a time to pick up or can you get it any time ?? I'm going to be ordering online tomorrow and do in store pick up as well
