    It used to be that you could choose which screen bezel color you wanted - either black or white. With the iphone 6/6+ and 6s/6s+ that option no longer seems to be there when buying online. It's all about the back cover - pink, silver, etc. The screens all seem to be white. Or am i missing something? Thanks!

    Space gray still has a black bezel. That's why I buy it.

    Seriously? You've never seen a 6/6+ with a black bezel (ie. the Space Grey)

    No no, i've seen black bezel ones. I know they exist. There's just so many white ones. And when trying to buy online, i saw no option for the bezel color. I tried to buy the silver one, but it only gave me a white bezel with that. That's why i asked.
    So ONLY the Space Grey comes in black, huh? That's crazy, but oh well. Thanks guys!

    You were never able to select glass color separate from the body color. It has always been White on silver/gold

    Black on Space Grey. Prior models were black/black white/white.

    the 5C was all white on colors, and black on black

    Choosing bezel colour separately from device colour has never been possible

    Just not from Apple.

    People always commented on how poorly they sold, but I still see quite a few around every day. I guess people like the colors and price.

    I see them all the time. They were a great seller. But they look like trash in short time.

    They sell glass screen protectors with black or white bezel colors
    That's an option if you want black front and a different color back

    There was never an option to choose different bezel color with different backs.

    The OP did ask if he/she was "missing something".

    As other said, you could never select your bezel color.

    ok, thanks for explaining it. I'm new with iphones. Been an ipad guy up until now. Ideally would love a Silver/black bezel iphone 6S. Strange that only one color comes with black bezel. That explains the number of white iphones out there. Guess Space Gray it is then.

    Space Gray doesn't look that different from silver. You'll likely be fine with it

    Apple never offered the ability to choose the front face, basically the only one that comes in black is the space grey , the rest of the phones look white , once they are in covers
