    Anybody notice that the iPhone 6 space gray is almost like a silver vs the Macbook.

    There's a lot of debate between the 'true' Space Grey since it varies so much, the difference between the iPhone and the macbook has divided opinions on here.

    They are both the same. It is the material, the curvature, and the finish that makes them look different under varying lighting conditions.

    Either way, chicks dig Space Grey. Men don't have white iPhones, don't get me started on Gold.

    I think the Macbook gray is what I like, it's in between the original black iPhone 5 and what is now space gray 6s.

    I think space gray was created because scratches showed so much on the black iPhone 5. The closer the color is to the natural silver color of aluminum, the less the scratches show up. They definitely went a shade lighter on my Space Gray iPhone 6s vs. my 5s. I think Apple decided that since a MacBook doesn't get handled as much as a phone, they could use a darker shade of gray.
