    Sapphire iPhone 6s.jpg

    Let's all be honest with ourselves, we would've KILLED to have gotten an iPhone that looks like this.

    Just me? Oh well, haha. Thought i'd share. I modeled the blue off of the iPod touch's blue but made it a little lighter (I figured it would be a little too dark with the touch's blue).

    I just wish it was slate again, like the 5. So beautiful.

    Rose Gold with black would have been pretty cool. Nice mockup though. I voted "only if it had a black front".

    I agree. The Slate was probably the BEST iPhone design. I think I might make a Slate model next!

    Yeah, I'd like to see Slate make a return, or a darker Space Gray.

    I probably wouldn't buy blue/white, though it pains me to say so because those are the colors of Greece. It doesn't look bad, I'm just a grayscale kind of guy.

    That blue is a little too light, but I'd probably buy it with a black face.

    If Apple were to do a blue-black aluminum model, I'd buy it regardless of whether the face was black or white.

    It looks nice but would be more nicer if It has a black face plate

    If you could do a mockup with a darker blue and a black face, that'd be sweet.
    I would totally rock that color. It looks awesome on the iPhone!

    Hopefully Apple lays off the white faces for a while. Four white faces and just one black option would be a bit much...

    It would put it more in line with the iPod family, which has Blue, Gold, Silver, Space Gray, and Pink (This "Sapphire" would correspond to the blue, and the Rose Gold would be the lighter, fancier version of the pink).

    I think tomorrow I'll work on a dark model!

    I thought they were going this route this year. Could definitely see it down the line. I would buy this model in an instant!

    Part of me thinks this pink color is just a test for Apple to Delve into a much wider palette with the iPhone 7. And by thinks, I mean hopes. I'd support the full gamut of birth stones myself haha.

    Yes! Exactly what I've been wanting! Maybe darker, but still looks great! Please give us some sort of metallic blue, Apple!

    As long as Apple makes these things super slippery and with displays that are easy to break from a drop, I'll be putting them into cases which cover up 95% of the color. The most important thing for me is having a black front. That being said, I might consider ordering something like this with a windowed bumper case.

    ONLY FOR WOMEN. Real men only have black phones.

    In all seriousness though, that is really nice. I low key hope that they open it up to more colours.

    Not for me but it looks GREAT! Nice pairing with the white bezel.

    Please do a mock up of the gold or rose gold with the black black bezel (to remind me of what I really wanted).

    If only with the black front... Or a darker blue back with a black front, like the new iPods. Or Product RED (like the iPod Touch) with a black front...

    A man can dream.

    There are many colors I would love to see the iPhone come in. I'm disappointed not to see apple expanding the selection beyond space gray gold/rose gold.

    Just start giving me color options with a black front and then maybe I'll consider alternate colors to Space Grey.
