    Not enough value in keeping the tooling around.

    If you have one that breaks, the replacement one will be gold.

    If yours breaks and you get it replaced under Apple Care you'll get a gold one.

    You'll get a gold one to replace it, they keep plenty of old stock around for warranty replacement. Probably they still manufacture some parts at least if not the whole phone as well.

    Probably to simplify production & incentivise sales of the 6S. The golden 6S models are likely to be popular, so why would they create bottlenecks in the supply chain by continuing to use resources on producing gold previous gens.

    True but the 6 is still gonna sell well because people can't always afford the latest hand helds

    And that means they can't afford a new gold iPhone. They can buy a used gold 6/6+.

    If you did some research you would know that Apple updates the design every 2 years.

    I talked to someone at Apple and they said if you do have a gold one and you break it, they will replace it with the same colour, they still have many gold iPhones. They are just not selling them

    I think Apple will surprise us and it will be exactly like the 6S and 6S+ with no changes!:rolleyes:
