I've always wondered about this. When they announced the 5th gen iPods in color I thought it was a clear confirmation for a colored 5s... But it didn't happen. Yes I don't mind that metal blue, would buy that in an instant for the iPhone if offered. Ok I get that apple wants an upscale color palette for the iPhones that why they only use gray, silver and gold. But why limit? The metal color palette on the iPod touches are so well made compared to the 5c pastel colors. Don't get me wrong the 5c colors were fine, it's just I prefer metal colors like the touches. Will Apple ever use the iPod touch color scheme on the iPhones?
