Would you have chosen a space black iPhone 6s/6s plus if Apple offered it this year?

    I think that Apple will release a space black model next year for the iPhone 7 and I'm thinking it will be wildly popular.

    If they released a much darker color than the current space gray would you have chosen it this year? Or would you have stuck with your gray, silver, gold, rose gold?

    DLC coating says Hi!

    Just kidding, if they actually used DLC coating, it would be crazy expensive.

    iPhone 5 slate was the best color to date. That thing was beautiful and almost stealthy looking out of the box. Space grey is dull and boring. But I stick with it for the black front.

    I'm still just waiting for green. Aside from that I don't really care. I use a case anyway, until we get green, then I'll either do a clear case of have to seriously consider going naked for the firs time ever.

    Ceramic would be a cooler but more expensive.

    I buy for the bezel color more than the back color ... as long as the front stays black.

    If I go with a black bezel iPhone next time around I would prefer a light silver back personally. Not at all bothered about it being a really dark grey or black.

    Less chance of it getting marked too.

    It wouldn't have been enough to get me to upgrade from the 6+ to the 6S+, but the next time I upgrade it would have been tempting. Although now that they have gotten thin enough that I have to use a case all the time the color of the back doesn't matter too much to me.

    Definitely, agreed. The slate 5 was amazing. I had the Black 3Gs. Completely black back and front with a slim, polished bezel. That was a gorgeous phone as well.

    Heck, I would have been happy had they gone with the darker Space Gray found on the Apple Watch. I have no idea why they've chosen to retain the boring light Space Gray that basically looks silver.

    I would definitely get a space black for the 7. I went with white/silver for the 6s Plus this time since I have always had black since the very first iPhone. Needed a change. But I am sure I will be over this dalliance with white by the time the 7 comes around.

    Space black is so business, serious phone, no personality....

    As opposed to the boring light Space Gray we have now? Nobody thought the Black and Slate iPhone 5 had no personality.

    It was beautiful. And something I noticed on Apple's website is that the space gray iPhone always look much darker in the marketing than in real life. They seem to make it match the space gray of the new MacBook. Screen Shot 2015-09-20 at 9.05.36 AM.png Screen Shot 2015-09-20 at 9.05.17 AM.png

    Don't know (didn't vote). I would have to actually see the Space Black and compare it the Space Gray.
    Sounds like a nice idea though.

    If it was as dark as the gray in the picture, that would be perfect!

    And would be fingerprint, oil/grease magnet. (Of course if you have a case on it, you wouldn't have to worry).

    Yes, Apple has a bad habit of making the light Space Gray darker than it really is, but at least it's the same hue.
