In the array of photos of the iPhone 5S that've we've seen over the past few weeks, one set of "Champagne" or otherwise gold-colored parts have appeared: today we can make that two. What's appearing to be a set of gold iPhone 5S parts have arrived at Mac Boutique where they've suggested the device to have its logos "blurred" for one reason or another - in other words: they're deliberately edited out. These parts appear to match leaks of this next-generation device we've seen in silver and black as recent as early this week.
This gold edition of the iPhone 5S would present a third color choice for the likes of the incremental update of the iPhone 5. The release of this third color would come amid the reveal of the iPhone 5C, a lower-cost edition of the iPhone 5 with a plastic back casing and a variety of color choices to boot.
In other words, Apple would appear to be preparing for a rather colorful event to reveal the lot of these devices soon.
According to the most recent suggestion for time - one we're inclined to believe due to some never-fails assurances - there'll be an Apple event on the 10th of September. This would place the reveal of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C at just after whatever's revealed at IFA 2013, the Berlin-based technology convention. There the iPhone would be free of any news-drowning release waves from Germany and well away from any other similar device releases.
Have a peek at the timeline below to see where else the iPhone 5S has been appearing recently. It's been showing up - for the most part - in silver, but it'd be an absolutely wild oddity if a black edition did not appear right alongside the white (aka standard gray, silver, whatever you'd like to call it for iPhone 5).
