Apple might release new iPhone colors this year, including red, blue, and orange (AAPL)

This year, Apple is rumored to launch three new iPhones.

According to the report, the forthcoming affordable 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will be available in grey, white, blue, red, and orange.

It's interesting to see that Apple continues to prefer its cheaper models for experimenting with colors, which is an understandable move, as the launch of more options creates more fragmentation and could end up resulting in more unsold units for specific colors, making them unprofitable.

But the 6.1-inch will debut in gray, white, blue, red and orange colors. The current iPhone X, at 5.8 inches, will receive an improvement in specs, while a new 6.5-inch OLED iPhone X Plus will retail for around $1000. The company had taken a similar strategy with the iPhone 5c a few years ago when it launched the handset in a multitude of colors to attract young consumers.

Kuo said he expects demand for the 6.5-inch OLED iPhone to be better than iPhone X, thanks in part to dual-SIM dual-standby functionality.

This is all speculation at the moment, but it comes from Kuo who has often been correct about iPhone rumors in the past. Both iOS and macOS are receiving significant changes with the upcoming iOS 12 and macOS Mojave software updates, and now reports suggest Apple's newest iPhones are just around the corner. In light of all this, it makes sense for all manufacturers of smartphones and laptops to adapt to a new universal standard of charging and data transfer cable, an idea to which all but Apple seemed to be open.
