As if those floating reports involving the possible launch of Apple’s next-generation iPhone at this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference couldn’t get any more far-fetched, in a note sent out to the company’s investors earlier this week, analyst for Topeka Capital Markets, Brian White, claims that Apple’s “iPhone 5S” could launch in a variety of different colors, this June.
“Our checks indicate that the next iPhone will have more choices for customers,” White wrote. “This entails an expansion in both the color patterns and screen sizes with the next iPhone (i.e., likely called the iPhone 5S) that we currently believe will be launched in May [or] June with certain supply production starting in March [or] April.”
While we acknowledge that is it possible that Apple will adopt colours (other than white and black) for the design its iPhone in future years to come, given the iPhone has only been available in a choice of either ‘White’ or ‘Black’ colour variants since its initial debut in January 2007, we have no current reason to believe that Apple is set to unveil a range of multicolored iPhones, this Spring.
We do, however, believe that – (based on Apple’s schedule for the past two years) – we will see a refresh to Apple’s highly-popular iPhone, this Fall.
