You can actually get the iPhone 14 in five different colors, but it seems very likely that there will be a sixth option to choose from soon.
Mark Gorman — well-known Bloomberg journalist and leaker — has claimed (via MacRumors) that “a new iPhone 14 color is really imminent.” Gurman has a great track record, so we’re inclined to believe them, and while they weren’t specific about what the new iPhone case would be, we can make our educated guess.
As you can see, this isn’t the first time we’ve heard about a new iPhone 14 color. Just a few days ago, another source suggested that the iPhone 14 will soon be available in yellow.

Although the latter source does not have a Gurman record, MacRumors claims to have heard from multiple sources that Apple has a product brief planned for this week. As such, we can be almost certain that Apple has an announcement imminent to make, and it will likely have to do with the color of the new iPhone 14, with yellow being the most likely option.
There’s also a model for this on Apple’s side, with a green shade for the iPhone 13 launched this time last year, and a purple color for the iPhone 12 the year before that.
We hope that the yellow color is the one that is planned for the iPhone 14 this year, because except for the red color, all the current shades are very faded and understated, so we could use more bright colors. Of course, yellow might be a tad too pale, but it still has the potential to be more flashy than the likes of white and black.
Oh, and if the iPhone 14 is getting a new color, the same color will almost certainly be coming to the iPhone 14 Plus as well, since the two phones are currently available in an identical array of shades. What’s less clear is if the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will be available in a new color as well. If so, it may be a slightly different color.
Analysis: When will this new color be released?
We can only guess on what day, exactly, Apple will make this announcement, though (as mentioned) we know it will happen sometime this week.
However, Apple tends to prefer announcing things on Tuesdays or Wednesdays. In fact, last year’s green was revealed on a Tuesday, and so was the previous year’s purple, so Tuesday is our best guess.
It’s Tuesday now at the time of writing, so the arrival of the new iPhone 14 may already be imminent, and hopefully, it will add some much-needed brightness to the current selection of iPhone 14 colors.
