Apple’s (AAPL) next-generation iPhone will reportedly be available with three or five different color options, including one to three new colors on top of the current black and white options. Topeka Capital Markets analyst Brian White reported as much back in January, and now a new report from Japanese blog Macotakara reinforces those earlier claims. A translation of the post says that the iPhone 5S will be announced in July with three new color options, though a subsequent report from AppleInsider suggests the translation is not accurate and the original post says only one new color option will be available in addition to black and white. Macotakara says Apple’s new entry-level iPhone will be available in several different colors as well.
