Wait, are we finally getting a hot pink iPhone?

While it used to be a sea of silvers and greys, Apple has been embracing colour recently. The iPhone, iPad and iMac are all available in various dazzling hues these days, but there's one colour fans have been yearning for – and it might finally arrive in 2023.

Aside from the subtle 'rose gold' phones of yore, we've never been given a true, bonafide 'hot pink' iPhone. But while recent rumours have suggested green and red would be 2023's new colours, a prominent Apple leaker has now claimed the company is opting for pink. Which, given that this is the official year of the Barbie, makes perfect sense.

Apple leaker ShrimpApplePro has a solid track record, so their claim that a pink iPhone is on the way might hold more credence than most. The leaker claims that the news comes from an employee at Foxconn, which manufactures the iPhone, and has met with all manner of jubilant responses on Twitter.

That said, it's not entirely unreasonable to assume Apple could release a pink iPhone soon. In the last few months, the company has released a pink iMac, a pink iPad Air and even pink AirPods Max. And with the Apple Watch rumoured to be getting an iPhone 12-inspired redesign, it seems Apple is keen to consolidate the aesthetics of its products. Perhaps pink could indeed be on the way to the iPhone 13 line up.

With all the amazing iPhone 13 leaks we've seen so far, it's clear we're looking at a worthy successor to the iPhone 12. And if you like your gadgets pink, perhaps it'll be the ultimate upgrade.
