Apple has been embracing colour recently, with the new iPhone, iPad Air and iMac line ups available in a variety of bright and beautiful hues. But aside from the subtle 'rose gold' phones of yore, we've never been given a true, bonafide pink iPhone. Which might explain all the buzz around an image on Twitter this week.

The photo, depicting a "rose pink" iPhone 13 Pro, has sent the internet into a frenzy, with users going wild for the new shade. But is our best camera phones roundup really likely to gain a hot pink addition in 2021?

It's clear from the response to the tweet that there's plenty of demand for a pink iPhone. The tweet has received over 30,000 retweets so far, with replies generally containing the words 'want', 'need' and 'now'.

But before we get ahead of ourselves, let's have a look at where the image came from. The account behind the photo, PengPhones, isn't exactly a well-known or reputable source of Apple leaks, and with no additional information in the tweet, it's entirely possible that this is nothing more than a hopeful fan concept.

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.
