iPhone 13 Colors: Pink & Matte Black Rumored (+ Other New Hues)
When it comes to iPhone 13 colors, you’re going to have plenty of new options. Apple is rumored to be bringing back pink iPhones as well as a Matte Black option too…
The iPhone 13 is scheduled for launch later this year, probably around September time with a release date a couple of weeks later. This means, by the end of September, potentially, the iPhone 13 will be on sale.
There will be four models again – the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max – and they’ll all run on Apple’s new A15 CPU.
The Pro models will get Apple’s 120Hz ProMotion OLED screens and all models will use significantly larger batteries than their iPhone 12 counterparts.
iPhone 13 Color Options
Here’s a quick breakdown of all the potential color options for the iPhone 13 range:
- Matte Black – There have been multiple leaks about a matte black iPhone 13, so this one is now looking very likely. But it will almost certainly only be available on the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max.
- Rose Pink – As discussed above and below, Apple will release a pink iPhone 13 in 2021. Now, all we need to know is what style pink it’ll be.
- Product Red – Product Red has been a mainstay for Apple’s iPhones for years, so we’d expect this to continue with the iPhone 13 range.
- Orange – Leakers believe that Apple is testing an orange color option for the iPhone 13, however, it is currently unclear whether this hue will see the light of day.
- Black – Black is the most common iPhone color, the iPhone 13 will almost certainly be available in the color.
- White – Same with Black, White is one of the most commonly used colors on iPhones. The iPhone 13 will be available in white across the board.
As of right now, nothing is currently known about what colors Apple will sell the iPhone 13 in. But multiple reports and leaks have confirmed that the iPhone 13 will be available in pink.
Apple’s made a few pink iPhones over the years: the iPhone 6s came in rose gold (kind of pink), the iPhone XR came in coral (also kinda pink), and the iPhone 5c came in pink as well.
With the purple iPhone 12, that model didn’t appear until 7 months after the release of the iPhone 12 range.
Apple could do the same with the pink iPhone 13, although sources are confident it’ll be available in and around December – just in time for Christmas.
Are Pink iPhones Popular?
Out of all the colors Apple decks its iPhone out in, Pink has proven times and time again to be very popular with its users.
The last truly pink iPhone that was massively successful was the iPhone 6s which sold in huge numbers. The 6s range was Apple’s last proper super-cycle, and the pink variant sold really well.
In addition to this, all of Apple’s new M1 Mac computers come in a pink option too, so it stands to reason that the Pink we get on the iPhone 13 will be similar to the pink hue used on the new M1-powered iMac.

iPhone 13 Design Changes? Nope! It’ll Look Like iPhone 12
And this is perhaps the main reason why Apple is calling the iPhone 13 the iPhone 12s – it is an incremental update, nothing major in the design department
