Why a gold iPhone makes sense

A gold iPhone could make a lot of sense for Apple to produce (click to enlarge).

(Credit: iMore) The rumors and discussion of a gold or champagne-colored iPhone are being mined at an ever-quickening pace as the anticipated Apple iPhone event on September 10 approaches.

Over the weekend, iMore refined its own mock-up (above) of what a new, gold iPhone might look like. According to Ally Kazmucha, who is an editor for the site, and also works for a company that anodizes colors onto iDevices (as an after-market service), gold is among the easiest colors to bling out an iPhone with. And an easily gilded iPhone could be a flashy selling point for an iPhone 5S otherwise lacking in flash and major new innovations (depending on how much the rumored biometric sensors excite you).
