Apple is rumored to be considering multicolored iPhones when it launches its new 5S and low-cost versions in the coming months.
According to industry insiders, the tech giant is said to be ditching the black-and-white only models in favor of a rainbow of options. From pink to gold to green to blue, the new iPhones would come in a variety of colors similar to Apple's iPods.
Japanese Apple news site Macotakara (as translated by MacRumors) reported Thursday that the iPhone 5S could be offered in gold, green, and possibly pink
. MacRumors also noted that the new model could feature a dual-LED flash. The 5S is rumored to hit the market this fall, though some sources have set its premiere date as early as July.

A new, low-cost iPhone, which has a plastic shell rather than aluminum, could come in white, pink, green, blue, and yellow-orange, or navy, gold-orange, white, and gray, according to MacRumors. It is speculated to cost $350 or $400, and enter the trial phase as soon as next month.
In the past, Macotakara reliably predicted the redesign of the seventh generation iPod nano and the updated 4-inch screen of the fifth generation iPod touch.
