A new report today claims that a new gold-colored iPhone X is still arriving this year while also suggesting that a new 9.7-inch iPad likely to come at some point in the third quarter of 2018.
Apple officially launched the iPhone X in just two color options: Silver and Space Gray, despite rumors in the build-up to the unveil that there would be a Gold offering.
According to the reporter Benjamin Geskin, last week discussed a new gold color that would arrive soon. Perhaps to ignite demand during a notoriously slow iPhone sales period. Now, the same tip backs this completely.
Originally, the history of launching new iPhone colors are imminent in or around March, Apple also made available the (PRODUCT)RED iPhone and iPhone 7 Plus devices having been announced this time last year. So in 2018 of March will also see a new color launch.
What’s more interesting is the site’s report that a new 9.7-inch iPad will be launched in the third quarter of the year. The same model is also speculated to support Apple Pencil. Rumors have Apple announcing a new, budget-friendly iPad at that size during the education-themed event it will be held this Tuesday, 27th. While it’s not clear as for whether the report is speaking about the same iPad, it could be difficult we will see two new 9.7-inch iPads launched unless one carries the Pro moniker and one does not.
Given the education focus of the March 27 Spring event, it is unlikely that we’ll see new iPhones announced at the event, even if the new color options rather than redesigned models do account. The iPhone SE 2 is also among those rumors in the cards, potentially leaving another event in the new future that could play host to new iPhone announcements.
