What colors is an iPhone available in? All the models — 2022

Perhaps Apple phones are not the best example of what a color party represents, since despite finding exceptions in some models, the vast majority have been characterized by flat and elegant colors. Actually, not all iPhones have had a single color, since the combination of materials has left us with some devices with a mixture of their main color and that of the glass or aluminum that accompanied it. In any case, in this article we review all the colors of the iPhone from its first version to the most recent.

The curiosity of the red iPhone or Product RED

Product RED

In the list you will find some red iPhone models that are officially called (PRODUCT) RED™ , this being a registered trademark. This range is linked to fight against HIV . This idea arose in 2006, a year even before the launch of the first iPhone, and Apple has a multitude of accessories such as covers or straps for the Apple Watch in this color. Part of the profits from the sale of these products are donated to associations in favor of the cause mentioned above. In 2020, a part was also allocated to the Global Fund in the fight against COVID-19. Therefore, by buying Apple products in red, you yourself are contributing to the fight.

Little could be asked of the first iPhone in terms of colors, since the least important thing was this with respect to everything that it meant at the level of innovation. Its rear materials are aluminium, glass, steel and black plastic, the latter being practically a null element in high-end devices of this time.

iPhone 3G Colors

iPhone 4

  • Black (black front).
  • White (white front).

This iPhone was the first to completely change its design since the launch of the first in 2007. Its design is one of the most appreciated in history with its two available colors, its flat edges on the sides and the aluminosilicate glass as the main material accompanying to the stainless steel of the aforementioned edges. For the story there was a failure in the placement of the antennas that caused the phone to lose coverage when putting a cover or covering that part with the hands.

Possibly this design was the most controversial of all. They say that for tastes the colors and possibly in this case it is true.

iPhone 5s Colors

iPhone 5s

  • Space Gray (Black Front)

It should be noted that the red version was not announced and released until months after the rest.

  • Gold (white front).
  • Red – (PRODUCT)RED (black front).

Removing the camera module, the back of this device and its sides have not changed much compared to its predecessor, the iPhone XR. In this case, the blue and coral colors are eliminated and the mauve and green colors are added, the latter being really more of a bluish green. For the first time this phone removed the iPhone description and centered the Apple logo on its back, something shared with the 'Pro' models.

Colors of the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max

iPhone 11 Pro Max

Possibly they are the iPhone with the most deceptive material, since at first they seem to be made of aluminum, but in reality they are made of matte glass that help them to be more resistant. On the edges we find stainless aluminum in the same way that has been a constant since the iPhone 6.

Colors of the iPhone SE (2nd generation)

iPhone SE 2020

  • Space Gray (Black Front)

iPhone 12 Pro

  • Silver.

These iPhone 'Pro' once again stand out for offering more sober colors than the standard models, this time changing the Pacific blue color for a lighter blue called 'alpine'. The materials used are the same as the previous generation, so the graphite, gold and silver colors could be confused.

Wallpapers also adapt to color

With each major version of iOS (iOS 12, iOS 13, iOS 14…) new wallpapers are added to all devices that can update to that version. However, we also find new and exclusive wallpapers with each new iPhone that comes out. Although most of them can be configured from the settings or even downloaded from the Internet, by default they usually come with a wallpaper adapted to the color of said iPhone. Normally we find certain similarities between them in terms of their shape and figures, being the tonality the only variant.

Is it possible to change the color of an iPhone?

From the moment you choose a color for your iPhone during the checkout process, there's no turning back from the moment you place your order. Obviously you can always change the device within the estimated period for it, sell it and buy it in another color... But no, you will not be able to go to an Apple Store and ask them to change the color of your iPhone for another and that possibility is not even offered by paying. Beyond Apple itself, there are ways to change the color of an iPhone on your own by buying a case and changing the body of the device. However, the latter is not recommended because there are no official cases for sale and they will always be of lower quality, in addition to the fact that you will lose the guarantee of the device and you could put its operation at risk because it is a delicate process.

What we do find as an affordable and recommended option are the vinyls . These are sold in many stores and there are all kinds and for practically any iPhone. You can buy one and stick it to the phone so that it appears to have a different color, although you must bear in mind that the touch will not be the same and that it is not always easy to get it right to place it correctly and make it fit, so if you do not have a certain knack for Perhaps you should ask for help or make sure that there is some type of material in the pack that facilitates its gluing.
