Rumor suggests Apple working on new ‘Blush Gold’ iPhone X
Fresh rumors shared by leaker Benjamin Geskin have suggested Apple could be working on a new ‘Blush Gold’ iPhone X, supposedly codenamed D21A that is “in production” ahead of an official public launch later this year.
The Latvian based concept creator reports that Apple had intentionally held-off from releasing the ‘Blush Gold’ iPhone X that was rumored back in September until now, with new pictures shared to Twitter on Monday claiming to show colored SIM card trays for the upcoming device.
Reports of a ‘Copper Gold’ iPhone X came in thick and fast in the run-up to the launch of the handset back in September, however those claims never materialised. One suggestion was that similar to the delayed launch of the white iPhone 4, Apple wasn’t able to find the perfect color shade of gold in time to release the handset alongside the space gray and silver devices.
While reports of a new ‘Blush Gold’ iPhone X have been met with criticism and doubt by some, last March Apple released a short-lived special edition (PRODUCT)RED iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus to celebrate the 10 year partnership between Apple and (RED), the charity working to “bring the world a step closer to an AIDS-free generation”.
While it’s unlikely that a new ‘Blush Gold’ iPhone X would contribute profits to a charitable cause, it goes to show Apple is open to releasing new color options in-between the regular yearly iPhone upgrade cycle, and could make rumors of a ‘Blush Gold’ handset more plausible.

It’s possible Apple could unveil the new device during their ‘Let’s take a field trip’ event on March 27 which is expected to see the launch of a lower-priced MacBook aimed at students and a new entry-level iPad, alongside publicly releasing iOS 11.3 that features ClassKit and Classwork.
