The iPhone 14 lineup is almost here, with a launch scheduled for September, and with that a lot of rumors about the colors of Apple’s upcoming phones have arisen.
While nothing is certain yet, we now have an idea of all the hues we can see the iPhone 14 arrive in, along with the iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Below, we review all the iPhone 14 color rumors we’ve heard so far, including the likelihood that certain colors will actually arrive in the coming weeks. We’re also exploring which colors are likely to be dropped this year as well.
iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max colors
Below you’ll find the colors we’ve heard the iPhone 14 might be available in at launch. It’s worth noting that in most cases the iPhone 14 Max hasn’t been mentioned, but based on the previous form we’d expect this larger model to arrive in the same shade selection as the standard iPhone 14, much like the iPhone 13 mini currently is. available in the same colors as the iPhone 13.
Purple could be a new hue for the iPhone 14 this year, as the iPhone 13 is not available in a purple hue. Being a new shade, it’s a color we’re less sure of than some, but it has leaked out at least twice.
First, a post on Weibo – a Chinese social network – by a user called ‘Egg sauce egg’ claimed that we would see a purple hue that could change hue depending on the lighting.
The post has since been deleted, but not before it was discovered by AppleTrack (opens in new tab). However, this source does not have a history of leaks; so accept the promise of an iPhone that changes color with a pinch of salt.
More recently, however, @Jioriku (opens in new tab) also stated on Twitter that there will be a purple hue, though they didn’t mention if it will change hue or not.
We expect a purple hue to be planned as we are big fans of color phones and the purple iPhone 12 along with the new Bora Purple finish available on the Samsung Galaxy S22 and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 are impressive.
Green is another rumored shade and it’s another one we’re not sure about, as while the iPhone 13 is available in green, so far we’ve only seen one source mention the iPhone 14 in this same color.
That source is the aforementioned @Jioriku – another source that doesn’t have much history. So we wouldn’t count on seeing a green iPhone 14, but we wouldn’t rule it out either, and just like purple, it’s a hue we’d really like to see.
While the closest current iPhone 13 color is called Midnight (which is, in fact, very dark blue), black is a color we expect to see offered on the iPhone 14 because it’s one of the most popular smartphone colors out there.
At least two sources – the two mentioned above – have suggested that a black hue is planned, and while it’s not a color we’re particularly excited about, it’s a safe, understated choice that looks smart and will appeal to many.
Just as black, white – or its closest neighbor Starlight, as it will likely be officially called – is a color that Apple offers in its current lineup and will likely continue to offer with the iPhone 14 as it is such a popular smartphone choice. colors in general.
This was also leaked by both of the sources mentioned, so it’s highly likely.
The same two sources also mentioned a blue hue, and this is another hue you’ll also find available on the iPhone 13 – although supposedly the iPhone 14’s blue might be more azure blue than the deep, dark hue found on the iPhone13.
We’d say this color is less likely than black or white as it’s less of a standard hue, but given that it’s available on current iPhones and is rumored to be from multiple sources, there’s a good chance we’ll see it.
We’re curious to know where this color would go tonally, as the latest generations of the iPhone have experimented with different shades of blue across models.
Apple loves red almost as much as it loves black and white, so a red iPhone 14 has always been very likely and that’s especially plausible here because it was mentioned by the two sources above.
Expect this to be a bright shade, officially called PRODUCT(RED), with sales in this color contributing to the fight against global health emergencies like AIDS and COVID-19.
iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max colors
Below you’ll find the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max colors, some of which may be the same as those offered on the standard iPhone 14, but many of which are likely to be different.
gold or rose gold
At least three sources have suggested that we’ll see the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max in some shade of gold, but while the first of them – leaker Jon Prosser – aimed for rose gold, the other two – the ones mentioned above – simply describe it. it as ‘gold’.
Right now we’re not sure which is more accurate, but we think only gold is most likely as the iPhone 13 Pro is already available in gold and sources say gold is the latest.
However, we think one or the other is highly likely as Apple has shape with these two shades and various fonts raise the possibility that such a finish is actually in the midst of the lineup.
If it’s just gold instead of rose gold, expect it to be a fairly understated, almost mellow shade going through the past shape.
We’ve heard of purple as a new hue for all iPhone 14 models, including the Pro; although we thought it would likely be darker or paler on the Pro models, as Apple tends to keep these phones smart and understated.
Both @Jioriku and the Weibo source mentioned above pointed to purple, as did leaker Jon Prosser, who went so far as to share unofficial renders of what it might look like in one. Front page tech video (opens in new tab). You can see one of them above, showing a clearly pale purple, less saturated than the purple on the 2021 iPhone 12/12 Mini.
The same source who mentioned a green iPhone 14 also said that we will have a green iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max too, so that’s another color possibility. If all these phones make it, we think the Pro models won’t be as bright a green as the standard and Max versions, but that’s just speculation for now.
Currently, only one source has mentioned this shade, so we’re not confident in its appearance, although Alpine Green is an option for the iPhone 13 Pro lineup, so we might see a variation on this existing theme for 2022.
Graphite has been verified by @Jioriku and ‘Oivo sauce ovo’, in addition to which it’s also a color you can get the iPhone 13 Pro lineup in, so we think this one is very likely.
It’s essentially the Pro line’s alternative to black, offering a dark, smart but downright boring color.
Silver is another color you can get the iPhone 13 Pro in, and it’s another one that’s been mentioned by the same two sources as most of these other hues, so there’s a high chance that this will be offered on the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, as We will.
It’s a pale silver on current models and the closest thing to white – sorry Starlight – you can get on the iPhone 13 Pro, so expect the same again this year.
What colors will be missing?

The above colors, while not guaranteed, count towards the right number of shades on each phone, as six are rumored to be for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max, and five for the Pro models, which are compatible with the iPhone 13 lineup. .
All of which means that this could be the complete and final selection of colors we see. So which shades won’t make the cut?
Well, if these leaks hold water, we probably won’t see pink on the iPhone 14, with that seemingly being replaced by a new purple hue. The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, meanwhile, may not have the Sierra Blue hue you can get the iPhone 13 Pro in, with that also being replaced with purple.
So the only all-new color this year might be purple, if these leaks are accurate, but don’t be surprised if some of the other colors are offered in different hues than their predecessors, which you can see above or in our color guide. iPhone 13.
