Could the next iPhone be offered in new colours?

The forthcoming release of the iPhone 7, which is expected later this year, could be set to become the most colourful iteration of Apple's perennially popular smartphone yet. 

A new series of leaked images has been published by Italian website Macitynet – and they suggest that Apple might be looking to expand on the metallic hues it has traditionally offered in the past. 

Recent versions of the iPhone have ventured into gold and champagne pink, but they retained a metallic finish. 

Similarly, the budget iPhone 5c had a plastic case – rather than the usual metal type – and was offered in a variety of pastel colours. This harked back to the popular iPod Mini, which was touted as a budget version of the iPod in the early 2000s. 

Apple could be bringing these days back with a blue/green option, joining the ranks of the usual gold, silver, rose gold and space grey iPhones. 

This comes as speculation relating to the look and design of the next iPhone reaches fever pitch, with a launch traditionally coming in September. 

Other rumours that have been floated regarding the iPhone 7 suggest that it might ditch the 3.5mm headphone port – an industry standard. 

The camera lens could have expanded in size, although leaks imply that it could still protrude from the case. This is consistent with other rumours that Apple are currently focusing on making improvements to the general standard of smartphone photography.

The mute switch could also be set for the chop – although previous leaks that Apple could be looking to remove the Home button have since been thrown into doubt.
