Folks still holding out hope that the gold iPhone rumors aren’t true may want to brace themselves, the speculation has just been confirmed by the Wall Street Journal-owned blog AllThingsD. And given the site’s nr perfect (perfect?) track record with predicting future plans, andcorroborating evidence, we’d say is indeed going for the gold…AllThingsD’s well-connectedJohn Paczkowskireports:“Sources in position to know tell AllThingsD that , after yrs of offering the iPhone in either black and white, will soon offer it in a gold tone as well.The new color option was described to AllThingsD as an “elegant” gold tone. “Think champagne, not ingot,” a source said, confirming what not seems to be somespot-on speculation from iMorelast week. Sources say that the gold iPhone will fture a white face, with a gold-tone back plate and chamfered edging.”Paczkowski’s report follows a of others from credible publiions. First there was Macotakara, then there was the revered analystMing-Chi Kuo, and the gold iPhone theory has since been confirmed byTechCrunch’s MG Sieglerand9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman.

AsRene Richie of iMoreexplained last week, gold is one of the siest colors to anodize on the iPhone. And it’s also one of the most popularaftermarket options for color-trtments. So why not add the color to its lineup? It’s not going to prevent the company from selling handsets, but I’m willing to bet it will help it sell a few more.rlier today, welaunched a pollasking our rders if they would purchase a golden iPhone. So far the results are, 36% say they would, 45% say they wouldn’t and the remaining 19% said they weren’t sure yet. is expected to unveil the iPhone 5S, with the new color option, alongside a lower-cost handset at a media event onSeptember 10.
