Alleged images of pink iPhone 6S surfaced on Chinese site. Social shares went over the top.
Rumors about a pink iPhone 6S have started to surface as early as March. The reports ranged from real pink to a rose gold color like found on the Apple Watch. For Apple it would like make a lot of sense to make a pink iPhone 6S given the social excitement a post on a Chinese site generated.

A report on Daliulian.net features several images of a pink iPhone 6S in different quality. Some look like press shots others look hands on. Two images show a pink iPhone 6S in the packaging. Some of the shots look really fake, some don't.
The most interesting part is though that this report got shared over 133,000 times, mostly on Facebook. There are several copies of that report that about double that number.
While it is far from sure that Apple will add a new color to the iPhone 6S, the interest appears to be huge.
Apple offers the iPhone 6 in silver, gold and space grey. The argument to add a rose gold can be challenged with the fact that only the $10k Apple Watch has that case color. There is no mass appeal for rose gold. A real pink is going to be more popular, especially in Asia.
Apple is expected to reveal the new iPhone 6S on September 9. The release of the new iPhone is likely on September 18.
