Pink iPhone 6S Photos are Fake but Excite the World

The pink iPhone 6S triggered a social media storm in China earlier this month. Now it is everywhere, despite that the leaked images are all fake.

On Monday we published a report about photos of a pink iPhone 6S that have gotten a lot of attention in Chinese social media. Two days later the images have been reported about all over the world including the United States.

As said in our initial report, some of the images are obviously fake, others are hard to tell. Digging deeper we found that images of pink iPhone 6S units and parts started to appear in March of this year, coinciding with a Wall Street Journal story. The report said that people familiar with the matter revealed that Apple is considering a pink option for the iPhone 6S.

The WSJ report inspired several people to create images of a pink iPhone 6S. There are images of pink iPhone 6S rear shells, PR quality renders and photos pink iPhone 6S units in packaging. It is not very hard to do these fakes as the iPhone 6S looks the same as the iPhone 6. It does not even require Photoshop skills. There are pink replacement rear shells available for the iPhone 6.

It is a real pain to replace an iPhone 6 rear shell. It takes 79 steps according to iFixit, but a talented person can do it without breaking the iPhone.

Despite the fact that the pink iPhone 6S images circulating are fake, the popularity is clear sign for Apple to introduce a pink iPhone 6S.

There is quite a variance of pink that is used in the fake images. It ranges from rose gold to bubble gum pink. The images above show a pink iPhones and not a rose gold ones. Rose gold is used in the $10,000 Apple Watch Edition models pictured below.

This is Rose Gold

Rose gold is apparently not what most consumers want that are excited about the pink iPhone 6S news. They want a real pink.

We will find out if Apple is introducing a fourth color option besides silver, gold and space gray for the iPhone 6S on the rumored September 9 media event.

Evidence of pink iPhone 6S images surfacing in March:

Chinese 996,
Russian AppleiFresh (pink iPhone 6S Shell),
