Rumors were true! This year’s mid-cycle color addition for the iPhone 14 is a bright yellow, and you can pre-order it now along with the usual spring color refresh for iPhone cases and Apple Watch bands.
This week, Apple Music Classical, a new iPhone app for Apple Music subscribers that will be available later this month, was unexpectedly announced. As we get closer to upcoming hardware launches that involve more than just a new color, iPhone and Mac rumors keep coming up. Read on for all the details on these stories and more.
Apple announces a new yellow option for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus
Apple made the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus available in Yellow this week. Devices in the new color can be pre-ordered in the U.S. and more than 60 other countries. The product will be available in stores starting Tuesday, March 14.
Other than a new Yellow color option, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus haven’t changed. Apple first released the devices in Midnight, Starlight, Blue, Purple, and (PRODUCT)RED in September.
