And so it turns out that the rumors are true. In addition to the signature black and white options we've come to know and love, the iPhone 5S will come in a gold option as well, reports both AllThings D and 9to5Mac. The final model allegedly isn't quite as gaudy as what we saw in the leaked photo on Friday, but it nevertheless marks a significant style shift that's already getting a mixed reception from the Apple faithful.
Most of the leaked photos we see these days usually focus on the low-cost iPhone 5C, but today photos surfaced of a possible new chassis for the upcoming iPhone 5S. And it's a doozy. Based on the images posted on French site MacBoutic, you'll be able to get the upcoming iPhone 5S in gold.
Are you the type of person who appreciates a finely made, reasonably priced gadget, but wish it were covered in gold and cost 100,000 times more? If you are, fire up your disposable income, because Stuart Hughes of London is selling two custom gold-covered iPad 2s for the low-low price of £5,000,000 each!
If an entire iTunes library was purchased from the iTunes Store, all
the tracks came with complete metadata. Those lucky (and wealthy) users
can scroll through iTunes without seeing any jarring blank spots in the
Artist, Album, and Genre columns, or songs named Track 01 and Track 02.
The rest of us? Our multi-gig libraries were patchworked together from
ripped CDs, mixes from friends, tracks digitized from analog sources,
and, um, “found” audio files that could’ve come from anywhere.
