iphone_6_no_goldDespite the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus being Apple’s new smartphones for 2015, the Cupertino company still has plans of selling its older iPhone models, the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and the iPhone 5s. While the older models have been naturally discounted, it would seem that Apple has omitted at least one option.

If you were to pop on over to Apple’s website, you will realize that the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and the iPhone 5s are no longer offered in a gold finish. All customers can choose from is either space grey or silver. It should be noted that this is just for the online store and there is a chance that Apple might still have some gold models left in their retail stores.

We suppose it makes sense that Apple would want to reduce the options for its older models, and choose to focus on production of their latest models. Let’s not forget that Apple now has a new color option in the form of rose gold, so removing an additional color option will help to not complicate the production process.

After all the last thing Apple would want is the delay of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus over complications with the gold model for its older models, right? Alternatively if the Apple retail stores run out of the gold models, you can always try authorized resellers, but you might want to move quickly.
