iPhone 6 rumours: Apple job listing hints at new colours for next iPhone

Apple is searching for an Anodizing Engineer to work on next-generation products

A new Apple job listing hints that the company could be planning to introduce new colours for its next-generation iPhone, dubbed iPhone 6 or iPhone 5S.

The listing, which was posted on Apple's Jobs site on Friday, is searching for an Anodizing Engineer to join the Manufacturing Design team to help create the next-generation Apple products.

The iPhone 5 comes in Black & Slate and White & Silver models, both with anodized 6000 series aluminium backs, the same material used in MacBooks. Reports have suggested that Apple could anodize the aluminium back plate of the next iPhone to bring new colours to the line-up, as it has done already with its new iPod touch and its iPod nano line up.

We've heard rumours that the next-generation iPhone will come in multiple colours since the end of 2012, with Jefferies analyst Peter Misek claiming that the iPhone 6 will be available in six to eight colours, and Topeka Capital analyst Brian White also suggesting a possible eight colours for the device earlier this year.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
