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.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
