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.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
