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.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
