If you’re into the lighter things in life, the rumored switch to USB-C or new cameras might not be the most exciting aspects of the iPhone 15 line, but the prospect of a pink iPhone. 15.
There have been rumors that at least one of Apple’s upcoming iPhone 15 models will be available in this color, but how likely is that? What shade of pink can we get? What is the model or models that may be available in this color?
We don’t know for sure, but based on leaks and rumours, we can pretty well guess the answers to all of these questions.
Will there be a pink iPhone 15?
So will there really be a pink iPhone 15? Well, multiple sources say yes. We first heard about this possibility in February, when 9to5Mac He claimed – citing an unnamed source – that Apple was apparently testing the iPhone 15 in pink.
However, the source apparently added that this is early information and that Apple’s plans may change.
Since then, we heard from another source in July that pink was one of the planned iPhone 15 colors. This indicates that the shade has been tested and will be rendered.

This information is said to come from an employee of Foxconn (which is one of the companies that make iPhones) and they claim to have seen the iPhone 15 colors “green, light yellow and pink”.
However, we still take all this with a pinch of salt, because although pink seems likely – especially since pink was previously introduced on other models, including the iPhone 13 – this is an unconfirmed rumor. We won’t know for sure if there’s a pink iPhone 15 until the iPhone 15 line is announced, which will likely happen in mid-September.
Even then, it’s not out of the question that the pink model could arrive later, as Apple sometimes offers an additional color, sometime after launch. For example, Apple introduced a yellow version of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus, about six months after these phones first went on sale.
What iPhone 15 models will be available in pink?
From what we’ve heard so far, the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus may be available in pink, while the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max may not be available.
The 9to5Mac source mentioned above specifically referred to the pink models of the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, and while the other source only referred to the standard iPhone 15, we’d expect Apple to offer the standard and Plus models in the same shades, as it did with the iPhone 14 line.
If you’re looking at the iPhone 15 Pro or iPhone 15 Pro Max, chances are the closest you’ll get to pink is the deep red color that the Pro iPhones have been rumored to have.
What shade of pink would it be?

Saying there might be a pink iPhone 15 still leaves one insignificant question unanswered: What shade of pink will it be?
Fortunately, we have a potential answer to that, too. The original source of this claim (the one who spoke to 9to5Mac above) said it was precisely that Hex color #CE3B6Cwhich you can see above.
This would be a totally bright pink color, just right for the year of Barbie, and could be one of the more eye-catching color options any iPhone 15 model will be available in.
However, only one source has so far indicated a specific shade of pink, so we’ll take this with a pinch of salt, especially since the last pink iPhone Apple made — the pink iPhone 13 — was a much lighter and paler pink. .
Hopefully there’s a shadow leaked around that, but we won’t know for sure until Apple takes to the stage in Cupertino and unveils its upcoming phones — the iPhone 15 release date is rumored to be September 12th.
