Another iPhone 14 leak shows purple reigns this year

We already suspected that the new Apple iPhone 14 could be released in a purple hue, thanks to previous leaks. Now, a leak on Chinese website Weibo shows what appears to be the upcoming iPhone 14 Pro in an all-new purple that suggests deeper attention to material design.

The new Sleepy Afternoon leaker rumor shows five colors of what the Apple iPhone 14 Pro could be, including silver, graphite and gold versions that would be familiar in stores today. There is also a darker blue color as well as the increasingly ubiquitous purple. A second view only shows the first three colors with another photo of the purple model.

In subsequent images, the purple appears first dark and saturated, then lighter and more metallic. Phone manufacturers will use layers of materials on the back of a phone to create this shimmering effect that appears to change as it reflects light differently. Current iPhones use similar materials, depending on the model and color. You can see the difference between the layering effects in our hands-on with the green Apple iPhone 13 this year.
