Apple will make its forthcoming iPhone 8 available in just three colours, as it looks to tighten up a range which has become available in a string of different designs in recent years.
The new device will be sold in black, silver and gold according to analyst Ming Chi Kuo, known for getting his predictions about Apple spot on.
Kuo says the new iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus will also only be available in the same three colours. It means a much touted mirrored version of the iPhone 8 will not be released.
Apple’s current range comes in rose gold, gold, black, jet black and silver, with a Product Red edition of the iPhone 7 also on sale.
In a separate development, Kuo also says that Apple will launch the iPhone 8, iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus will launch at the same time in September, with each phone coming with fast–charging smarts along the same lines of Apple’s iPad Pro.
Kuo claims that with mass production due to start fully in September, constraints on supply may not be as bad as first feared.
