Surprise: The iPhone 14 and 14 Plus Now Come in Yellow

Spring means a new iPhone color.

Yellow iPhone 14 and 14 Plus

Just like last year when Apple surprise dropped the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro in green, the company today announced a new yellow-colored iPhone 14 and 14 Plus.

The new shade is the first iPhone since the iPhone 11 to come in yellow. Before that, the iPhone XR and iPhone 5C also came in the color.

Here it is in all of its yellow glory:

Spring Sales Boost

The yellow iPhone 14 and 14 Plus carry on Apple’s tradition of releasing new colors for its iPhones in the spring to boost sales. In 2022, the spring color was green for the iPhone 13 and Alpine Green for the iPhone 13 Pro and in 2021, the iPhone 12 came out in purple.

It’s a smart strategy to give iPhones a mid-cycle push as new high-end Android phones like the Galaxy S23 Ultra and OnePlus 11 are announced.
