With a 50 – 50 or so proven track record when it comes to recent iPhone rumors and gossip, Japanese tech blog Macotakara strikes again, wildly claiming Apple may have plans to add a “Jet White” paint job to the existing iDevice palette.

No, not for next year’s likely borderless, almost certainly OLED screen-sporting iPhone 8, and obviously, not for 2017’s SE release either. Instead, Apple could raise the number of iPhone 7 and 7 Plus colors available from five to six as it goes, which doesn’t exactly sound like the M.O. of the conservative Cupertino-based tech behemoth.

Besides, a “Jet White” marketing label is a tad nonsensical, given the adjective “jet-black”, meaning as dark a black as possible, derives from a coal-preceding type of lignite called jet that’s, well, black.

Of course, the Asian publication’s unnamed “supplier” sources might be talking about a jet black-similar milky white shade, but even Macotakara warns “this information may be unreliable” in closing its very succinct speculative report.

Keep in mind that 2011’s iPhone 4s was the last model entirely coated in white, followed by a couple of white-and-silver generations, then a 2014 transition to an all-silver iPhone 6.
