Apple has delivered a pink iPhone 13 to confirm the rumors that were false earlier in the year.
It was only a matter of time before the great algorithm of the sky brought millennials together as capitalist matrimony. The iPhone 13 lineup has arrived. The virtual Apple announcement, which featured the iPhone 13, 13 Pro, and 13 Pro Max, as well as the Apple Watch 7 (and new iPads), has sparked excitement about the phones’ increased storage options (up to 1TB). Additional battery life, camera upgrade, and many other features. The new colors are what I am most excited about — particularly the pink iPhone 13 that is the embodiment of all the internet’s hopes and dreams.
An Instagram post started the rumors about the bubblegum pink iPhone 13. Ali Sayed Ali is an artist and Instagrammer who specializes in 3D models of iPhones and renders. In February, Ali posted a photo showing a very pink iPhone with what appears to be pink Apple accessories ( AirPods and AirPods max) and an iPhone case. “Should these colors be more frequently seen?” The caption read.
On May 5, a Twitter account named Peng phones caused a frenzy by tweeting the same photo, without sourcing it. It called it a “Rose Pink iPhone 13 Pro max render, and teased a December 2021 launch date for the color option. This account also sent subsequent tweets, mentioning the November 2021 release of Pink, Rose Pink, and Rosegold Pink iPhones. This tweet received over 40,000 views and more than 33,000 retweets. It caused searches for the pink iPhone 13 to spike. Copyright violations led to the photo being removed from the tweet.
Many of the Twitter reactions were skeptical.
Many Twitter users expressed hope or at least a capitulation towards capitalism that could be interpreted as buying intent. “One person tweeted that Capitalism is so much more attractive than the pink iPhone. A second person tweeted, “Manifest between two Candle Emojis with an Image not only of a pink iPhone 13but also a pink Nintendo Switch.
The rumor is more of an iPhone wishlist item since the original image creator says that she made it for fun. We (and the aesthetic lovers of social media), still wondered if it was possible. Is Apple really going to make the pink iPhone a reality? It turns out that yes. Below are the official iPhone 13 colors.

It was difficult to verify the authenticity of the alleged iPhone 13 release dates ( here is the official iPhone 13 launch date) or the color names that Peng Phones tweeted. The tweets were not originated by or corroborated by any notable Apple-leaks, especially since the photo was fan art. The Twitter account was correct in stating that Apple would announce new colors for its iPhone 13 Mini and 13 Pro phones, as opposed to the 13 Pro and Pro Max. It’s not surprising, as Apple changed the colors of its iPhone 12 line last year.
Are there any chances of a pink iPhone 13 being released in 2021? They were not terrible. They weren’t terrible. The iPhone 5C was released in 2013. It was also available in pink. The 2018 iPhone XR was available in coral. In 2015, the iPhone 6S was available in rose gold. Pink is a very popular color in tech since. Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S21 model has been released in Phantom Violet and Phantom Pink versions. These models have a metallic sheen that is higher than the iPhone 13.
Apple also released a new color option for the iPhone 12 this spring. This is another throwback to the aesthetic crowd. Apple’s April event also featured a redesigned iMac. It was available in a variety of throwback colors to match its rainbow logo. You’ve probably guessed that pink is one of the iMac colors.
Apple tends to swap one iPhone color generation after generation. The rest of the colors remain consistent. It was possible for a candy-colored pop to pink to replace the iPhone 12’s dark blue or mint green.
Apple did indeed deliver on our requests for a pink iPhone 13 (the color’s name is actually just “pink”) but the hue isn’t as striking as the original Instagram rendering. Would you call it bubblegum pink or? No, based on Apple’s marketing images. CNET’s Patrick Holland claims that the pink color is so pale that it almost appears white under certain lighting conditions. Is it millennial pink? Maybe. However, it’s impossible to argue that the pink iPhone versions didn’t actually happen, even though fan art is much prettier. If you are still unhappy with the pastel hue, you can always buy a pink case.
