TechCrunch reports that the iPhone 5S will come in a shade of gold. Rumours of the legendary golden iPhone have been cropping up for a while now, with leaked components and analyst expectations pointing toward an aureate mobile.
While Apple is famed for its stark, minimalist product design, this wouldn't be the first time that its crafted a gilded gadget -- the first iPod mini came in gold, but the colour was discontinued after just one year.
Apple is tipped to be revealing its new smart phones on September 10, when we might also get a look at the rumoured cheap, plastic iPhone 5C.
Apple's past 'S' models have featured the same shell as the core model, though with different features and slightly different tech specs. Once again, it seems that will be the case for the 5S.
The iPhone 5S isn't expected to differentiate itself from the iPhone 5 too drastically, though a better camera and slightly faster processor will surely be part of the package.
One analyst has claimed Apple could use the iPhone 5S to increase its margin for iPhones as a result of falling profitability.
One thing is for sure, with the release of such super handsets as the Samsung Galaxy S4, Sony Xperia Z and HTC One, the next iPhone will have to seriously up its game.

iPhone 5S which is rumored to be a "budget iPhone" with plastic casing in an effort by Apple to break into emerging markets.
It is also expected to have a fingerprint scanner, a rumour which has been circulating online since a developer found plans for biometric scanning in a folder in the iOS7 beta, the operating system the new handset will carry.
It is also expected to have a significantly improved display that carry a 12 megapixel camera and dual LED flash.
"Some customers value large screen size, others value other factors such as resolution, colour quality, white balance, brightness, reflectivity, screen longevity, power consumption, portability, compatibility with apps and many things,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said. “Our competitors had made some significant trade-offs in many of these areas in order to ship a larger display. We would not ship a larger display iPhone while these trade-offs exist."
