In anticipation of the green iPhone 13 being released by Apple next week, a fresh hands-on video of the device has been leaked.
As reported on Twitter:
Tuesday, during the company’s March presentation, the iPhone 13 and 13 Pro received two additional tones of green. The second colour is named Alpine green, and it looks to be a shade lighter than the green of the iPhone 13.
Apple has released a statement:
Alpine green and green were added to the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 colour options today by Apple. All of Apple’s iPhone 13 models include a Ceramic Shield front shell that makes them even more robust and incorporates a new A15 Bionic processor, an improved 5G experience, cutting-edge camera systems, and a massive increase in battery life. Super Retina XDR displays are also available on the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini, while the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max have a brilliant Super Retina XDR display with ProMotion, which has an adaptable refresh rate from 10Hz to 120Hz. Pre-orders for the new alpine green iPhone 13 Pro and green iPhone 13 go live on March 11 and the devices will be available for purchase on March 18 beginning the following Friday.
Bob Borchers, Apple’s vice president of global product marketing, stated “The new alpine green and green finishes, which join the vast variety of attractive hues on the iPhone 13 lineup, are sure to delight fans of the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13. We’re excited for customers to take advantage of all the iPhone 13 lineup has to offer, including unmatched performance with A15 Bionic, our best camera systems, massive improvements in battery life for everyday needs, fast 5G, incredible durability, and so much more. These new colours give customers even more options when choosing their iPhone.”
While the new green hues have been well received so far, it begs the question: why can’t we have all of the iPhone colours at launch instead of releasing them in stages?
