With the conclusion of its annual Wanderlust Event, Apple has finally laid to rest long months of rumors and speculations over its iPhone 15 lineup. As expected, its flagship ‘Pro’ models for 2023 are set a class apart in terms of raw power as well as new ‘Titanium’ design and aesthetics.
Here’s a closer look at the different colors that the new iPhone 15 Pro model is available in, and determine the true color and hue of the ‘Natural Titanium’ variant.
iPhone 15 Pro colors
Apple has opted for Grade 5 Titanium as the material design on the latest iPhone 15 Pro models. Known for its strength-to-weight ratio, the Titanium alloy used on iPhone 15 Pro not only makes it much more durable and lightweight but also gives the device an elegant ‘brush’ texture that is the hallmark of all Titanium-based products.
Unlike the base iPhone 15 model which comes in five colors, the flagship Titanium-based iPhone 15 Pro is available in four colors – Black Titanium, White Titanium, Blue Titanium, and Natural Titanium. Each of these colors gives the iPhone 15 Pro a unique personality and style.
Black is the quintessential color that effuses class and style (more so with Titanium), a classic go-to that matches all manners of clothing and accessories.
White is the iconic iPhone color, one that exudes grace and simplicity while simultaneously being the classic choice that remains to this day unmistakably Apple.
Bold and beautifully distinguished, Blue is perfect for those who prefer a little more depth and color on their iPhones. Though it is a bit more diffused than last year’s Deep Purple color, Blue Titanium is every bit as captivating as the rest.
Natural Titanium is where Apple throws in an element of surprise. Is it more silver, or gold, perhaps a bit of gray? Let’s take a deeper look at Natural Titanium to determine its exact color and hue.
What color is Natural Titanium exactly?
Unlike the fairly obvious color labels of Black, White, and Blue, the Natural Titanium variant is turning out to be a mystery for potential buyers. Some consider the color of Natural Titanium closer to the Gold of the iPhone 14 Pro, while others have described it as earthy with a space-gray hue.
In Apple’s words, “Natural Titanium celebrates (Titanium’s) raw metallic nature.” Even though the statement is brief, the true answer is, in fact, buried within the ‘raw metallic’ aspect of the description itself.
Titanium naturally has a silver-gray platinum color, which you see on most high-end products that use titanium, such as spacecraft, rovers, ships, etc.
For its iPhone 15 Pro model, Apple is using Grade 5 Titanium, which is an alloy that mixes other components like aluminum and vanadium, and that gives it a natural grayish hue that is deeper than both silver and gold. It is also what you see on the Apple Watch Ultra, which comes in what’s best described as silver only.
In certain lighting conditions, the Natural Titanium color of the iPhone 15 Pro may give off a pale hue of gold. But by the looks of it, corroborated by the description of the material itself, the Natural Titanium color of the iPhone 15 Pro can be best described as grayish-silver. We believe this to be what Apple means by Titanium’s ‘raw metallic nature.’
Let’s take a look at a few commonly asked questions about the colors of the iPhone 15 Pro model.
Is there no gold iPhone 15 Pro this year?
Unfortunately, there is no gold iPhone 15 this year. Apple often releases an extra color variant for its Pro models mid-way through the annual cycle. So keep your fingers crossed for a Gold colored iPhone 15 Pro model down the line.
Is natural titanium closer to silver or gold?
Natural Titanium is closer to silver than it is to gold.
Apple has picked its range of colors for the iPhone 15 Pro to appeal as broadly to the masses as possible while still giving it distinct properties that make it feel as though there’s a variant that is truly yours. Which one is your favorite?
