“Just look at that pretty pink hue, boys. You crave the newest color on the newest model of the world’s most popular phone but can’t stop thinking ‘pink is for girls’ or ‘pink is gay,'” Thomas Ricker writes for The Verge.
“You hate yourself for wanting it, and you’re scared; what will people think if you pre-order a bigger better rose gold iPhone 6S Plus to 3D Touch late at night?” Ricker writes. “How will the guys respond when they see you Apple Pay a round of beers with it at the ballpark?”
Ricker writes, “Cautiously you extend a leg, plié, and dip your pointed toe into the hostile waters of Twitter to find out lol.”
Is it gay to get the rose gold iPhone ?? Lol

MacDailyNews Take: We’re not touching that question with a ten-inch, uh… ten-foot pole. 😉
For the record, the heterosexual males here at MacDailyNews have had gold iPhones previously (iPhone 5s) which were chosen as much for the looks as for the resale value. We currently have iPhone 6 Plus models in Space Gray and have pre-ordered our iPhone 6s Plus models in Space Gray because, after the year spent with the 5s units, we found we prefer the classic black face for iPhone vs. the white face (found on the gold, rose gold, and silver models) which we feel competes a bit too much with the display. If Apple offered iPhones with black faces in other colors, we’d have a decision to make. For us, it’s all about the iPhone’s face, which we want to disappear not gleam, so the Space Gray models are our only option.
