Wondering which color is right for your new iPhone 14?
With the official unveiling of iPhone 14 at the September 7 Apple event, the speculation over its colors has now come to an end. The iPhone 14 variants come in a variety of different colors ranging from some well-known classics to brand-new hues for both families. There are different color options for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro lines. Three of the five colors that are offered for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus are brand-new hues. Except for PRODUCT(RED), which is now brighter, Apple elected to provide a slightly more subdued color palette this year even though prior normal iPhone lineup color options tended to be bolder and brighter. The five color options for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus are:
• Purple (brand new)
Midnight and Starlight are the same as in the iPhone 13 models. The PRODUCT(RED) is brighter with more saturation. The Blue of iPhone 14 is more subtle and lighter than the previous versions and is more towards the sky blue than the warm turquoise. Rumors had pointed to a purple option, and lo and behold, that's exactly what Apple added for both the standard iPhone 14 and the Pro models. Purple replaces the Pink but is similar in the ways it is also candyfloss-like subtle and light in shade.
Green has been discontinued and is not available in the new lineup. Similarly, there are no White and Black options in the iPhone 14 models.
Midnight with its hint of navy blue has replaced the Black as the darkest color available for the model but it should not be confused with the previous Black, Space Gray or Graphite as it was an entirely new color introduced with the iPhone 13 lineup.
The White was replaced with Starlight, which features aluminum edges, with the launch of iPhone 13. This color is similar to iPhone 12 White but is relatively a warmer shade leaning more towards pearl or cream with the edges containing a hint of gold to the give the whole phone a warmer look. This is the closest variant to White. Starlight is similar to the Silver hue of the iPhone 14 Pro, but it has softer, matte aluminum edges and a warmer, almost champagne tone.
Confused About Which Color to Buy?
There are multiple factors to consider when deciding on which color is just right for you. If you want a new shade in your iPhone, Blue and Purple are the options for you. The Purple gives you an edge making your device more noticeable indicating that you have the latest generation iPhone. And if you want to go with the colors that age better and are continuing from previous models you may go for the neutral and monochrome shades such as Midnight and Starlight.
If you use your iPhone with a case, you should take that into consideration while choosing the color. You may choose neutral colors like Midnight and Starlight and pair it with more colorful cases or you may choose more striking colors like Purple and complement it with neutral case.

You can decide on which color you want to carry depending on how often you replace your phone. If you upgrade your phone more often you may choose the new colors but if you carry the same device for many years, one may choose more neutral colors.
Customers who own various Apple products might also wish to get an iPhone in a color that matches their other products. For instance, the Purple iPhone 14 will go best with a Purple iPad Air or Purple iPad mini. If you already own a Space Gray MacBook Pro, a Midnight iPhone 14 is probably the greatest accessory. The Pink 24-inch iMac best complements the PRODUCT(RED) iPhone 14, and if you have a Starlight Apple Watch, it will obviously match the Starlight iPhone 14. So, you can choose your new iPhone in the color which will make whole family of Apple products you own complement each other.
