Apple launched the iPhone 14 series in September last year and has now announced the availability of iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus models in a new colour variant. Both models are now available in yellow, joining the five original colours. The company did not introduce any other updates or modifications to the iPhone 14 lineup. The high-end iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max devices have not been updated with any new colour variants either. Apple introduced new colour variants to the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro series a year ago, and the year before that it added a new colour option to the iPhone 12 lineup. There were also multiple reports about Apple launching this new colour for the iPhone 14 non-Pro models.
