Apple iPhone 5S Leaks: Latest Pics Of A Gold iPhone Are VERY Convincing (PICTURES)

If the rumours are to be believed we're less than three weeks from the introduction of the next iPhone. Everything we've heard is pointing to a September 10 event at which Apple will introduce a low-cost iPhone 5C, and an upgraded iPhone 5S that will come in white, black and gold.

At first we found that hard to believe - the idea of a gold iPhone reminded us more of the ultra-bling monstrosities like the one above, and not something Apple would make.

But now we've seen some very convincing leaks of the device - and we have to admit, it looks very swish. The pictures released by AppAdvice and Ascii show a gold version that isn't quite as bright and shiny as you'd fear. In fact the phone looks very tasteful, with a muted gold back that seems like a natural fit for the iPhone, and a nice change of pace in terms of design.

Of course nothing is confirmed - not even the event itself. But if this really is a hint at what's to come, count us excited...
