The last two Apple devices to get the Colorware treatment were the 2010 MacBook Air and the iPad 2. We had hoped that the iPhone 5 would be next, but we will have to make do with the 4S instead. The new smartphone is not the failure that Android fans had hoped, as sales have been more than double that of the iPhone 4 over the same period last year.
Back then we were promised a white and black version, but for months there was only the darker option. Thankfully Apple has launched the iPhone 4S with the two color choices, but let’s face it there’re still limited. It does seem a shame that we have to rely on a third-party to give us different color options.

Now we cannot expect Apple to give us every color available, but they could at least offer the basics, such as red, blue, purple etc. Let’s face it; this is never going to happen, so if you want your iPhone 4S to be more individual than your friends, then you will have to pay for that privilege.
If you would like a go at designing your ideal iPhone 4S, then OSM tells us that you will have to pay a premium for the honor. You can purchase your customized 4S for $1,500 for the 16GB version or $1,700 for the 64GB model. Okay, so we know that this is a huge price to pay, but if you can spare that, then we say that it’s money well spent.
