Apple launched the iPhone 13 lineup last September, but the company just launched a brand new color for the iPhone 13. Now, you have six amazing colors to choose from, just like with the iPhone 12. Here's a brief look at all of the new colors, and a little advice on waht color you should choose.

Rich and lush

Apple has just introduced a brand new green color to the iPhone 13 lineup during the 'Peek Performance' event. This green is a deep, rich hue that is reminiscent of forest green. Fans of the Midnight Green iPhone 11 Pro should appreciate this new shade, and it's perfect for those who want the latest color for the best iPhone and are fans of green.

The green iPhone 13 is launching on March 18, 2022. You can pre-order it on March 11, 2022 at 5 a.m. PT.

Subtle beauty

Each year, Apple always introduces one brand new color to the lineup that hasn't been seen before. This year, with the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini, it's the pink. This soft petal pink color is reminiscent of the days when Apple still offered a rose gold option, but without that metallic sheen. This new pink adds a nice, feminine touch to the iPhone lineup, and it's great that it's also subtle so it's not too obnoxious.

Always feeling blue

Blue is another very popular color, and Apple knows this. That's why it has kept a nice, deep blue in the iPhone 13 lineup. This blue may look a tad lighter than last year's, but it's still a rich hue that remains fairly neutral. If you want something dark that isn't just black, then this blue is a good option.

Goes with everything

Black is just a color that you can't go wrong with. Black goes with pretty much everything, and it's impossible to clash with it. This Midnight hue is a nice inky black that even Batman would rock.

Shine like a star

Like Midnight, Starlight is another color that is quite neutral and can go well with anything. It's really just white and silver with a new name. If you prefer lighter colors while still being able to match with whatever you're wearing, then starlight is great.

Make a difference

PRODUCT(RED) has been a popular color for years. The red is always a bold and striking shade that is sure to turn heads whenever you're in the room. But there's also more to the PRODUCT(RED) lineup than just color — you're actually making a difference. Previously, any PRODUCT(RED) purchase would donate a small portion towards HIV/AIDS treatment. However, due to the pandemic, PRODUCT(RED) purchases right now will contribute to the Global Fund to combat COVID-19. This is temporary, of course, until the pandemic dies down, but regardless, your PRODUCT(RED) purchase goes towards a good cause. So you not only get a beautiful and daring phone color, but you're making a difference in someone's life.

What's your iPhone 13 color?

While all of the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini models have the same internals, what's on the outside is also an essential part of the buying process. After all, you don't want to be stuck with a color that you hate, right?

For most people, the Midnight iPhone 13 is probably the best way to go. After all, it's hard to go wrong with black, and it's always iconic and just goes with everything. If you don't like dark colors, Starlight is a good alternative that remains neutral.

Love green and want something that's colorful, but also a bit neutral? Then the new green color is fantastic. It just launched, and is a close match to the old Midnight Green iPhone 11 Pro. It's a rich and lush shade of green that makes you think of the rainforest.

If you're the type of person that wants to show off that you have the new iPhone, and you also don't mind a more feminine hue, then the pink iPhone is the one to pick this year. Thankfully, this shade of pink is subtle and not overly loud, so it's great for pretty much anyone. But if you want to go darker, then try the blue iPhone 13 — who doesn't like blue, really?

And if you want to have a color that is bold while also making a difference in the world, then go with PRODUCT(RED). It's a totally unique shade, and you'll be contributing to combat COVID-19.
