Apple makes a $17,000 Apple Watch — why not a luxury iPhone too?

You can buy an iPhone 6 from Apple anodized with matte gold coloring. It's a nice enough phone, but it's no luxury.

That gold iPhone costs no more than one in silver or space gray, and it does nothing else different. Apple also makes a solid gold Apple Watch. It costs much more than a standard aluminum or steel Apple Watch. The Apple Watch Edition has a nicer buying experience and improved customer support (not that Apple's ever been lacking in that department). But even at up to $17,000 it too does nothing that a $350 Apple Watch Sport doesn't do.

Apple's lack of gold iPhone 5s on launch day drives man to spend $1500. Epic deal, or fail?

Kevin Michaluk, who's no stranger to either Apple launch events in Miami, or throwing hundreds of dollars at apps or thousands of dollars at phones, decided in the spur of a moment to combine all of these things together and pay $1500 for a gold iPhone 5s. Why? Because Apple had critically low stock at every location we've been able to find out about. The Miami Apple store, for example, had 3.

Still, never one to waste an opportunity to turn water into wine, the Mobile Nations video crew combed through their footage from the launch event this morning and edited it into another adventure of mobile madness for all of us to enjoy. So here it is, the tall tale of a boy, his lust for golden gadgets, and his epic, financially disastrous, victory!

'Golden gate': Why was the iPhone 5s launch day plagued by a critical lack of gold?

Apple launched the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s today and while the pop-art inspired iPhone 5c - thanks to it being an easier-to-manufacture branch of last year's iPhone 5 with an even easier-to-manufacture polycarbonate shell - was, by all accounts, in plentiful supply despite pre-orders starting a week ago, the higher-end iPhone 5s was not. Especially the gold version. My Apple Store had 7 and no 16GB models. Other stores we've heard about had 2 to 10. We haven't heard of non-Apple retailers having many, if any gold stock either. By any measure, they were incredibly, ludicrously constrained. And the reaction by die-hard, line-up-overnighter customers has been loud.

Purported gold iPhone 5S shell leaks out with a taste of Champagne

We've talked a lot about the rumored gold iPhone 5s in recent days, but a new leaked image out of Japan (by way of claims to show the shell of the phone in all its glory.
