Two new colors of the iPhone 13 line were recently introduced by Apple: Alpine Green for the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max, and Green for the iPhone 13 and 13 mini. In the middle of a six-month-old iPhone’s lifecycle, the green iPhones re-ignite interest in a fresh new look. Last year, Apple did the same thing, releasing a purple version of the iPhone 12 to stores in April of 2021.
It’s clear that the two greens aren’t the same. Apple’s new green iPhone 13 and mini are a rich shade of forest green with a high gloss finish that demands careful handling because it is highly reflective and readily shows fingerprints. The matte finish on the Alpine Green iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max makes them more resistant to fingerprints.
When viewed in various lighting conditions, the colors appear to shift. The iPhone 13 can go from a dull almost-black to a rich green that really draws you in, whereas the iPhone Pro is more consistent overall.
Although there were green versions of the iPhone 12 and 11, they were very pale pastel greens. The green color of the Samsung Galaxy S22 lineup this year resembles a light blue in certain lighting conditions. Colors are more vibrant on Apple’s new iPhone 13.
Apple’s $59 Silicone Case in Eucalyptus, a true green, is the greenest of the bunch. Using a colored case allows you to easily change the look of your phone while protecting it at the same time.
For a long time, people have been using multicolored phones. Motorola’s pink Razr, which was released in the fall of 2005, made a year-old phone look and feel brand new again. The LG Chocolate became a Verizon best-seller in black, green, pink, red, and white in August 2006.
Apple, too, has a long history of adoration for devices with multiple hues. An antidote to decades of “beige boxes,” Apple’s 1998 Bondi Blue iMac was a big deal at launch. When Apple released the iPhone 5c in 2013, it was the first model to come in a rainbow of colours.
