    The rose gold finish is more rose gold than pink. In person, it looks almost like a new penny but not as brown. It's a great color. Idc what some random stranger thinks about me. That being said, I also bought the rose gold watch and love it. I can post a pic that's very close to how it looks in person if anyone is interested. But to my eye it's definitely not the pink watch/iPhone. It really doesn't look pink at all to my eye. Which tbh is a little disappointing because I think a hot pink iPhone would be very punk rock and awesome. Lol.
    I absolutely agree about not caring what anyone else thinks. And if the Rose Gold looked like a new penny I'd be 100% on board. But I have to ask what you mean when you refer to having seen it in person. I assume you haven't seen the phone in person, right? I know that the Rose Gold watch has an almost copper look, but those at the keynote said the phone does not match this. My friend got her Rose Gold matching dock for the phone and it's pink. Nothing near the copperish color of the watch unfortunately.

    I think there's a rose gold aluminum sport watch that was released. Maybe that one is the same color as the phone.

    First thought....get what YOU like.
    Second thought....the fact that you would ask the question tells me you're not quite comfortable in your own skin yet to tell the world "scr*w you" and be an individualist. That's not a criticism, it's an observation. Example....Today I do exactly what i want to do.... I cut my signature long red mane of hair down to a super short boy cut. Years ago I wouldn't have dared, it identified me. I didn't ask anyone, I was simply ready for a bold change. Now I have "short hair/don't care" and I LOVE IT.
    Third thought.....I'm going to say that the rose gold color is perfect for a man who likes soft pastel colours and doesn't identify with traditionally masculine colours.
    IMO Harrison Ford can pull off a rose gold iPhone. Sean Connery, Alan Rickman, Hugh Laurie because they wouldn't CARE......Ben Afleck......not so much......he'd ask Matt Damon....
    It's the attitude that matters.

    By the way I just got the lightning dock in the mail. The colour is not a stark pink, it's a soft muted pastel that reminds me of pink champagne or Beringer white Zinfandel.

    I don't like the look of the pink iPhone at all. I prefer the gold. the good news is, I can get the one I want. I have had people ridicule me over my choice. I honestly don't care what they think.

    Get whichever one you like the most. It's what I did and I don't regret my decision.
    Good call. I usually have a Space Gray aka black phone. For the 6S I decided to try something different: GOLD. I'm excited about it. I think that switching it up is a great idea. The Rose Gold, while not for me, looks great!

    I'm pretty upset that it isn't actually rose gold as the name suggests, it's pink. I love rose gold and was looking forward to the rumored release for awhile now. Took a look at the watch in store, and it is clearly pink.
    Rose gold IS pink...regardless of what product it is on. The nature of the color...

    Question about the dock, I know with the standard/plastic dock people had an issue with it not being weighed so they had to hold it when they took their phone off of it. Does this dock have the same issue? Cause I believe It is aluminum now so it should be heavier..Would you mind, if it isn't too much trouble, uploading a video of putting a phone on and off of the dock?

    I am not arguing that Rose Gold has a pink tint to it, but the Rose Gold 6s is not the same color as Rose Gold normally is. I do not know if you own anything that is Rose Gold (I own 2 watches and a wedding band - all of which are stainless steel) and the 6s has a much pinker tone to it that actual Rose Gold does.

    Wife only owns rose gold or white gold jewelry, so yes, we have plenty of examples around the house...rose gold isn't a singular hue, it has a spectrum of different hues within the same "color" (like saying "blue"...we all know that blue has an enormous spectrum of range). My wife has a bracelet that is VERY pink...and one the opposite end of the spectrum, a necklace that is closer to gold than pink. There is no singular definition of the color since it has a range. It is perfectly "normal" rose gold...it just may not be the hue you prefer.

    When you say that the phone isn't "actually" rose gold...that is just flat out wrong.

    I am unsure why you are so concerned with my statement regarding the color of rose gold, especially considering I was just giving my opinion regarding the color of the new 6s. It is very pink in my opinion unlike much of the rose gold items that I have seen and own.

    Considering the fact that I really do not need to be lectured on the spectrum of hues within a color, do me a favor and do not quote any future posts that I might make. Thank you.

    Your comment reads as follows (in case you've forgotten since you posted it):

    I'm pretty upset that it isn't actually rose gold as the name suggests, it's pink. I love rose gold and was looking forward to the rumored release for awhile now. Took a look at the watch in store, and it is clearly pink.
    ...you specifically say "it isn't actually rose gold, as the name suggests"...which is wrong. That is why I retorted to your post. If you said "To me, it's too pink" or "in my opinion, this isn't actually rose gold", you wouldn't have heard a word from me...but your post was not reflective of that, and I replied as such. Your post essentially says Apple "claims" it's rose gold, but it actually isn't...but that couldn't be further from the truth.

    Also, to clarify, just because you don't want to hear it doesn't mean it won't happen. The beauty of a forum is that there is no prerequisite that you enjoy or WANT to see my posts for me to post them, so if you don't want to have further discussions about your own words, use the ignore feature...

    Why the personal shots? My comments were relevant to the subject matter...and then you decided to huff and puff because you didn't have the wherewithal to have some dialogue about it. I understand if you want to throw in the towel early on a debate, but there is no reason to make it personal at all...lol.

    Is the dock more stable than the plastic dock? Can you just pull your phone off without holding down the dock?

    I'm sorry I didn't do that. But I will tomorrow. My impression is no. It feels like you'll have to hold down the dock.

    I don't think it's too pink.
    I really don't think it's very pink at all. I have a rose gold Apple Watch Sport. I'd call it peach more than I would pink. There's too much orange in the base color to call it pink. The pinkishness just comes from the way light hits it.

    I think just like with yellow gold, lighting will absolutely have a profound effect on the hue. And while at times it may look even 'copperish', the pink is most certainly going to appear as well.
