According to Macotakara, new colors will be one of the more visible features of Apple’s next-generation iPhone models. According to a new report from the Japanese website, Apple’s iPhone 5 successor, already dubbed by some as the “iPhone 5S,” will come in three additional colors on top of the already existing black/slate and white/silver designs found on the iPhone 5.

It seems that it will have gossiped if the 5-color lineup of low-priced edition iPhone is carried out until now, but iPhone 5S may be 3 colors added to 2 colors of iPhone 5 1 color somehow. However, the informed sources did not tell about the kind of detailed color.

The site also claims that Apple’s already-rumored cheaper iPhone will come in five colors, but the report does not specify if this is five colors in addition to the black and white models or including the black and white options. Multiple analyst reports have previously claimed that Apple’s next iPhones will likely come in new colors.

Amazon Cloud Player app for iPhone finally lands in App Store

Almost a year after first debuting its cloud-based music service, Amazon released an iPhone version of the app today that provides access to most of the features offered in the Android and desktop versions. Not surprisingly, the ability to buy music from directly within the app is missing. Otherwise, you will be able to get access to all the music stored in your Amazon Cloud Drive and features such as creating and editing playlists, downloading for offline listening, and streaming over Bluetooth.

As noted in Amazon’s full press release below, on top of the automatic free 5GB of storage, it will offer a launch promotion providing “those who purchase any storage plan will receive unlimited space for MP3 and AAC (.m4a) music files at no additional cost.”

SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jun. 12, 2012– (NASDAQ:AMZN) – Amazon.com, Inc. today announced its Amazon Cloud Player App for iPhone and iPod touch is now available on the App Store. The app allows customers to stream or download music stored in Cloud Player to their iPhone or iPod touch, play music that is already stored on their device, and manage or create playlists.

Customers using the Amazon Cloud Player App can stream, download, and manage their music in the cloud, eliminating the need to download files before playing them.

More photos of purported next iPhone surface, this time in white with suspect font

Update: We have what appear to be the real deal right here

Following our report from this morning on what may be the new iPhone back plate, MacRumors published three new images that it received from another parts supplier. You will obviously note that the “iPhone” font on this one looks much different from ours and the joints appear to be slightly…disjointed.

We are not exactly sure what is happening here, but this is interesting timing. And, we have more coming in 3…2…1…
