In case you haven’t heard, Apple has a new iPhone coming out really soon. The leaks have been pouring out, and now there’s one more: Apple is adding a second shade of black to the line up.

A leak from Mac Otakara suggests Apple will be adding a ‘Space Black’ to complement the more common ‘Space Grey’ Apple has used on various products. It won’t be replacing Space Grey, but will compliment it instead.

More than just a deeper shade, this would be Apple’s first metal iPhone to not use a soft finish. Instead it will use a metal gloss reminiscent of Apple’s Mac Pro (AKA, ‘the trash can’).

It seems a bit odd that Apple would have two different dark shades in it’s line-up, but a glossy metal finish would at least be a nice change of pace after so many competitors have adopted its overall color scheme.
