Apple's next iPhone to come in a rainbow of colours?

Well, five colours. Including black and white. But that's three more than you get now

Rumours have been swirling that Apple is set to launch a budget iPhone alongside the iPhone 5S (or iPhone 6, whatever it ends up being called) – and Japanese Apple blog Macotakara has added its voice to the mix, claiming that "reliable sources" have revealed that the much-rumoured budget iPhone will come in five different colours.

That backs up earlier claims from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo that Apple's preparing a cut-price iPhone in six different colours – which could feature a plastic and fibreglass build, as seen in these renders.

Macotakara's source also claims that the budget iPhone is set to arrive in July or August – which would suggest that the handset's set to be unveiled at the Apple WWDC in June. So, which colour will you be picking?
