Apple reminds us that spring is around the corner with a new color for iPhone 14 and 14 Plus: yellow. As has been the case for the past few years, Apple dropped a new color for the iPhone in March.

The new yellow iPhone 14 and 14 Plus will be available to preorder Friday. Most people are likely tono matter which color the phone is. If that’s you, Apple also launched a , too.
