Rose gold used to be a standout color among Apple’s MacBook lineup. But can you still find it available in 2022? Here’s what you need to know.
Apple sells its MacBook lineup in a number of different colors — but is rose gold one of the options available to you? Laptop colors can be hit or miss depending on who makes it. Some companies offer a single color for their laptops and call it a day there. Others take a bit more interest and offer their laptop in a few different shades.
Such is the case with Apple. Apple has always placed emphasis on colors, something that’s become even more apparent in recent years. This increased focus was recently seen with the launch of the company’s 2021 iMac, thanks to the variety of vibrant colors that the all-in-one desktop can be purchased in. You’ll also find numerous color options for the iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch — allowing shoppers to get an Apple device that matches their personal style.

However, things are slightly disappointing when it comes to the current MacBook models. In total, just three colors are available for the entire MacBook lineup. The 13, 14, and 16-inch MacBook Pro laptops are only available in space gray and silver. The MacBook Air can be purchased in space gray, silver, and gold. Unfortunately, there is no rose gold color to speak of. Regardless of which MacBook model/configuration you’re looking to buy, Apple doesn’t sell any of its current models in rose gold.
Apple Used To Sell A Rose Gold MacBook
Although Apple currently doesn’t sell a rose gold MacBook model, it used to. Right now, the 13-inch MacBook Air and Pro models are the smallest MacBooks available to buy. But Apple used to also sell a 12-inch MacBook and rose gold was one of the colors this small notebook could be purchased in. However, in late 2018, Apple discontinued the rose gold MacBook color, replacing it with a standard gold instead. Less than one year later after that, the 12-inch MacBook was discontinued altogether.
Will Rose Gold MacBooks Ever Come Back?
Considering Apple has previously sold a MacBook in rose gold, there remains the possibility that the color could make a return in the future. This is even more likely when considering the company’s increased focus on color choice in general. The rumor mill suggests that a redesigned MacBook Air launching in 2022 or 2023 will bring a host of colors similar to the 2021 iMac. It’s unclear if rose gold will be included in the new color palette, but we can certainly cross our fingers and hope.
