Apple Unveils Special Edition (PRODUCT)RED iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus

Apple today announced it is launching a special edition (PRODUCT)RED iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus on Friday, March 24.

PRODUCT(RED) models will be available in 128GB and 256GB storage capacities for the same $749/$849 and $869/$969 prices as the equivalent iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models in standard colors. The anodized aluminum's vibrant red finish is complemented by a white Apple logo and white front bezels.

Apple says the model is in recognition of more than 10 years of partnership between Apple and (RED), which it says gives customers a way to contribute to the Global Fund and "bring the world a step closer to an AIDS-free generation."
“Since we began working with (RED) 10 years ago, our customers have made a significant impact in fighting the spread of AIDS through the purchase of our products, from the original iPod nano (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition all the way to today's lineup of Beats products and accessories for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch," said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. "The introduction of this special edition iPhone in a gorgeous red finish is our biggest (PRODUCT)RED offering to date in celebration of our partnership with (RED), and we can’t wait to get it into customers' hands."
The special edition iPhone joins the current (PRODUCT)RED lineup, which is available to purchase year-round, including the full iPod line of products, Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones, Beats Pill+ Portable Speaker, the iPhone 7 Smart Battery Case, and a range of accessories for iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch.

The new (PRODUCT)RED iPhone will be available to order on Apple's website, at Apple Stores, and at select authorized resellers and carriers. Apple says the new model will begin shipping to customers by the end of March in the United States and more than 40 countries and regions around the world.

The other countries will include Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, UAE, and the UK. Brazil, Chile, Colombia, India, Turkey and other countries will follow in April.

Omg...this forum was named wrong. Please name it: Anti-Apple forum...because nowadays every topic is full of haters and complains.

Stop whining so much ...Jesus...Is just a red phone. it's not a big deal anyway.

Exactly, it's not a big deal. That's why everybody is complaining. We expect more from Apple, that's why we're fans.

But Apple has become a lazy company releasing half-assed products. We complain because we care. We do want a new Mac mini and Mac Pro, we want that beautiful standalone screen back, we want iCloud to "just work" and be updated regularly with innovative features that make the ecosystem come together, iWork to be more than an afterthought and so on...

It used to be a joy to use Apple products because of countless little details. But no more. They're innovating at a snails pace causing them to fall behind the competition. But they did manage to raise prices, release more dongles than ever and focus on watch bands, music deals and other nonsense.

For instance: why haven't they released new iOS features for that new iPad today to make it more than a glorified Youtube screen? I have an iPad Air 1, and see no reason to ever upgrade.

They will definitely not conquer the post-PC era with this lineup.
