Chinese Mobile Dealer Teases Possible 'Red' Color Option for iPhone 7

Chinese phone dealer and ecommerce site Taobao has posted a teasing picture to a Weibo account that suggests a red color option could be appearing imminently for the iPhone 7 and/or iPhone 7 Plus.

As spotted by French tech blog igen.fr, the image very clearly plays on the possibility, with red dots like marching ants outlining a blank handset among a throng of iPhone 7 Plus devices and the word "Ready?" underneath with the letters r, e, and d highlighted in red.


Japanese blog Mac Otakara has claimed Apple will host a March event to debut its new iPad Pro lineup, an iPhone SE with 128GB storage, new Apple Watch bands, and a red color option for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. While an event now looks unlikely, it's possible the red color could appear alongside other new products when Apple's online store comes back up within the next couple of hours.

(Thanks, Anna!)

Why would anyone buy an iPhone mid-cycle? Makes no sense.

Current phone gets lost, stolen, cracked etc. if I'm Apple, I'd want to smooth out demand, production capacity, and sales volumes via a high-margin, mid-cycle "color" refresh.

1) Cheaper than on launch.
2) They're still really great.

I have have respect for the Product (RED) program, but was not referencing it here. I my comment was about Apple releasing new products were the major change in aesthetic not technological, Apple move more towards becoming a fashion brand. I purposely didn't spell it RED, as is how a charity styles their brand.

You missed the point of my quoting you.

The quote is:

"Can't innovate anymore, my ass"

and not

"Can't involved my ass"

Not being a pedant, was supposed to be tongue-in-cheek. ;)
