The red iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus that everybody’s been waiting for is finally here. Apple has just released the iPhone (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in a beautifully vibrant, yet somehow subtle, aluminium finish. The special edition phone marks 10 years of association between Apple Inc. and (RED).
Apple CEO Tim Cook launched the stunning smartphones with this:
“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. 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.”
(RED) CEO Deborah Dugan following it up with a statement:
“Apple is the world’s largest corporate donor to the Global Fund, contributing more than $130 million as part of its partnership with (RED). Combining the global reach of the world’s most loved smartphone with our efforts to provide access to life-saving ARV medication in sub-Saharan Africa, customers now have a remarkable opportunity to make a difference and contribute to the Global Fund through the purchase of this new beautiful (PRODUCT)RED iPhone.”
The phones will be available in 128GB and 256GB variants only, and the base model starts at $749 in the United States. It will be sold on Apple’s website and Apple Stores, as well as authorized resellers and a few select carriers, where pricing may vary.
The good news is that the Special Edition iPhones will both be available worldwide starting this Friday, March 24, 2017, in the following countries:
Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, the UK and United Arab Emirates.
Unfortunately, eager buyers in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, India, Turkey and other countries will have to wait until April for the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models to be available.
The new phones are now part of the existing (PRODUCT)RED range of Apple products, which includes all iPods, Beats Solo 3 wireless earphones, the Beats Pill+ portable speakers, the iPhone 7 Smart Battery Case and a whole range of iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch accessories.
Apple also noted that the iPhone SE 32GB and 128GB models are coming out on the same day – March 24 – in the United States, and are expected to retail from $399 and up.
