Apple Inc has launched the two special edition iPhones — Red iPhone 7 and Red iPhone 7 Plus — as part of the company’s collaboration with RED, to raise money for HIV/AIDS programmes in sub-Saharan Africa. The Red iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be available through online channels and retail stores in over 40 countries and regions starting March 24.
Apple on Tuesday not only launched a new red colour variant of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus but also put on offer increased storage variants of the iPhone SE at the same price. The company also launched a new iPad along with a new video editing tool.
The limited edition Red iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have a vibrant red aluminium finish. In India, the new limited edition Red iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be available in 128GB and 256GB models starting at Rs 82,000 from Apple authorised resellers.
However, there is no official confirmation on the pricing from Apple on the price in India of the other red iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus variants.
“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.”
“Apple is the world’s largest corporate donor to the Global Fund, contributing more than $130 million as part of its partnership with (RED),” said Deborah Dugan, (RED)’s CEO.
Apple has also doubled the storage capacities on the two iPhone SE variants – from 16GB and 64GB, to 32GB and 128GB respectively while retaining their price tags in the US, with prices starting at Rs. 27,200 (MRP).
