Red-iPhone-7

There was a rumour toward the end of last year that an extra colour option was coming to the iPhone 7. A red colour option was rumoured to be added to the current line of the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus. This may be part of Apple’s (RED) initiative. A new report from trusted Japanese Blog Macotakara cites a Barclays analyst supporting this.

Apple this year marks the 10th anniversary of supporting (RED) in the fight to end AIDS. The money raised by (RED) funds programs that offer counselling, testing, prevention and, most crucially, the life-saving ARV medication that prevents the transmission of HIV from mothers to their unborn babies. Apple added a few more (RED) products last year like a (RED) iPhone 7 Battery Case, Apple Watch bands etc.

The iPhone SE on the other hand is not getting a spec bump. It is rumoured to receive an extra 128GB model, adding to the current 16GB and 64GB configurations. It is happy to see that Apple at least is continuing to support the small form factor.

The Barclays investment note said:

According to the information source, at the iPad Pro announcement event held in March, 2017, it seems that 128GB model would be possibly added to the models with the storage capacity variations, which are 16 GB, 64 GB, of iPhone SE.

The RED variant of the iPhone 7 and the 128GB iPhone SE are expected to be announced along side the new iPads during the March Event. Apple is rumoured to announce a new 10.5 inch iPad Pro while a ‘budget’ iPad is also expected to be announced.
