A few weeks back, Apple unveiled bright red colored iPhone 7/iPhone 7 Plus variants, demonstrating its support towards HIV/AIDS. These special edition iPhones are now up for pre-order in India via Infibeam and Amazon. The phones will be released on April 14th, 2017.
For those aloof, Apple is known to paint some of its products red in order to support and spread awareness for HIV/AIDS among the masses in support of the charity [Red]. The products are launched with the (PRODUCT)RED moniker and help the company generate a sizeable chunk of additional funds for the charity. This is because the purchase of the red-colored Apple products, which is a Special Edition iPhone 7 lineup this time around, includes a contribution to the charity.
In India, the red-colored Apple iPhone 7 128GB model has been priced at ₹70,000, while the 256GB model is priced at ₹80,000.

The red variant provides a brand new shade to Indian consumers as the color is still missing from the premium smartphone category. The device might accelerate the sales for Apple phones in India, which have been declining over the past few months. This is because of the fact that Indian populace, especially the women here generally prefer bright and contrasting colors. They could now go for this bright red edition rather than the Golden Pink, which is also quite popular among the masses.
In addition, Apple started taking pre-orders for its latest 9.7-inch iPad, the past week. The new iPad is up for pre-order exclusively on Flipkart and is one of the most affordable premium tablets out there in the market.
