Apple iPhone 7 & 7 Plus now come in Red to fight HIV/AIDS

March 24, 2017 by

Out today! The new special edition iPhone 7 and 7 Plus come in a vibrant cherry red aluminum finish, and are available in 128GB and 256GB models. This new colourway celebrates over 10 years of partnership between Apple and (RED), and every purchase contributes to the Global Fund to support HIV/AIDS programs and help deliver an AIDS-free generation.

$1 can provide 3 days of lifesaving medicine.

"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. "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.”
