Brace Yourselves, the Next iPhone Might Come in Red

By Christina Warren on at

When the next iPhone arrives next year, it might come in an additional colour: Red. At least, that’s the rumour according to Japanese Apple blog Macoakara. Red people. Are you ready for a red phone?

Citing a “Taiwanese supplier,” Macotakar says that Apple will be releasing an iPhone 7S and 7S Plus in 2017, that will retain the same aluminium design as the iPhone 7 (which, headphone jack aside, is essentially the same design as the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S).

Now, that sounds a bit off because every other rumour we’ve heard suggests that Apple will be putting out an all glass phone and that at least one model will have an OLED display. Huh!

But back to the colour, Apple has a habit of switching up colours every now and then. The red colourway would be added to the existing gold, rose gold, silver, black, and jet black options. We will say that Macotakara’s sources have been right on colour changes before. The site was correct in predicting both the rose gold and jet black iPhone colours. Will the online rumour publication be correct about red?

Apple also has a long history of working with the Project (RED) on special editions of products in its lineup, even going as far as to do special Project (RED) app promotions with proceeds going towards World AIDS Day.
