“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.”

According to Apple, the red iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be available in 128 GB and 256 GB models starting at $749. There’s no 32 GB version of the phone, which sells for $649 in other colors.

Although the color is different, the red phone, which will be available Friday, March 24, has the same specifications as the existing iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models.

There are rumors the iPhone 8, with a major redesign, is coming in September.
