The company has also introduced some new colors for iPhone cases and Apple Watch bands. (NASDAQ:AAPL) rumor mill today is news of the iPhone 8's design.

Apple on Tuesday unveiled a special-edition red iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models to commemorate a 10-year partnership with Red, an organization that helps fight AIDS.

"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.

"The introduction of this special-edition iPhone ina gorgeous red finish is our biggest Product (RED) offering to date".

The red iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus-the first Apple phone to vaguely resemble an actual apple-will be available to order in stores and online March 24.

Apple is planning to start assembling iPhone SE in India in Bangalore soon.

Apple also quietly doubled the storage tiers for the 4-inch iPhone SE, so you can now get a 32 GB model for $399 or a 128 GB model for $499.

iPad sales are a weak spot in Apple's financials, although the company still dominates the high-end tablet market.

The company attributed the increase to strong demand for the iPhone 7 Plus.

It's available for order beginning on March 24. The firm has revealed that it's dropped the 9.7-inch iPad Air 2 in favor of a new device simply called the iPad.

The updated smartphone will be available to pre-order on Friday March 24th for the same United Kingdom price, starting at £379. It was supposed to be Apple's new flagship tablet with the added capabilities that came with its Pencil stylus and keyboard accessory, but has failed to generate much excitement as a replacement for laptops.
