    Ooooo. Nice.

  • Cones1r

    I want a hunter green color

  • Douglas Scott

    Should have been red with black screen

    • Blacklight: Retribution

      I agree. Tired of the white screen on almost all colors.

    • Anthony

      I love the white face but I do agree red might have the best color to match a black face. I can’t see them doing it with anything else

      • John

        I think red with black face would be too 80’s. Thewhite face feels more simplistic modern look.

    • Wilber Alexander Flores

      This would be the colour I want. Or give us a blue like the pixel

    • Leo Saint

      facts

    • Gerardo Castro

      Red with black
      White with blue (though that would copy the Pixel exactly)

    • Jay

      It seems a bit lazy too, the ring around the home button should be red too like all the other colors…

  • Martynet

    I want gold with black front 🙂

  • Gerardo Castro

    iPhone SE has also been updated in terms of storage capacity

  • That looks gorgeous but I agree with below comments about the black screen.
    Here’s hoping they release this for the i7s too

  • Woz A Nater

    That’s just butt ugly.

    • igorsky

      See above.

  • kris

    Make the whole thing red. That’s hideous

    • igorsky

      This is supporting a great cause, you prick.

      • kris

        Because it’s ugly I dont support the cause?

      • SpideyRules

        People can have their opinions about the look of this phone and it doesn’t say anything about their opinion about ‘the cause’. Only mind-numbing idiots would make that correlation…

  • Ernest Cooper

    Apple are almost certain to continue this colour option into the fall when the I phone 7S/8 will then be available and is just a stop gap to boost sales of the current model-must say i am glad they have made it a subdued/classy shade of rather than the pillar box/traffic light variety.

  • jalexcarter

    yeah the whole thing should’ve just been red. even having a black front would’ve been better but if it was that way i probably wouldnt be able to stop picturing the old black and red U2 ipod classic haha that thing was pretty cool lookin tho! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5a6f3663490d07c9d99ed575df1e8b81b7a1e5ef521b11991d633fbb30c5fa05.jpg

  • SpideyRules

    I’d buy this if there wasn’t a new iteration of iPhone coming out in less than 7 months.

  • Chris Mn

    They should create like a workshop that brands like converse offers; pay a little more but be able to customize your colors schemes. I know I would pay extra for that.

  • MMA Rules

    But I could get this with a skin, I know I know it’s for the cause don’t kill me https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/87f57d15dff1bac1a7bdbb098122ecd23e1cba3f6662c23e1c4d09a66b99dd69.jpg

    • igobythisname

      this is much better since the product (RED) version is white not black on the front. what’s the name of this skin? thanks!

      • MMA Rules

        There are a couple of companies, dBrand, EasySkinz, ColorWare, etc.

  • igobythisname

    I would be SOLD! [on getting the 7S Plus version of this product (RED)] if the front of the iPhone was black, not white! smh~!

  • WvB22

    Apple could better donate some food now. Otherwise there won’t be any people left to protect from AIDS.

  • bluedog

    No need for the F bomb
