On March 21st, Apple announced their brand new (PRODUCT)RED special edition iPhone 7/7 Plus in a vibrant red aluminum finish, iPhone SE models in 32GB and 128GB, and a new iPad. Thankfully, for those of you who can’t wait to get them, you won’t be waiting for long. AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon have all announced availability for the new Apple products, starting March 24th.
The only differences in the new iPhone 7 models is the new RED color and that they are only offered in 128GB and 256GB versions. Since these are part of the Product RED lineup, Apple will donate a portion of the profits to a global fund that helps support HIV/AIDS programs worldwide. The iPhone SE has gotten a storage upgrade with double the storage without increasing the cost. It will be available starting at 32GB and offering up to 128GB of total storage. The newly revamped 9.7″ iPad is now the most affordable model Apple has ever released, but is slightly thicker and heavier.
Starting this Friday, AT&T is offering a buy one get one deal on the iPhone 7 RED 32GB when you add a new line and buy both devices on AT&T Next, AT&T Next Every Year, or Equipment Installment Plan (EIP) for businesses with eligible service on both. After purchasing, you will receive a monthly bill credit for the free device over 24 to 36 months, totaling up to $650. New AT&T NEXT customers can also take advantage of this $650 bill credit when switching providers and trading in an eligible device.
If you’re looking for a deal on the new iPad, then for a limited time you can pick up a 32GB model for $99 with a 2 year agreement with eligible service, after purchasing an iPhone on AT&T Next, AT&T Next Every Year or EIP with eligible service.
T-Mobile will also have the RED special edition iPhone 7/7 Plus and new iPhone SE 32GB and 128GB starting Friday. They can be picked up online and at participating T-Mobile stores nationwide. Don’t forget that with T-Mobile ONE you get unlimited texts, minutes, and data with all fees included in the price, which takes the guess work out of paying your bill each month.
Verizon will also begin offering the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus RED special edition and iPad March 24th online and in store. Verizon’s unlimited plan costs as little as $80 for a single line or $45 per line for four lines, plus taxes and fees when you enroll in auto pay.
