Chinese phone dealer and ecommerce site Taobao has reposted a teasing picture to a Weibo account from a mobile carrier that suggests a red color option could be appearing imminently for the iPhone 7 and/or iPhone 7 Plus.
As spotted by French tech blog igen.fr, the image very clearly plays on the possibility, with red marching ants outlining a blank handset among a throng of iPhone 7 Plus devices and the word “Ready?” underneath with the letters r, e, and d highlighted in red.
Japanese blog Mac Otakara has claimed Apple will host a March event to debut its new iPad Pro lineup, an iPhone SE with 128GB storage, new Apple Watch bands, and a red color option for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. While an event now looks unlikely, it’s possible the red color could appear alongside other new products when Apple’s online store comes back up within the next couple of hours.
