The special edition red iPhone is released in collaboration with (RED), which is a global fund aiming to "bring the world a step closer to an AIDS-free generation". Apple has yet to reveal how much money from each sale will go to the charity, so we don't know how much buying a red iPhone will help the fund.

- The iPhone 7 in Red 128GB version costs $749 (£699, AU$1,229) while the larger storage size is $849 (£799, AU$1,379).

- The iPhone 7 Plus in Red will cost you $869 (£819, AU$1,419) for the 128GB or $969 (£919, AU$1,569) for the 256GB phone.

- Virgin Media also has the red iPhone 7 Plus for sale at £49 a month with 128GB of storage. The iPhone 7 in red from Virgin Media is a touch cheaper at £40 a month.
