A report has surfaced claiming to have uncovered evidence of an upcoming Product Red Apple Watch. French tech site WatchGeneration said it saw a listing of a red model in “an Apple database”, but did not expand on the source.
It suggested that the reference number was different to existing Product Red Apple Watch straps, but similar enough to suggest it’d be a red Watch.
Apple currently sells a Product Red iPhone 11, iPad touch and several accessories such as cases as part of its longstanding partnership with the AIDS charity Red. It has never produced a red Watch, though it would surely sell well.
The report says the Watch would likely be the entry-level aluminium Watch. The latest Series 5 Apple Watch comes in aluminium and more expensive stainless steel, titanium and ceramic models that don’t add any additional functionality.
It might make sense for Apple to release a red Apple Watch mid-cycle to keep interest (and advertising) hot for its wearable. If it is to pass, it might debut with the rumoured iPhone SE 2 in March when the company is rumoured to hold a hardware event.
It’s also expected that Apple will update its iPad Pro line at this event.
