Apple Releases (PRODUCT) RED Bumper for iPhone 4S/4




Just a month before Apple is expected to introduce a redesigned iPhone, the company has launched a new (PRODUCT) RED bumper for the iPhone 4S and iPhone 4. Priced at $29 in the United States, the new red bumper joins the other six colors that have been available since the launch of the iPhone 4 in June 2010: black, white, blue, pink, orange, and green. The new red bumper's imminent launch was reported by 9to5Mac.




The new bumper is currently shipping in 4-6 business days from Apple's online store.

Apple has participated in the (PRODUCT) RED campaign against AIDS for a number of years, first introducing a red iPod nano in late 2006. The company has continued to offer several different (PRODUCT) RED items since that time, currently supporting the project with red iPod nano models, red iPad Smart Covers and Smart Cases, and now the red iPhone bumper. At an Apple town hall meeting for employees back in February, Tim Cook noted that sales of (PRODUCT) RED Apple products have generated over $50 million for the charity.

Good timing given that they just got press for having layoffs.

Didn't the U2 iPod also help (PRODUCT) RED?

All these iPhone bumper colors, reminds me of that old rainbow iMac advertisement in the 90's.

Would be nice if they released an actual red one along with white and black for those of us who don't need or like the bumpers.

I'm sure they'll fly off the shelves with the iPhone 5 imminent. And no, it won't be the iPhone 6 you losers.

4s

Looks like the 4S will stick around for the next generation as the entry level iPhone. This isn't a shocker but there is no way Apple would release an accessory for a device they are discontinuing in a month.

I'm fine with these products, but I hate it when someone corners me on a bus and asks why I didn't buy it to support charity. Well, why didn't you just donate instead of having to purchase something to feel good?

Hadn't thought of it, but a red iPhone would be eye-catching!

It's about time even though the new iPhone is imminent. Odds are they'll keep the 4 and 4S around for another year anyways so why not.

That would really be lousy timing since there are more people after the layoffs who can't afford to buy it.

Thanks for the pic. I've been wanting this Red bumper for sometime. I prefer a naked phone but the Red on White will get me protecting the phone a bit more.

Also worth noting (PRODUCT) RED is not a charity. They are a company that makes a profit, and give some of the money to AIDS research

Guess this proves they're gonna wait another year or so before releasing a new phone.

So much for doubling down on secrecy.

Steve would never have approved this.

Apple really need to update their bumpers. This looks just like the black one.
