    In addition to our standalone articles covering the latest Apple news and rumors at MacRumors, this Quick Takes column provides a bite-sized recap of other headlines about Apple and its competitors on weekdays.

    Friday, March 23

    1. (PRODUCT)RED edition iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and/or iPhone X very soon? Steve Hemmerstoffer, who runs the OnLeaks account on Twitter, says at least one red-colored iPhone might be released soon. However, he says his source is unverified, so treat this rumor with a dose of skepticism.

    (PRODUCT)RED edition iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus

    Rosenblatt Securities analyst Jun Zhang also said Apple may release a (PRODUCT)RED edition of the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and/or iPhone X. A year ago this week, Apple unveiled a special (PRODUCT)RED edition of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, so there's certainly some precedence to suggest this rumor may be true.

    2. Apple edits iPhone X ad that captured an animation glitch: A week ago, 9to5Mac's Benjamin Mayo noticed the iPhone X ad "Unlock" captured a minor bug causing some text to briefly appear outside of notification bubbles on the lock screen. The bug can be seen in the tweet below or in GIF form over at The Verge.

    As it turns out, Apple has quietly edited the video to remove any evidence of the glitch, somehow without re-uploading it to its YouTube channel. The irony is that Apple hasn't fixed the bug in the latest iOS 11.3 beta, but given the attention it has now received, expect that to change soon.

    If Apple says it's red, it's RED! ;)

    Besides, when I do a search for "red glass," I get back a ton of matches of apparently red glass. For example...


    ...and this one...


    ...which apparently depicts the first guy forced to depend on either Siri or Apple Maps. :eek:

    Just kidding: Siri is a perfect virtual assistant in every possible way and Apple Maps never, ever leads me to a wrong destination. Those are tears of joy at the privilege of getting to partake of Siri & Maps;)

    A little ornate, but I’d go for that color scheme.

    X obviously,

    the 6 body already had its fun with the (red) -- by that I mean 7/7+

    they're probably wanting to move more X units than 8 too, more margin

    They have 2 color options for the X, it wouldn't be difficult to add another one.

    I wish they would make a Product Red phone with a black face. Red and black is such an awesome combination... Red and white, not so much.

    The bug of text showing up outside of intended space is also plaguing some games too.

    Why not just call it “Red” rather than adding the ridiculous “product” prefix?

    It is because “Product Red” is the brand under which corporates can release items to support the brand.

    Hahaha they changed the ad!!? Awesome! I did mention in the other post, if we want to improve iOS before a WWDC, all the big media companies should write an article or post a video depicting various bugs. We should share it to them, so that they can make those bugs public. And magically all the bugs will be fixed by Apple... because ... well... their reputation

    Huh? I didn't know Apple had a fully transparent glass phone. You do realize that there's a colour under the glass right? They can make them any colour they want.

    All they have to do is either paint the back side of the glass or tint the glass itself, as they do with the space gray versions.

    I'm actually astonished that a company named "apple" doesn't make every product available in a candy apple red color. Seems like an enormous missed opportunity to me.

    Not sure how credible them silently changing the ad without uploading is. The day Macrumors posted about the ad, people mentioned the message grouping feature in the forum thread. I specifically remember the message being grouped inside of the bubble, and I think the comments about the grouping in the forums would have addressed the broken bubble, if that existed in the ad then.

    So, unless this happened before the Macrumors post, I’m calling this false / sarcasm taken seriously by MR.

    I love the look of Product Red, but I don’t see the point when these things are so fragile that they need cases, which you can get in any color you want.
