Earlier, there were rumours surrounding the launch of a Red coloured device by Apple. A Japanese blog for Apple called Macotakara had reported that Apple, for the 2017 version of its flagship smartphone, will introduce it in a red casing. Macotakara was the first blog which predicted the headphone jack removal from the iPhone, among many other rumours which turned out to be true. They have a decent track record when it comes to Apple products.
