I always feel excited and extremely impressed when I get to know that big companies like Apple, Google, Facebook and more like them are actually doing something worthwhile to help humanity, and contribute to the world society at large by virtue of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
If the words of Deborah Dugan, (RED)’s CEO are to be fully acknowledged, then it is very safe to say that Apple is the world’s largest corporate donor to the Global Fund, contributing more than $130 million as part of its partnership with (RED).
Quoting the words of Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, he says that “Since we began working with (RED) 10 years ago, our customers have made a significant impact in fighting the spread of AIDS through the purchase of our products, from the original iPod nano (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition all the way to today’s lineup of Beats products and accessories for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch,”

Further more, Apple did not just announce red iPhone, there’so more as they have announce another tablet, and this one is name iPad. Just iPad, no suffix.
