Apple recently introduced red colour “Special Edition” variants of the iPhone 7, and iPhone 7 Plus, and they look really good. The anodized aluminium finish on these iPhones looks amazing, and the fact that the red iPhone 7, and iPhone 7 Plus devices are made in collaboration with (RED), and is marketed as a (PRODUCT)RED device, means that a particular percentage of the price you pay for the red iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus goes to the RED foundation, which uses it to fight (and research on) HIV. So, while you’re getting your brand new iPhone, you’re also contributing to a good cause, and it’s kind of like ethical consumerism. So, if you’ve bought the new red iPhone 7, or red iPhone 7 Plus, and are looking for accessories to match, here are 12 cool iPhone 7 red accessories you can buy right now:
1. SPARIN Black Full Face Screen Protector
The number one issue that people have with the red iPhone 7 is that it only comes with the white face. There isn’t even an option to go for a red iPhone with a black front. Well, if you have the same issue, you should definitely check out this screen protector from SPARIN. It is a full face screen protector that will make your red iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus have a black front panel. The screen protector isn’t flawless, as it does leave a thin white line on the edge of the display, but it ends up looking cooler than expected. SPARIN makes these screen protectors for both the iPhone 7, and the iPhone 7 Plus, so you’re good to go no matter which variant you purchased.
2. Custom Painted AirPods from ColorWare
You know what would look cool with the red iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus? Red AirPods! Thankfully, ColorWare has been offering colored AirPods to the public for quite some time now, and they really know their stuff. It’ll cost you a little extra, but if you want your AirPods to match your brand new red iPhone, you can probably consider it.
On the ColorWare website, you get options to color the AirPods in different colors, along with coloring the AirPods’ charging case (which will cost you $40 extra). Go check it out, and get the red AirPods for your red iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus.

3. Official iPhone 7 Charging Case
Okay, I know it looks poorly designed to most people, but it’s the official charging case for the iPhone 7, and it’s available in red, so why not get it for your brand new red iPhone 7? This case is also a (PRODUCT)RED item, so you’ll be contributing even more money to the good cause. The smart battery case for iPhone 7 can easily extend the battery life of your iPhone to double its default battery life.
It can be directly charged with the Apple Lightning cable (no dongles needed, thankfully!), and your iPhone will be able to display the charge remaining, both on the iPhone itself, and the charging case attached to it.
4. Mophie iPhone 7 Plus Charging Case (Red)
For some reason, Apple doesn’t make an official charging case for the iPhone 7 Plus. Maybe that’s because for the most part, the 7 Plus has a pretty great battery. However, if you’re out and about, a charging case wouldn’t go amiss, and to complement your red iPhone 7 Plus, Mophie has come out with their charging case for iPhone 7 Plus in a nice red color. The charging case packs in a 2420 mAh battery, which can provide sufficient charge to your iPhone 7 Plus. The case also supports wireless charging, which is definitely a plus.
5. Metallic iPhone Stand (Red)
You know what looks better than a red iPhone? A red iPhone on a sleek red stand. That is exactly where the Lamicall cellphone stand comes in. You can easily place your red iPhone 7, or red iPhone 7 Plus on the stand, adding to the overall look of your desk. The stand features a hole at the back for routing your charging cable through it, so you can have a clean desk setup.
The stand also features rubber grips on the claws, so your phone is gripped properly in the stand and there’s a much lower chance of the phone slipping off.
6. Black Front Skin from dbrand
If you’re sick of the white bezels on the red iPhone, and the screen protector from SPARIN isn’t cutting it for you, you can go check out dbrand. They have some really cool skins, and you can use one of their black front skins on your red iPhone to make it have a black face. dbrand skins are made from high quality materials, and are precision cut to look just awesome on your limited edition (PRODUCT)RED iPhone.
There is the obvious downfall that the home button will still be white, but you can’t really cover it up, because it’d interfere with Touch ID, and could cause other issues as well.
7. Mophie Powerstation (Red)
While charging cases are a more portable option, they are not to everyone’s liking. If you’re like me, and would much rather have a power bank than a charging case, and you don’t want to compromise on the whole red ensemble that you may be building with your red iPhone, look no further than the Mophie Powerstation. The power bank offers 4000 mAh of charge, with variable currents in the range from 500mAh, to 2A.
The Mophie Powerstation also comes in a beautiful red color that looks absolutely great, and will definitely go with your red iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus.
8. (PRODUCT)RED Apple Watch Band
If you happen to own an Apple Watch, you must know that there are a lot of bands that you can choose from. However, if you have the red iPhone, you should definitely try the red Apple Watch band. The entire look of the Apple Watch with a red band, along with the red iPhone 7, or iPhone 7 Plus is just incredible. Especially if you have the white ceramic Apple Watch. The red bands look just amazing on that.
9. Beats Solo3 Wireless Headphones (Red)
Thanks to the lack of an AUX port in the new iPhone 7, and iPhone 7 Plus devices, you’re pretty much stuck with using the lightning earpods (which aren’t good enough), or a pair of wireless headphones. Apple has released the Beats Solo3 Wireless Headphones in a red variant as well, under the same (PROODUCT)RED branding. The headphones boast of a battery life of up to 40 hours, which is definitely a lot. Plus, thanks to Apple’s easy pairing method, you’ll be set up and good to go in a matter of seconds.
10. Sony MDRXB950BT Bluetooth Headphones (Red)
If you’re not a fan of Beats’ Audio, you should definitely consider the Sony MDRXB950BT headphones. Sony makes these in red, too! They are very well balanced, provide a wide and clear sound, with deep bass. Plus, for those EDM tracks, you can use the “Bass Boost” button for some extra bass output.
The headphones can easily last around 20-21 hours on one charge, but they do come with AUX in, for times when you run out of charge but need to use the headphones. Make sure you carry your dongle, though!
11. Beats Pill+ Portable Speaker (Red)
If you’re the kind of person that likes to listen to their music out loud, the Beats Pill+ is one of the best speakers you can go with. And to go with your red iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, the Beats Pill+ is now available with the (PRODUCT)RED branding, making it a perfect match for your red iPhone.
The speakers can last around 12 hours on a single charge, and come with a lightning port for charging, plus a USB port from which you can charge your iPhone. There’s an AUX port, as well, for daisy-chaining, or connecting devices with AUX cables.
12. JBL Flip 3 Bluetooth Speaker
The JBL Flip 3 Bluetooth Speaker is also an option you can go with for listening to your music out loud. They come in at a price point that is way lower than the Beats Pill+, and provide superb sound quality (no surprises there, it’s JBL). The Bluetooth speakers are splash-proof as well, so you can carry them to pool parties, or on your outdoor adventures, without having to worry about liquids being split near the speakers. You can even clean the speaker with running tap water… JBL only asks you not to submerge the speakers in water.
The JBL Flip 3 lasts around 10 hours on a single charge, so you’re pretty much covered even for long days outside.
