RED was co-founded by U2’s lead Bono, but it’s not just U2 that RED has a tie-up with. It has also collaborated with popular brands, like Apple for instance, to work in conjunction for the noble cause of treatment and prevention of HIV/AIDS. Also Read - Beware!

Bono announced a partnership with Apple in 2004, with the introduction of a special U2-branded iPod. A total of four versions of iPod were sold as U2 Special Editions, with a black front panel, red click wheel, and most importantly, signatures of all the band members on the back. Bono took the partnership a level ahead by creating this connection between Apple and RED. By September 2013, Apple is said to have donated $65 million to Product RED.
The recent big auctions include Apple VP of Design Jony Ive designed gold EarPods, and the new RED MacPro. Current product range includes RED range of iPod and smart cases for iPad and the iPhone.
