In the news: IKEA launches fashion-first speakers, Apple goes RED again in a good cause and Spotify teases hardware (or not)...

IKEA's fashion forward speakers - With its collaboration with Sonos yet to surface, IKEA has launched its own range of Enerby Bluetooth-enabled loudspeakers (photo above). They seem more about style than outright audio performance but they are certainly styley with a retro vibe and colourways. Find out more here

RED iPhones in a good cause - Apple has introduced (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition versions of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. All (PRODUCT)RED purchases help provide testing, counselling and treatment for people living with HIV/AIDS. Both phones sport a red glass enclosure with a matching aluminium band and a black front. The special edition (PRODUCT)RED iPhone will be in stores Friday 13 April. There's also a (PRODUCT)RED iPhone X Leather Folio. Find out more here

Hush hush at Spotify - Streaming superstar Spotify may be on track to launch its own hardware on 24 April this year. Invites have gone out to the media for an event on that day but, in terms of what's being launched, there's little or nothing official to go on, except for some images of some sort of streaming in-car product which of course could be a total red herring. More on 25 April...
