enum & associated values

The compiler gives an error stating to make sure enum members have associative values. Isn't that what I am doing with this code?

enums.swift
enum MobilePhone {
  case iPhone(String)
  case android(String)
  case windowsPhone(String)
}

let iphone = MobilePhone.iPhone("7 Plus")

Joshua Hardy Your answer is not wrong. The only problem with the challenge editor is that it is case sensitive. So if the question mentions "The enum will have three members: iphone, android and windowsPhone." The case is supposed to be iphone and NOT iPhone in your answer. That is all :) Hope it helps.
