The (PRODUCT) RED iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be available first to consumers in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, the United Kingdom, and the US.
Meanwhile, looking much further ahead, there's a new rumor from Taiwan's Economic Daily News that Apple is considering the implementation of a three-camera system for its flagship 2019 iPhone, along the lines of Huawei's new P20 smartphones.

The new colour variant will be available to order from April 10 and ships starting from April 13th in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, the United Kingdom and U.S. countries.
Reports are coming that the special edition models will launch in India in the month of April.
Also, you all should know that new iPhones are part of the company's Red initiative and it directly funds the programmes that combat HIV and AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa.
After 11 years of working together, Apple has become one (RED)'s largest corporate donor, donating more than $160 million to the Global Fund.
Third party screen suppliers have already worked out the problem, but fixing the busted phones means re-opening up the phone and upgrading the chip.Even then Apple can release another update which borks the repairs.
The special edition iPhones will be available for pre-orders from April 10th in stores starting April 13th. The chip has to be replaced for the iPhone 8's touch functionality to work.
Each (Product) Red iPhone is sold for the same price as a standard model, however Apple will donate a portion of the sale to the Global Fund.
Apple has just dropped a brand new iPhone colour to obsess over - the RED Special Edition. The latest Apple gadget to get the color treatment?
Greg Joswiak, Apple's vice president of Product Marketing, said the phone's beauty is not only in the surface for it "offers customers the opportunity to make an impact in fighting the spread of HIV and AIDS".
