IPhone 8, 8 Plus (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition Announced

Share

Last year's red edition of the iPhone 7 and current RED accessories raised over $210 million.

Deborah Dugan, CEO of RED said, "The more than $160 million Apple has donated in the last 11 years today equates to more than 800 million days of life-saving ARV medication that prevents the transmission of HIV from mothers to their babies".

Economic Daily News reported Monday that Apple wants to move on from the lukewarm response to its iPhone X/8/8 Plus series by introducing a new model with triple back cameras next year. Both special editions will go into order stage after 10.30 PM Sydney time on April 10, and then shipping that Friday. While the addition of a red color option for the iPhone 8 might result in a modest uptick in sales, the underlying motivation here is to raise money to help promote AIDS awareness and research via the (Product) RED program. "We are proud to support (RED) with this bold new iPhone and hope customers think it is as special as we do".

So people who have managed to already break their iPhone 8 screen and went the cheaper route of getting it fixed by a non verified Apple fix shop are now at risk of having a useless phone.

These gorgeous new iPhones plug in to the partnership between Apple, brand licensing company (RED) and The Global Fund, which aims to fight AIDS. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. Well, the photo below - which features the red iPhone 8 lined up to a few other red smartphone models - should give you a good idea.

Apple iPhone 8 Plus (RED) - It has a 5-5-inch LCD Retina HD IPS display with a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels and a pixel density of 401 ppi.

The white front panel of the (PRODUCT) RED iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus was something that many weren't a fan of. The red iPhone 8 models cost the same as the gold, grey, and silver versions, at $699 for the smaller model and $799 for the Plus. The iPhone Upgrade Program is available at apple.com, the Apple Store app and Apple Stores in the U.S. with monthly payments starting at $34.50 (US) for the iPhone 8 64GB model.
