Apple revealed a new edition of the iPhone on Monday: the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus RED.
The two phones wear an excellent glass enclosure with a coordinating aluminum band and a smooth dark front. The new RED iPhone is currently available to order online in select countries and regions and will be in stores starting Friday, April 13.
The models are in affiliation with (RED), a nonprofit that attempts to battle AIDS and HIV in Africa.
The gadgets are distinguishable from the iPhone 8 gadgets Apple launched back in September. They join a current line-up of iPhone 8 colors, for example, dark, silver and gold. The red phones, accessible in 64 GB and 256 GB, begin at $699 and $799, respectively. This is the second year Apple has released iPhone models in red. A year ago, the extraordinary version of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus honored a 10-year long association between Apple and (RED).
“This special edition (PRODUCT)RED iPhone features a stunning red and black color combination and also offers customers the opportunity to make an impact in fighting the spread of HIV and AIDS,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of Product Marketing. “iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus improve on everything we love about iPhone, including Retina HD displays that are more beautiful than ever, the most powerful and smartest chip ever in a smartphone with the A11 Bionic and more advanced cameras for unbelievable photos and videos. We are proud to support (RED) with this bold new iPhone and hope customers think it is as special as we do.”
Apple has created (RED) themed items for a long time now. For example, they’ve released special edition iPhones, Beats earphones, and red embellishments for the iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch. A part of the returns from those items goes to Global Fund HIV/AIDS grants for testing, advising, treatment, and counteractive action endeavors.
“Today’s announcement is further evidence of Apple’s leadership in and commitment to the AIDS fight since the beginning of (RED) in 2006,” said Deborah Dugan, (RED)’s CEO. “The more than $160 million Apple has donated in the last 11 years today equates to more than 800 million days of lifesaving ARV medication that prevents the transmission of HIV from mothers to their babies. We’re honored that Apple has dedicated its resources to our purpose, and can’t wait to see customers bring our mission to life through the purchase of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition.”
