Apple announces iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition go on sale on April 10
It appears that the leaked Virgin Mobile document mentioning Apple will introduce the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition on April 9 was 100% accurate, as the official press release went live earlier today.

So, if you've been waiting for these premium Apple products, you'll be pleased to know they will be available for purchase online starting April 10. Also, customers will be able to pick either of the two smartphones in stores beginning April 13.

A new (PRODUCT)RED iPhone X Leather Folio will be launched alongside the new iPhones, which will be available from Apple's online stores for $99 beginning tomorrow, April 10.

As far as availability goes, the special edition iPhone models will be available to order tomorrow, April 10 after 5:30 am PDT in the following countries: Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, the UK, and the US.

The third wave of countries and regions to get these premium products in May include Chile, Colombia, India, Israel, Turkey, and others.

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition will be available in 64GB and 256GB models starting at an Apple retail price of $699. Customers will be able to choose from three three color options: space gray, silver, and gold.

On top of that, every customer who buys iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition from Apple will be offered a free Personal Setup in-store or online, which is meant to help them get the most out of their new smartphone.

Finally, customers in the United States can take advantage of Apple's iPhone Upgrade Program to get the special edition iPhone, with the protection of AppleCare+. The program is available in the US with monthly payments starting at $34.50 for the iPhone 8 64GB model.

I really like their Product RED as this also give support to the people who are fighting against HIV/AIDS especially those in Africa.

Clear you are influencing in red, let this nonsense, Apple greedy and stingy and impossible to pay something from its pocket, You and others will pay the bill by increasing the price of the phone and finally the applause for Apple. And who says Apple does not raise the price of the phone then why not put a iphonex in red with them. The reason is clear that the price of the phone is basically high and suffers from the lack of sales it is unreasonable to increase. Samsung donates more than $200 million, builds schools and hospitals, and does not advertise itself.

It's Apple. They do things you hate. It's called COURAGE.

Some like the white on the front, and they can't please everyone. But I do agree, to me the black front does look better. That goes for all phones as I like the way black blends with the screen.

The only thing that bugs me about this is that when I get my RED Hydrogen, people are going to be like, "iPhone RED edition?" No. Not that at all.
