Seeing red? Here's Apple's ad for the (PRODUCT)Red iPhone 8/8 Plus

It has been a week since Apple unveiled the (PRODUCT)Red iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. And of course, Apple's giant marketing machine has already been all over the new releases with its giant gears turning. Just in case you haven't watched any television for the last week, what you'll find at the top of this article is Apple's television commercial for the new (PRODUCT)Red iPhone models. As far as the ad goes, you might not recognize the device shown on the screen as being an iPhone. Not at first, anyway. The Touch ID button (remember that, Apple iPhone X owners?) appears at the 14 second mark, giving away the whole thing.

The (PRODUCT)Red Apple iPhone 8 with 64GB of native storage is priced at $699 or $34.50 a month over 24 months. The installment plan includes membership to the iPhone upgrade program and AppleCare+. The model with 256GB of storage is priced at $849 or $40.75 a month for 24 months.

The (PRODUCT)Red Apple iPhone 8 Plus with 64GB of native storage will set you back $799 or $39.50 a month over 24 months. The unit carrying 256GB of internal storage is tagged at $949, or you can make 24 monthly payments of $45.75.

A portion of the revenues earned from the sales of the two (PRODUCT)Red models and accessories are donated to the Global Fund to Fight Aids. So far, Apple says that it has raised $160 million for this worthy cause.

Does anyone know how much percentage goes towards that fund from the purchase of a RED product?

This ad is a waste of money actually. The iPhone 8 has been out for months, and now they have a red one. Word of mouth is free.
