Apple has decided to surprise fans with a special edition (PRODUCT)RED iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.
More similar to the Red iPhone 7/7Plus, both phones feature a red glass enclosure with a matching aluminum band and a black front. Pre-orders begin tomorrow, 10 April and will officially release on Friday, 13 April 2018. No details yet on when the model will arrive in South Africa.
Apple will also release a (PRODUCT)RED iPhone X Leather Folio, which will be available beginning tomorrow for $99. Crafted from specially tanned and finished European leather for a luxurious look and feel, the new folio joins other (PRODUCT) RED devices and accessories available for customers to purchase.
A portion of proceeds for all (PRODUCT) RED purchases go directly to Global Fund HIV/AIDS grants that provide testing, counseling, treatment and prevention programs with a specific focus on eliminating transmission of the virus from mothers to their babies. Since partnering with (RED) in 2006, Apple has donated more than $160 million to the Global Fund, serving as the organization’s largest corporate donor.
