It has been over a decade since the Apple Inc. has been working on Product RED to support the HIV/ AIDS programs, which help people obtaining the required awareness about HIV/AIDS, provide counselling, and medicines, prevent HIV/AIDS virus spreading from a mother to her unborn child, especially in Africa. Apple donates an unspecified share of the total sales of the red iPhone 8 Verizon to charity. Notably, since its collaboration with (RED) in the year of 2006, the company has donated more than $160 million to HIV/AIDS Global Fund and is considered as the leading corporate donor of the organization.
The tech giant and one of the globally renowned mobile monarchs, Apple has launched new red iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 plus red. The red iPhone 8 release date was on April 10, 2018, and these Apple red color variants are available on pre-bookings now. The Apple Inc. will start the shipping of the pre-orders on April 13, 2018, Friday. These red color variants will be available in Apple stores from the same date, and will accompany the other Apple products including the Apple Watch 3, Beats Pill, Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones, iPad, Portable Speakers and other accessories for iPhones.
Greg Joswiak, vice president of Product Marketing in Apple, announced, “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,” He further added, “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.

Much like the last year’s iPhone 7 editions, iPhone 8 is also going to make a buzz in the market. These new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus have the red aluminum matte finish and come with a 64 GB and 256 GB storage options. Both the red variants have the astonishing glass enclosure with a smooth and glossy black front. What makes the iPhone 8 plus news more talked-about is its similar features to iPhone 8 with added components such as wireless charging, cutting-edge cameras and trailblazing Apple processors. However, the company has not released the red color variants of its one of the greatest and best-selling phones, iPhone X. Though, the red color leather case for iPhone X is available in the marketplace.
