Apple announces Product Red iPhone 8 and 8 Plus

iPhone 8

Just like the tech giant did last year with the iPhone 7, Apple has revealed a Product Red iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.

Product Red is an organization that campaigns to fight HIV and Aids in Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Rwanda, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania and Zambia, with an unspecified portion of proceeds from specific Red branded device sales going to the charity.

Last year’s Product Red iPhone featured a not very well-received white-bezel. This year though, Apple has taken a different route and the iPhone 8 now features a black front panel.

The Product Red version of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus join the ‘Space Gray,’ ‘Silver,’ and ‘Gold,’ iPhone 8 models. Apple is launching pre-orders for the Project Red iPhone 8 on April 10th, with an estimated shipping date of April 13th.

The 64GB iPhone 8 Plus is priced at $1,059 CAD, while the 256GB iteration is priced at $1,269. The iPhone 8 is priced at $929 for the 64GB version and $1,139 for the 256GB.

Along with the new Product Red iPhone 8, Apple is also releasing a new Product Red Folio case for the iPhone X for $129.

Update – April 10th: For those interested, the Red iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus is now available to purchase.
