Vodafone to offer iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus (PRODUCT) RED Special Edition Vodafone today announced it will offer iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus (PRODUCT) RED Special Edition, the new generation of iPhone in a stunning red finish.
The red iPhone 8 is going to start at $699 with 64GB just like regular iPhone 8 models.
However, Apple hasn't introduced a new red version for the iPhone X. Both iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus come with iOS 11. The reception of the public to these special iPhone red variants has been positive, with last year's red iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus raking in a total profit of $30 million. At least there's always the Product RED silicone case and now the leather folio for the X. Internally, the RED iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus have the same specs as its current colour options. It shares its name alongside other private companies like Nike, Coca-Cola, and others in order to highlight HIV/AIDs efforts in eight African countries: Ghana, Kenya, Rwanda, Lesotho, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia, and Tanzania. Last March, Apple launched a red iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus and discontinued those models about six months later when the initial iPhone 8 line launched. "We're honoured that Apple has dedicated its resources to our objective, and can't wait to see customers bring our mission to life through the purchase of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus (PRODUCT) RED Special Edition".
The prices remain the same for the red iPhone 8 and Plus.
The problem persists with users who have had third-party touch displays installed on their iPhone 8.
Apple is celebrating its new iPhones color with a Product Red leather folio for the iPhone X - the only phone that won't be dipped in red.
The phones will be in official stores on Friday 13th April in the following countries, Singapore, China, Japan, UK and US.
Apple hasn't commented on the development of these issues, and it's unclear if the company would roll out a minor software update to fix the issue or remind users of the dangers of third-party repairs.
