Apple Announces The Release Of iPhone 8 RED And iPhone 8 Plus RED
Apple introduces iPhone 8 Red and iPhone 8 Plus Red SPECIAL EDITION today . As with the iPhone 7 models announced around the same time last year, Apple is working with Product (RED), an organization that campaigns to fight HIV and AIDS in Africa; an unspecified portion of proceeds from sales of the phones will go to the charity.
How Does It Look?
The new iPhone has a strikingly different look. The aluminum edge band looks similar to the iPhone 7, but that’s where the similarity ends.There is no antenna band visible at the phone’s corners as that runs under the glass on the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. Anodized aluminum is matte, but glass, of course, is not, making for a bright, eye-catching finish.
When Will It Be Available?
Pre-orders online start at 5.30AM PDT on Tuesday, April 10 and the (PRODUCT)RED iPhones will be available at Apple stores from Friday, April 13.
iPhone 8 Red And iPhone 8 Plus Red Price
The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus will be available in two storage capacities, 64GB and 256GB, and the (PRODUCT) RED edition iPhone 8 costs $699(Rs.45,347.62) and $849 (Rs.55,078.88). For the 64GB and 256GB models respectively and (PRODUCT) RED iPhone 8 Plus is priced at $799(Rs.51,835.12) and $949 (Rs. 61,566.38).
As stated by Apple CEO Tim Cook, for World AIDS DAY, December 1 2016, : ‘Ten years ago there were 1,200 babies being born a day with HIV, and that’s now dropped to 400. So there’s been a lot of progress but we still have work to do to get to an AIDS-free generation by 2020, though we are on target, it’s within our sights.’
Deborah Dugan, CEO of (RED), added, ‘The more than $160 million Apple has donated in the last 11 years today equates to more than 800 million days of lifesaving ARV medication that prevents the transmission of HIV from mothers to their babies.’
