What’s better than scoring a new iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus in a killer shade of red? Doing it for a good cause, of course. Specifically, Apple just announced the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition. Featured on the smartphone is a striking red finish on the glass enclosure, with matching aluminium band and a black front. A portion of every purchase will go directly toward Global Fund HIV/AIDS grants, which provide crucial testing, counselling, treatment and prevention, with a focus on eliminating transmission between mother and child.
In addition to the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus variants, Apple is releasing a new (PRODUCT)RED iPhone X Leather Folio. Made from premium European leather, the folio emanates with luxury, with proceeds again going toward vital HIV/AIDS research, treatment and prevention. All three products join a substantial range of (PRODUCT)RED devices and accessories offered by the brand. It’s therefore no surprise that Apple is Global Fund’s largest donor, having contributed more than USD$160 million to the cause.
Along with that sleek new colourway, you get all the perks one might expect from the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus. Indeed, from its Retina HD display to its durable glass exterior to its outrageously popular camera, Apple’s latest smartphone is as optimal as it is beautiful. If you’ve been holding out on buying one for some reason, now is definitely a good time to take the plunge.
