Just last year Apple surprised us with a special RED iPhone 7 & iPhone 7 Plus. As the name suggested this were some limited edition iPhone with all red back. This trend continued this year and we have our product RED iPhone 8 & iPhone 8 Plus, so exactly what is this RED (Product) color all about ? and why apple is releasing it separately ?
(RED) was founded in 2006 by Bono and Bobby Shriver to harness the power of people and companies to help fight AIDS. Till date (RED) has generated a whopping amount of $500 million for the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, to support HIV/AIDS grants in Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Rwanda, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania and Zambia.
Out of which Apple raised over $160 million through the sale of there (RED) products. So basically whenever you buy a product in apple store which has (RED) branding on it, A portion of that money is contributed to the Global Fund, then this Global Fund uses 100% of this money to finance HIV/AIDS programs.
Currently you can buy (RED) Products which includes Leather Cases for iPhone, Leather Folio Case for iPhone X, Silicone Cases for iPhone, Smart Battery Case for iPhone, Apple Watch Sport Band, Beats Solo3 Wireless Headphones, Beats Pill+ Portable Speaker, iPod touch and of course (RED) iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.
Comparing the (RED) iPhone 8 with last years (RED) iPhone 7 we have a very good change that people requested that is the black front color, (RED) iPhone 7 had a white front which looks really bad, as a result there were many people suggesting the company to introduce a black front which looks way better then the white front. Also the Red color this year is pretty different as we had matte finish red color in iPhone 7 but this year we have a red color which is placed inside the glass & this “red” is seriously really “red” just like ferrari red !
Currently there is no option of buying this red iPhone 8 but within few days you will be able to order this phone via Apple’s Website.
