Apple announces special edition (PRODUCT)RED iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, order from tomorrow

Apple has announced a brand new (PRODUCT)RED iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, available later this week. The product features a special red back design and a black bezel. For iPhone X, there is no new hardware but there is a special (PRODUCT) leather folio case.

Apple says the new (PRODUCT)RED iPhone will be available to order from Tuesday, April 10. The product will be in stores this Friday.

This announcement confirms a report from just yesterday.

Last year, Apple kicked off the PRODUCT(RED) tradition with special edition versions of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in the spring. This special color was made available until the iPhone 8 and iPhone X debuted in the fall.

There was a lot of criticism with the iPhone 7 in PRODUCT(RED) design, primarily because Apple opted to go with a white bezel finish and silver home button. This year, the company has gone for black and red, which honestly looks so much better.
