"This special edition RED iPhone features a stunning red and black color combination and also offers customers the opportunity to make an impact in fighting the spread of HIV and AIDS," said Greg Joswiak, Apple's vice president of Product Marketing.

"iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus improves on everything we love about iPhone, including Retina HD displays that are more beautiful than ever, the most powerful and smartest chip ever in a smartphone with the A11 Bionic and more advanced cameras for unbelievable photos and videos. We are proud to support RED with this bold new iPhone and hope customers think it is as special as we do," he added.
