Red iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus could be announced today
Currently you can only get the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus in silver, gold and space grey, but Apple could be about to add a fourth color to the mix, as reportedly a red shade might be announced today (Monday 9).
That’s according to an internal Virgin Mobile memo, sent to its employees and obtained by MacRumors .
Specifically, the new color would be a limited edition (PRODUCT)RED shade, which we’ve seen Apple launch previously for the iPhone 7 , so the iPhone 8 version is likely to be a similarly bright red. 
Some proceeds from the sales would also presumably go to the (RED) AIDS charity.
Coming very soon
The memo states that this red iPhone 8 would be added to Virgin Mobile’s inventory immediately after today’s announcement, so you may be able to pre-order it in a matter of hours, although it’s unknown how long it will be before the phone starts shipping.
There's also no word on what it will cost, though we'd expect it will be the same price as the existing shades, as nothing other than the color is likely to change.
And although this information is so far unconfirmed it’s looking like it might well be accurate, as a red iPhone 8 has been rumored before, and Apple reporter Mark Gurman has tweeted that the launch should happen this week.
Interestingly though the memo makes no mention of a red iPhone X , or a blush gold one, the latter of which has previously been rumored and even caught on camera
So we might be waiting longer for that if it ever arrives, which is a shame, since right now you can only get Apple’s top-end iPhone in silver or space grey.

Apple announces new red iPhone 8 and 8 Plus
Apple is introducing new red models of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus 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. Unlike last year's white-bezeled models , the red iPhone 8 has a black front panel.
The Product (RED) iPhone 8 and 8 Plus join the existing space gray, silver, and gold models in the lineup. Last year, Apple discontinued the red variants of the 7 and 7 Plus once the 8, 8 Plus, and X were announced in September, so these new models may only be on sale for less than half a year.

Apple releases a red iPhone 8
Apple is doing it again. The company just unveiled a new version of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. It has a bright red enclosure and a black front. A portion of Apple’s proceeds will fund HIV/AIDS grants from the Global Fund.
Other than that, it’s an iPhone 8. You’ll get the exact same features and components as in other iPhone 8 models. The iPhone 8 is also available in gold, silver and (“space”) gray. Alas, there’s still no rose gold option.
When Apple unveiled the red version of the iPhone 7, many people didn’t understand why Apple put white bezels at the front of the device. Red and black seem like a good match. That’s why some people even bought screen protectors with black borders to fix this.
This year, Apple is switching to black. It’s interesting to see that Apple waits around 6 months before launching red versions of its iPhones. It could be a way to foster sales in the middle of a product cycle.
The red iPhone 8 is going to start at $699 with 64GB just like regular iPhone 8 models. There will be 256GB versions too. Pre-orders start tomorrow and you’ll be able to buy it in Apple stores on Friday.
For iPhone X users, Apple is launching a dark red leather folio. Apple is also sharing some numbers about its partnership with (PRODUCT)RED. Since 2006, Apple has donated $160 million to the Global Fund through limited edition iPods, iPhones and accessories.

According to Deborah Dugan, the CEO of (RED), Apple has donated more than $160 million to (RED)'s efforts to combat AIDS and HIV in the last 11 years.  Read more...

The iPhone X gets a RED leather folio
Apple announced a new iPhone X leather folio , which comes out tomorrow. It’s a $99 leather phone case that was “specially tanned and finished” in Europe. The case has an outer flap to cover and protect the screen. Apple also announced red versions of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus today .
When you buy a Product (RED) device or accessory, an unspecified percentage of the proceeds will go toward The Global Fund HIV and AIDS grants. The grants focus on preventing mothers from passing on the virus to their babies.
Last year, Apple also released a red model of the iPhone 7, which was also associated with HIV and AIDS charity. In China, however, the RED branding was noticeably missing , and the phones were just marketed as red-colored phones, with no...

Apple reveals special edition Product Red iPhone 8 and 8 Plus smartphones
Apple
Red joins gold, silver, and space gray in the color lineup for Apple's iPhone 8 and 8 Plus .

Apple releases red iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus in UAE and Saudi
As expected, Apple has released the (PRODUCT)RED version of the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus. The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus got this special edition around this time last year as well. Except this time, the front of the iPhone is black instead of white. And it looks stunning.
The special edition iPhone will be available to order online tomorrow and in stores beginning Friday, April 13 with prices starting at AED 2,991 for the 64GB model. These prices are identical to other colors that the iPhone 8 is available in.
With a glass back, the red version of the iPhone is more reflective than last year's model but other than the color change, this is the same exact iPhone 8 and ipHone 8 Plus that have been available for a few months. As with other Apple products, part of proceeds for all (PRODUCT)RED purchases go directly to Global Fund HIV/AIDS grants.
No RED for iPhone X
Rumors have been floating around that Apple may soon introduce the iPhone X with new color options. To see this opportunity now come and go with today's announcement is disappointing to holdouts, but there's a bit of consolatory news.
Apple is celebrating its new iPhones color with a Product Red leather folio for the iPhone X – the only phone that won’t be dipped in red. It will be available from April 10 and will set you back AED 419. 
Sure, it's not the red iPhone X you might have been hoping for, but at least the leather folio is for a good cause.

Red iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus available from April 13
Apple has officially launched the red iPhone 8 and red iPhone 8 Plus , although there's no sign of the same shade for the iPhone X .
As part of Apple’s continued support for the Product Red initiative, which raises awareness for HIV and AIDS, two of its latest phones have received a new splash of color, retaining the line’s super glossy, all-glass look.
If you’re interested in checking the red model out in person, your local Apple Store will stock it on its shelves starting Friday, April 13. 
The red iPhone 8 starts at $699 (£699, AU$1,079) for the 64GB version and $849 (£849, AU$1,329) for the 256GB version, while the red iPhone 8 Plus will set you back $799 (£799, AU$1,229) for the 64GB version and $949 (£949, AU$1,479) for 256GB – the same asking prices as the other colors. 
If only Apple applied this pricing logic to its Space Gray Mac accessories .
You’ll be able to pre-order the red iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus starting on April 10.  In the US, T-Mobile has confirmed it will also be offering the red iPhone duo, while Vodafone in the UK is also stocking the new color.
Only a little love for the iPhone X

Röda iPhone 8 och iPhone 8 Plus tillkännagavs idag
Förut kunde du bara köpa iPhone 8 och iPhone 8 Plus i färgerna silver, guld eller rymdgrå, men Apple har nu lagt till en fjärde färg till urvalet – de annonserade att en röd färg kommer läggas till idag (måndag 9 april).
Nyheten kom först från ett läckt pm från Virgin Mobile som skickades ut till deras anställda och sedan kom till MacRumors .
Den nya färgen är en begränsad utgåva av en röd nyans, som vi tidigare har sett Apple lansera för andra produkter, såsom iPhone 7 . Färgen på den röda iPhone 8 är samma färgstarka ton. 
En del av förtjänsten från försäljningen kommer gå till välgörenhetsorganisationen Globala Fonden för att bekämpa HIV/AIDS.
Beställ från och med 10 april
I det läckta pm:et stod det att röda iPhone 8 skulle tas in i Virgin Mobiles inventarie. Du kommer inte kunna förbeställa din nya röda mobil direkt, utan måste vänta till 10 april då Apple börjar leverera den till Sverige.
Apple har ännu inte sagt någonting om vad telefonen kommer att kosta, men vi förväntar oss att priset kommer ligga på ungefär samma som för de andra färgerna som redan finns. Det tillkommer inga andra ändringar än att det är en ny färg.
Det är inte första gången som det har ryktats om en röd iPhone 8 och Apples reporter Mark Gurman har twittrat tidigare om att lanseringen skulle ske den här veckan.
Det läckta pm:et nämnde dock inte något om en röd iPhone X eller en med rosa guldig färg – den senare har det ryktats om tidigare och har till och med fångats på bild
Vi kanske får vänta länge om den rosa färgen någonsin kommer, vilket är synd. Men så länge får vi glädja oss åt att kunna välja Apples lyxigaste mobiltelefon i både silver, guld, rymdgrå och nu röd.

You can now buy the red iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus
You can now order the new red iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus through Apple’s website. It entered its pre-sale phase today and if you order before 5PM in your respective region, it will arrive at your door the next day.
If you want to try Apple’s Product Red phone before you buy, heading to the Apple Store is something that you’re probably going to want to do. However, keep in mind that though it’s now available for purchase online, it won’t actually be in stores until Friday, April 13.
The differences between the new color and the iPhone 8’s previous options are slim. It’s really just the red color that sets it apart – you’ll still get the same glossy, wireless charging-supporting phone. 
Interestingly, Apple opted for a black and red color combination instead of the perhaps more well-trodden white and red mixture.
In the UK the red iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are available from Apple , O2 , Vodafone and Virgin Mobile .

Rød iPhone 8 og iPhone 8 Plus kan bli annonsert i dag
I skrivende stund kan man kun få iPhone 8 og iPhone 8 Plus i sølv, gull og stellargrå, men det later til at Apple er i ferd med å legge til en fjerde farge. Det ryktes om en rød versjon som antageligvis blir annonsert i dag (mandag, 9. april).
Dette ifølge et notat som ble spredd internt i Virgin Mobile, men som MacRumors har fått tak i. 
Mer spesifikt er det snakk om en spesialutgave ved navn (PRODUCT)RED. Et fargevalg vi har sett tidligere fra Apple. iPhone 7 fikk samme behandling i fjor, så vi regner med at iPhone 8 får en like frisk rødfarge denne gangen.
En andel av salgsinntektene regner man med vil gå til den humanitære organisasjonen (RED), og dets AIDS-prosjekt. 
Rett rundt hjørnet
Ifølge ovennevnte notat vil denne røde utgaven av iPhone 8 bli lagt til i Virgin Mobiles sortiment umiddelbart etter den blir annonsert, så det er en viss mulighet for at den blir tilgjengelig for forhåndsbestilling i løpet av noen få timer. Det er dog fortsatt uklart hvor lenge vi må vente på å få telefonene i hende.
Man har heller ingen informasjon vedrørende pris, men vi forventer at den holder seg på samme nivå som de eksisterende fargene, siden det ikke er ventet noen forandringer på selve telefonen, kun fargen.
Selv om denne informasjonen ikke er blitt bekreftet, så er det gode grunner til å tro at dette stemmer. Det har gått rykter om en rød versjon av iPhone 8 tidligere, og Apple-korrespondent Mark Gurman tvitret for ikke så lenge siden at lanseringen av denne røde utgaven ville finne sted nå denne uken. 
Pussig nok nevner ikke notatet en rød versjon av iPhone X , ei heller en gullfarget variant. Sistnevnte har det svirret rykter rundt tidligere, og det har til og med versert bilder av utgaven.
Det kan derfor hende at vi må vente lenge på et slikt fargevalg, om det i det hele tatt er på vei, hvilket er synd, siden de eneste nåværende fargevalgene på Apples toppmodell er sølv og stellargrå.
