iPhone 8 in PRODUCT(RED) finish available from April 10

Apple’s annual rite of tribute and flamboyance has come to pass once again as it has unveiled a PRODUCT(RED) color for the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. For the first time, the new finish will be available in both base 64GB and premium 256GB variants at their usual $699 and $799, respectively — last year’s red iPhone 7 was only available on the 128GB version.

A new iPhone X Leather Folio in the PRODUCT(RED) hue will be available for $99 and will join other RED-ized items like the Beats Solo3, Beats Pill+, Apple Watch bands and others.
