Apple’s Red iPhone 8 series could make its bow later today

Do you love the colour red? If you’re a bull and deeply vested in the Apple ecosystem, the company might make purchasing an iPhone 8 a little more worthwhile on Monday.

Rumours — stemming from an internal Virgin Mobile memo — suggests that a Red iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus could make their debut later today.

According to AppleInsider, the memo suggests that Virgin will have stock of the devices as soon as the announcement breaks, but phones may only be available the following month.

Notably, the notch-screen dual-camera iPhone X is not mentioned.

Although the Red variant looks pretty damn snazzy, it also serves a philanthropic purpose.

Red, or (Product)Red, is a brand that raises funds to combat HIV/AIDS in African countries through partnerships with the likes of Apple, Nike and Starbucks. A portion of the Red iPhones’ sales fee goes towards this purpose.

The previous Red iPhone debuted in South Africa in April 2017, retailing for R13 499.
