Apple will reportedly announce a red iPhone 8 on Monday

Apple will reportedly introduce a new color to its iPhone 8 and 8 Plus lineup on Monday: red. The new color is part of the company’s partnership with (RED), an advocacy group dedicated to combating HIV/AIDS in Africa.

MacRumors reports that it has viewed a memo from Virgin Mobile, which says that Apple will announce the phone option on Monday, April 9th. The memo reportedly notes that the phone will be available for preorder, but that it doesn’t specify if this will include an iPhone X edition.

Product Red was founded in 2006 by U2 frontman Bono and ONE Campaign activist Bobby Shriver, and it licenses its name to other private companies to highlight efforts to combat HIV/AIDS in eight African countries: Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Rwanda, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, and Zambia. Apple has released a number of special (RED) edition iPods, iPads, and cases over the years, and it released an iPhone 7 for the first time last year.
