The red smartphones, available in 64GB and 256GB models, start at $699 and $799, respectively.
The latest update killed the touch functionality of iPhone 8 phones, pretty much screwing a lot of third-party fix companies over. The iPhone 8 Plus features dual 12MP cameras, which are capable of taking photos in Portrait mode with Portrait Lighting, bringing dramatic studio lighting effects to iPhone, allowing customers to capture stunning portraits with a shallow depth of field effect in five different lighting styles. The 256GB RED iPhone 8 Plus will be available at $949. The reception of the public to these special iPhone red variants has been positive, with last year's red iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus raking in a total profit of $30 million. In March of past year, Apple also did the same with its iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

Unfortunately, the red version is not available for Apple's most popular phone now, the iPhone X. While it would have made sense for that to be announced alongside the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus in red, it's possible Apple is saving it for a bit later.
If you think third-party screen replacement is a major issue on iPhone 8 alone, you're mistaken. The RED iPhone 8 and 8 Plus have joined the Silver, Gold, and Space Gray colors. Unsurprisingly, Apple, as before, seems to have found a way to discourage that practice by disabling touch functionality on iPhone 8 units running the latest iOS 11.3 whose screens have been repaired and replaced by unauthorized third-parties.
Apple has had a partnership with (RED) for 11 years now and has raised more than $160 million for HIV/AIDS support programs.
Apple unveiled RED special edition of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus along with its matching accessories. Phones that were repaired using aftermarket parts faced similar issues when it was time to update the device's operating system.
