If you've been waiting to buy a new iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus because you don't like the current slate of colors, your wait might be over.

Apple, Inc.

Apple on Monday announced a new (Product)Red variant for each of the iPhone 8 models. The new color will be available for preorder starting tomorrow, April 10. In-store availability begins on Friday, April 13. A new (Product)Red leather folio case for the iPhone X will be available on Tuesday.

Apple has a long history of releasing (Product)Red variants of iPhones and accessories. A portion of each (Product)Red's sale goes to Global Fund HIV/AIDS to help with testing, treatment, and prevention programs.

Pricing remains unchanged for the Product(Red) models, starting at $699 for a 64GB iPhone 8 or $799 for a 64GB iPhone 8 Plus.

Unfortunately, there's still no word on when Apple will release its wireless charging pad, AirPower. The pad was first announced last September, alongside the iPhone 8 and iPhone X.
