Virgin Mobile UK Says Apple Will Announce (PRODUCT)RED Edition iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus on Monday

iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus models in a limited edition (PRODUCT)RED color will be unveiled as early as tomorrow, according to an internal memo distributed to Virgin Mobile employees in the UK and obtained by MacRumors. (PRODUCT)RED edition iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus Virgin Mobile UK states that it will add the new smartphone models to its inventory system on Monday, April 9, coinciding with a launch announcement from Apple, which would likely be in the form of a press release. The memo doesn't mention a (PRODUCT)RED edition iPhone X, so there might not be one. The memo notes that there will be pre-orders, so it's unclear if the new color would be available immediately or begin shipping later in April, but it does appear that Apple will introduce the models this week. The information lines up with rumors about new red-colored iPhones from both Rosenblatt Securities analyst Jun Zhang and Steve Hemmerstoffer, who leaks information about mobile devices through his Twitter account OnLeaks. Ben Geskin also said the new color might be (PRODUCT)RED, after initially saying Blush Gold. Mark Gurman, a very reliable Apple reporter at Bloomberg News, has also corroborated this story in a follow-up tweet. Indeed should be this week.

Mobile Hotspot is available for an additional $10 per month, providing up to eight tethered devices with a dedicated allotment of 10GB of high-speed data to share each month. Unlimited calls to Mexico and Canada, and unlimited worldwide text messaging, can also be added for $5 per month.
