This Is the (PRODUCT)RED iPhone X Plus We Need

We weren't able to walk away with the new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.

The move follows last December's admission by Apple that it is slowing down older models of the iPhone, claiming it was in an effort to prevent random shutdowns.

Personally, I would absolutely buy a (PRODUCT) RED iPhone X, as long as it was available on launch day alongside the other colors.

Chemical weapons experts to inspect attack site in Syria
UN Security Council failed to adopt a Russian-drafted resolution on inquiry into chemical weapons use in Syria on Tuesday. The United States has about 2,000 troops on the ground in Syria to support local militias fighting the Islamic State.

LA prosecutors review Kevin Spacey sexual assault accusation
The news comes almost six months after Spacey was accused of making a sexual advance on actor Anthony Rapp when Rapp was only 14. Rapp first told The Advocate about the incident in 2001, but didn't mention Spacey's name.

Basebrawl Breaks Out After Luis Perdomo Throws Behind Nolan Arenado
There were no tridents* thrown during the Padres-Rockies bench-clearing brawl on Wednesday, but boy, it escalated quickly. Perdomo then ducked one Arenado punch and backpedaled toward third base as Arenado chased and swung again.

The special edition iPhone will be available to order online tomorrow and in stores beginning Friday, April 13 with prices starting at $699 for the 64GB model. I wasn't a big fan of the white faceplate on the 7; in fact, I bought a dumb screen protector to try to get this same look.

Released on March 29, the software update is allegedly making screens unresponsive if they have been replaced by third party repairers. The world's most popular camera is better still and wireless charging brings a powerful capability to iPhone. iPhone 8 Plus features dual 12-megapixel cameras and introduces 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. That allows for wireless charging, but it also means you'll pick up more fingerprints - even in this red color. The new phone, with its stunning red finish, is seriously hot. In sunlight, it's a vivid candy red.

Apple is celebrating its new iPhones color with a Product Red leather folio for the iPhone X - the only phone that won't be dipped in red. In the meantime, noted tech reviewer and YouTube personality Marques Brownlee was provided with a review unit to take Apple's somewhat new iPhone for a spin. And just to head off any confusion, though they look black in some of these shots (due to lighting), the Apple logo and iPhone / Product RED text are silver. They'd sell more, and existing iPhone 8 owners wouldn't be stuck with that "welp, I wish I had the red one" feeling.
