The newest version of the iPhone 8 does justice to the Apple name while also doing good for humanity. On Monday, Apple announced the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus (Product)Red Special Edition. The latest in a long line of (Product)Red editions from Apple, a portion of every sale of these blazing red phones go to the Global Fund’s HIV and AIDS grants, with Apple donating more than $120 million dollars since 2006.

It’s not just the rear of the phone getting a makeover. Look closely and you’ll see that the iPhone 8 (Product)Red Special Edition swaps the standard model’s white front out for a slick black sheen, too.
