    We knew they were coming... Apple is genius, they release the red phones later on in the year to boost up sales numbers.
    Not genius enough to get an X released in red. There would be more demand for that.

    Give it a bit... I say June for red X's so there is a gap between the X's and the new X's in September

    I just don’t see them releasing a new color 3 months before iPhone event.

    I’d trade my Silver for a Red anytime!

    They would have created that gap from now. The X isn't going to be released in any additional new colors, in my opinion.

    Me too if they made a red X. I did switch to a red 7 plus last year when it released but no way I could downgrade from an X just to get red. No way.

    Definitely. I’d miss my X way too much!

    Since Xfinity Mobile is selling red iPhone 8 Pluses, I may pick one up on DPP.

    Same here.

    Ditto. I'll always prefer a white face iPhone over the black one.

    I already have a gold 8 Plus, and see no reason to get a red one.

    I have a new 256 GB gold 8 plus still within the 14 day return window at Best Buy. So tempted to swap for the Red. I figure I would only be out $35 restocking fee and my time (which is in short supply). I have to decide in the next couple of days..... so tempted..... convince me?!?

    I would swap even if $35 fee. This phone is hot looking. I mean hot. I wish they did this for the X.

    Hot indeed. I watched a couple of unboxing videos and this phone looks absolutely dope with a capital D. The way the glass back accentuates the red color with Apples deep layering process is nothing short of beautiful. Can’t wait to get my delivery on Friday and see it with my own eyes.

    I sincerely hope Apple shows some Product (RED) love to the X before the fall event.

    Considering iPhone event is likely in 5 months, I doubt it. If they were going to release it for the X they would have now. They won’t release it 3 months before iPhone event. It had to be now.

    True, but it's nice to have dreams. Well, maybe Apple will give the Red treatment to the X successor next Spring, or at intro. They listened to consumers about the black front plate this time, maybe they will listen again about the timing for the next iteration.

    I think Apple will keep red as a mid year color refresh. To help boost sales the 2nd half of the phone cycle.

    Funny... I wanted the gold one for so long before I took the plunge. Had a perfectly good space grey iphone 8 and finally caved and got the 8+.

    I saw Rene's video on the Red 8/8 Plus and he mentioned that they probably didn't make it in the X because it may have been difficult to achieve the right tone of red on the stainless steel. That makes a lot of sense to me.

    That, indeed, makes a lot of sense. Especially versus aluminum!
