| “iPhone 8 Apple” or “Apple iPhone 8” or “apple.com iPhone X” |
Any of the above search will return thousands of results and most of those would not be from apple.com

This will give results only from apple.com, and the number of search result will be reduced in a huge number,so you get what you want in a very short time.
