iPhone shipments to China fall by 35 percent in anticipation of new tariffs that could add as much as $70 to price
iPhone shipments to China fell by 35 percent in November, the second straight month of double-digit declines in the country compared to the same periods the previous year.
According to a new report from Credit Suisse analyst Matt Cabral, the total iPhone shipments since the release of the iPhone 11 on September 20, 2019 are down more than seven percent compared to the same period in 2018.
These declines have come at the same time as the Chinese smartphone market has continued to growth, though at a slower rate than in the past.
Analysts estimate that these additional tariffs could raise the price of iPhones in China by as much as $70.
A base-level iPhone 11 with 64GB of storage costs around $775, or 5,499 yuan, while the same model currently costs $699 in the US.
Apple has seen declines in Chinese shipments throughout the year, something that some analysts had expected the launch of the iPhone 11 to reverse.
In the second quarter of 2019, Apple’s shipments to China declined by fourteen percent, while its smartphone market share in the country went from 6.4 percent to 5.8 percent.
In an October earnings call, the company announced record breaking $64billion in revenue in spite of a nine percent decline in iPhone sales.

I have an iPhone 7 and I have absolutely no desire to upgrade my phone. It does the EXACT same thing as every other phone and is perfectly efficient for my needs.

Why ship them something that they make there? Is Apple getting them sent to the States for quality assurance before selling them anywhere?

iPhones were a sign of prestige in Ch1na. Now, Ch1nese are not only ditching iPhones but also Samsung Galaxy and going with Huawei Mate 30 Pro and P30 pro both of which have better cameras than iPhone and Samsung, were the first phones to include reverse wireless charging and show their nationalistic pride as well. Trump's us vs them, USA vs Ch1na also hasn't helped. And just like before, if Donald Trump does threaten any US company including Google and Microsoft from doing business with Ch1na again, Huawei has its Harmony OS ready to roll out replacing Google Android and even Microsoft Windows for desktop and laptops. Donald Trump making Ch1na great again.
在中国，iphone是声望的象征。现在，中国人不仅抛弃了iPhone，还抛弃了三星Galaxy，转而选择华为Mate 30 Pro和P30 Pro，这两款手机的摄像头都比iPhone和三星的好，是第一批带有反向无线充电功能的手机，同时也彰显了他们的民族自豪感。如果唐纳德·特朗普再次威胁包括谷歌和微软在内的美国公司，不让他们和中国公司做生意，华为已经准备好推出其鸿蒙操作系统，以取代谷歌的安卓系统，甚至是取代台式机和笔记本电脑的微软Windows系统。唐纳德·特朗普让中国再次伟大。
