 Struggling to stay afloat in China: RT’s Boom Bust on rivals taking a bite out of Apple
US tech giant Apple has cut prices of various iPhone models in one of the world’s hottest smartphone markets, China, by 300 to 500 yuan (about $44 to $75).

RT’s Boom Bust notes that more affordable smartphone models from rival local firms, including Huawei, seem to be gaining a strong foothold.

The Trump administration’s trade fights have added to Apple’s misfortune, threatening to snap the company’s globalized supply chain, creating uncertainty and pushing up the price of inputs.
