The commercial war of Trump with China will affect Apple

Starting from this Sunday, the AirPods, the Apple Watch, some iMac, HomePod and other products will be influenced by the rate of 15% in the context of the trade dispute in the course of the United States with China, reports Bloomberg.

The rates have been entered in the federal register and will take effect at 12:01 local time on Sunday in Washington, DC for products that come in the United States or are withdrawn from the warehouses to be used in the. country.

Apple devices that will be affected by the new rates include the straps for the Apple Watch and Apple Watch, AirPods, HomePod, some Beats headphones and some iMac. Bloomberg states that may be interested in the component repair for iPhone, as well as the NAND flash storage used in the iPhone.

The analyst of Apple Ming-Chi Kuo said at the beginning of August that he believes that Apple will absorb most of the costs of tariffs in the u.s. on its devices “in the medium term” rather than increase prices for consumers. The colossus of Cupertino has expanded its production facilities in countries such as India and Vietnam, which diversificheranno production beyond China, and lighten the fare.

The CEO of Apple, Tim Cook, has recently met with the president of the United States Donald Trump at the golf club to Trump at Bedminster, where, according to what was reported, Cook has talked about the rates, stating that these would put the company in a disadvantage with rivals such as Samsung. “I thought that he had done such a discussion is very convincing, so I'm not thinking about,“ said Trump to the journalists.

Apple in June also sent a letter to the Trump Administration in which he explained that the rates would reduce the contributions of Apple to the United States economy, and they would weigh on its global competitiveness. Trump could still decide to delay the rates or exempt Apple products before they enter into force, but recent tweets suggest that it is unlikely that this will happen.

Accessories such as power adapters, cables and cases are already subject to an import tax at the moment, separate from the new rate that mighty blow to the new Apple products on Sunday.

This rate will not affect you immediately on the iPhone, one of the most popular devices of the company, which is responsible for a large part of its revenue, until the 15 December because the rates on electronics such as smartphones and laptops have been delayed so as not to affect the christmas holiday shopping season.
