Chinese online retailers have started discounting iPhones for the second time this year as Apple faces a prolonged sales slowdown in the world’s largest smartphone market, according to Reuters.
Suning.Com Co says it will slash the price of the iPhone Xs by as much as 1,000 yuan ($148.95) from its official price. Suning had lowered the prices of other iPhone models in January along with other retailers, but those cuts excluded the iPhone Xs, notes Reuters.
Pinduoduo says it will sell the 64GB edition of the iPhone Xs for 6,999 yuan, a drop of over 1,000 yuan from the official price. Online retail giant JD.com plans to offer discounts on a range of Apple products, including the iPhone Xs and Xs Max, with models of the latter device selling at discounts of up to 1,700 yuan.
