2019 iPhones take huge price cut in China

iPhone XS

American manufacturing giant, Apple, has had a hard time selling its 2019 iPhones because they lack “real” innovation and are pretty expensive. Even the “cheap” iPhone XR costs $749 which can get you a top-class flagship Android phone. In order to boost sales, Apple reduced the prices of the iPhones although analysts believe that this is only a temporary solution to Apple’s poor sales. In China, multiple online stores are activating price cuts for the 2019 iPhones.
