The new iPhone 12 series which is Apple’s first 5G smartphones are doing so well in the market. In fact, due to its good performance, analysts believe that Apple will sell about 240 million iPhones this year. Nevertheless, not all the models in this series are doing well. Simply put, the cheaper models especially the iPhone 12 mini is not living up to expectation.
Generally, Apple is not a big fan of price cuts and discounts. However, with the intense competition in the Chinese market which almost crippled the iPhone 11 sales, the company had to learn how to give discounts, at least in China.
No doubt, China is enjoying the dividence of diversification as all OEMs want to please the Chinese market. Apple’s latest price-cut in China is for its latest iPhone 12 series. According to reports on JD.com., the iPhone 12 series welcomes the largest discount since its release. Presently, potential buyers of the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 can get up to 600 yuan ($92) price cut. This is the largest ever price cut for these devices since their release. However, this discount is available at JD.com and may not be active in other stores.
iPhone fans do not have to until autumn, now is a good time to act decisively. Furthermore, JD.com is also offering more price cuts on other Apple devices. For instance, the Apple AirPods headset worth 1,246 yuan ($190) is available for 799 yuan ($122).
After the 600 yuan ($92) discount on JD.com, the iPhone 12 64GB version can be purchased as low as 5699 yuan ($870). There are also preferential services such as free trial rights for new Apple Music users for 4 months.
According to the JD platform, users who purchase the iPhone 12 mini can also enjoy a preferential price cut of 600 yuan ($92). Even for the iPhone 12 mini sales, the AirPods still get the same 799 yuan ($122) price tag.
Fans who like small screen phones may not want to miss this opportunity. Some users believe that fans that buy smartphones early pay more for these devices. Well, this is true. There is a price for every thing that we get to enjoy. To be among the first users of a new device, there is a price to pay for it. When others are flaunting their one year old smartphone, you have a one one old smartphone. However, those who wait a few months, will enjoy the discounts.
