Reported by the South China Morning Post, the iPhone 11 in China is seeing some price cuts on several Chinese e-commerce websites in an attempt to boost demand and sales. They report:

Apple fans in China can now pick up an iPhone for just US$700 on some ecommerce sites. That might be on par with the starting price in the US, but it’s a huge discount for China. On JD.com, the 64GB version of the basic iPhone 11 now costs 4,999 yuan (US$708), 500 yuan (US$70) cheaper than the original price. The more expensive iPhone 11 Pro has an even steeper price cut that shaves off 1,200 yuan (US$170). And the top-tier iPhone 11 Pro Max is selling for a whopping 1,600 yuan (US$227) off.

The price cuts aren’t represented by Apple themselves on any of their platforms and only on sites such as JD.com, Suning, and Guomei. This news isn’t a huge surprise as a Strategy Analytics report this week highlighted how 1 in 3 customers in China arent buying a new phone anytime soon because of COVID19.
