From September 1, the United States increased by 15% the rate of customs duties on Chinese imports. So far, the increase concerns smart speakers, headphones, wearable electronics and shoes made in China. And from December 15, the States will again increase customs duties, but for larger electronics.
As already mentioned, all American companies cooperating with China will suffer from the increase in customs rates. Among them are Apple. The current increase will affect AirPods wireless headphones, Apple Watch smart watches, smart HomePod speakers and iMac all-in-ones. And the next increase in fees will already affect products such as iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple TV. According to experts, Apple will not raise prices for its products due to an increase in duties. Instead, she will take the full blow on herself and may lose about $ 500 million because of this.
