Apple products may be more expensive in the United States

United States and China They are in the midst of such a trade war. tax increase to 1, another to c, and now Apple was forced to comment.

J a Reuters He said iPhones (in fact the phone category, one of the most imported from China to the US) have so far been spared, but if the $ 267 billion fee comes into play, they won't escape.

In a letter addressed to Office of U.S. Trade Representative (something like the US Trade Representative's Office), dated September 5, Apple asks the government to reconsider these measures and work to find other, more effective solutions that make the US economy and consumer stronger and healthier than they are.
