Charles Lages (CharlesRagauss), the director of ExponentialETFs product management of the fund company, told first financial reporters: the Apples financial reports are very good, and the weak sales data are offset by the income of the service and the income of other products. IPhoneX sales and sales in the Chinese market have become the biggest focus of Apples earnings. In the second quarter, Apples revenue in the Greater China region reached $13 billion, unchanged from the European market, and increased by 21% over the same period last year.

According to the apple financial data, the average price of the iPhone Series in the global market rose to $796 from 655 US dollars in the same quarter last year, and the actual iPhone Series in domestic shipments did not increase. In the second and third quarter of 2018, it was also the two quarter of the apple product cycle. As the leading domestic manufacturers, such as HUAWEI, OPPO, vivo and millet, launched the flagship models, the iPhone series faced considerable challenges. Before the arrival of the 2018 new iPhone, the Apple needs to release new products, such as the lower price SE2. Or reduce channel prices to boost sales of iPhone products to prevent domestic manufacturers from nibbling their market share. However, Sino US trade friction is a potential threat to Apple Corp.
