As soon as the news came out, the comment area of netizens exploded. Many netizens believe that Apple forbids offline iPhone 12 series to flow online is a naked price monopoly.
According to the survey launched by blue finance, so far, most of the netizens have chosen not to buy. Among the buyers, the majority still choose to buy online.
Yesterday (October 23), Apples new channel rules in the Chinese market was exposed on social platforms by some dealers, which required domestic channel distributors to voluntarily promise to sign an agreement before receiving iPhone 12 products. The agreement promises that all purchased machines (such as iphone12, 12pro, air4, iphone12mini, iphone12promax) will not flow to pinduoduo, tmall, Taobao, vipshop, Jingdong, Suning and other online channels and overseas markets, not limited to direct or indirect supply. If you violate the regulations, you need to pay a fine of 400000 yuan / set, and promise that when all purchased machines flow to non Apple authorized physical stores, machine sales must be activated on site to prevent someone taking the machine back to online sales. If you violate the regulations, you need to pay a fine of 400000 yuan / set. The commitment also requires that when selling new products such as iPhone 12 series and iPad air4, a deposit of RMB 50000 will be charged for each customer. If the deposit is transferred, it will be deemed that the above terms are agreed. If no abnormality is found within 15 days from the date of the first issue, the original guarantee will be returned.
Today (October 24), the relevant media to Apple upstream supply chain has been confirmed. Supply chain sources said, such a huge fine is 40 times the price of the iPhone 12, which shows that the measures are quite severe. Apple has done so mainly in view of the fact that in recent years, domestic e-businesses have frequently subsidized iPhones and sold them at reduced prices. For example, this years iPhone E2 was sold at a low price by two e-businesses as a weapon to compete for subsidies. The subsidized price was as low as 2799 yuan, 400 yuan or 15.2% lower than the official price of apple.
Apple is reorganizing its channels in the Chinese market to eliminate the arbitrary price reduction of its own products, so as to make better profits and keep the initiative in its own hands. According to a supply chain source, the pricing of Apple products in the domestic market has always been very casual. Apple gives a general price, and then some dealers begin to cut prices to obtain more sales through fleeing goods and other forms, so as to obtain subsidies from apple. In this case, Apples profits are not rising, and the rights and interests of some core distributors are also affected Strike.
According to people familiar with the matter, Apple has been thinking about channel adjustment in the Chinese market, but there is no better time. This time, with the launch of new products such as the iPhone 12, apple began to push forward new rules. In the final analysis, the pricing power of all products is in its own hands, while making profits, protecting the interests of dealers, so as to obtain better share growth.
For such a practice, another supply chain source also said frankly, the above commitment letter is real, and the reason for such commitment is that many e-commerce platforms reduce the price of iphone12, not Apples official price reduction, but the platforms own subsidies to attract users. The channels for these platforms to get goods are often resale through some channels, not from official channels.
The current situation is that after this policy is released, it will be very difficult for everyone to see the iPhone 12 series mobile phones with a sharp price reduction on the e-commerce platform. After all, a fine of 400000 yuan will be imposed on each phone, and businesses cant bear it. They will not easily resell Mobile phones and tablets to online channels.
At present, it is not clear how long Apple will strictly push forward the above-mentioned new regulations, but at least in the short term, we will not see that kind of arbitrary price reduction
Many people in the industry also believe that Apples new regulations in the Chinese market this year are actually very easy to understand. Many old users will have to change their machines. In the early stage, the supply must be less than the demand. Therefore, it is not allowed to reduce the price to make profits, while still maintaining its high-end brand image. On the other hand, Huaweis situation this year has made the iPhone 12 less difficult to sell, because the former is supplied It will be severely limited.

Industry insiders believe that the iPhone 12 series appears a new color blue, usually in the morning of the sale, the price of yellow cattle is at the highest level, and the yellow cattle will pay a high price for the new blue machine, especially the iPhone 12 Pro that cannot be purchased on site on the same day, but then the range of scalpers price increase will be narrowed.
