China's economy isn't the problem, says Trump's Commerce Secretary about Apple
While Ross did admit that the ongoing trade talks between the two countries have undeniably affected China’s economy negatively, he appears to believe Apple hasn't been hit that hard by the situation.
Ross didn’t directly confirm his personal thoughts on the matter, but he did seem to suggest Apple’s weak performance is down to other factors. One of these could be the company’s pricing strategy. After all, over the past couple of years, the Cupertino giant has significantly raised prices.
In developed markets such as the US and Europe, this new pricing strategy hasn’t affected sales drastically. But in countries such as China and India, justifying the price of an iPhone is much harder when equally as good Android devices are available to purchase at lower prices.
