iPhone prices in China are slashed – again.
Large e-commerce sites, including Tmall and JD.com, already lowered the phone's prices twice this year. Now the cuts become an official approval mark – on Apple's own website.
Apple has for the first time this year fallen prices on the iPhone at its official Chinese site.

The prices of Apple's website are still not lower than they are in some e-commerce sites, as the price tag for the iPhone X models drops by as much as 2,000 yuan last month among lukewarm phone sales in China.
