In China, because of Huawei, they declared a boycott of Apple

As a result of the trade war with the United States, China announced a boycott of Apple and called for a switch from iPhones

for products from a domestic manufacturer.

What is the hype?

US President Donald Trump signed a banAmerican telecommunications companies to purchase foreign equipment that could be a potential threat to national security. In addition, they want to blacklist Huawei and prohibit it from purchasing parts and components from American suppliers without a special license from the government.

So what now?

После этого китайцы объявили бойкот Apple and on social networks they are calling to refuse the products of this company. “The features in Huawei smartphones are comparable to the Apple iPhone or even better. “We have such a good alternative for smartphones, so why are we still using Apple gadgets?” - writes one Weibo user.

Others call for a boycott not onlyApple, but also other American companies, including chipset manufacturer Qualcomm. “Trump doesn't allow companies to use Huawei, then let's not use Apple. We shouldn’t buy any phone that uses Qualcomm,” they suggest on social networks.

Let us remind you that the same story happened at the end of the pastyear, and also because of the USA and Huawei. At that time, Chinese enterprises encouraged and sometimes forced employees to abandon Apple gadgets and switch to Huawei products. For this, they reimbursed part of its cost, and sometimes the entire amount.

As a result, in the last quarter of 2018, Apple's sales in China decreased by 20%, but Huawei's figures increased by almost 25%.
