The United States would exclude Apple and AirPods from the next tariff round imposed on Chinese goods.
If Bloomberg reports, the US government is expected to release its final listing Monday, revealing as much as $ 200 billion of Chinese products that will see a 10 percent rate.
In particular the Apple and AirPods, along with a number of other smartes and fitness trackers made by other brands were not seen on the list. It is unclear whether this applies to all generations of Apple, or just the Apple Series 4.
Interestingly, the now no longer used Time Capsule is on the list, as well as the HomePod and Beats & # 39; Apple headphones.
Apple seems to be running in a gray area with the US government. Apple CEO Tim Cook met and dined earlier this year with the president Trump and his wife, hoping that "quiet heads have the upper hand". Cook says the new rates only damage the economy, raise prices in the US and more.
Apple and other companies have written letters and made comments at the new rates.
