Cheaper iPhones Now Available in China
Apple’s new-generation iPhones are now more affordable in China, as the Cupertino-based tech giant has decided to lower prices by as much as 6 percent.
The discounts are the result of a tax change introduced in China and which lowers the value-added tax (VAT) for manufacturers from 16 percent to 13 percent.

As per CNBC, the iPhone XR now costs 4.6 percent less than before, so it can be purchased in China for 6,199 yuan ($922), down from 6,499 yuan ($967).
