2020 has come to an end, and this year’s flagship model has been released. The most amazing one is the Huawei Mate40 series. So far, everyone is still hard to find. Then there is the iPhone12 series, but the 12 series is on sale from the release. The date is really long, but from the feedback from netizens, it seems that various problems continue. A mobile phone is basically the only one that is popular every day. Is the 12 series really good?
You may remember that when the iPhone 12 first went on sale, Apple took a series of strict measures that it had never seen before in order to stabilize the price. At the beginning, it did work well. Almost none of the relevant sources of goods went to unauthorized channels, but everyone with a discerning eye It can be seen that this restriction can only be temporary, and it will certainly arouse user disgust over time. This is not what Apple wants to see, so after insisting on it for a period of time, iPhone 12 is already on the shelves of third-party stores.
As a popular mobile phone product this year, the high price of the iPhone 12 series has made many consumers hesitant. PDD has already included the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 in tens of billions of subsidies in order to bring benefits to consumers. Recently, the official PDD page shows that the tens of billions of subsidies continue to increase, and the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max have also been included in the tens of billions of subsidies.
The iPhone 12 Pro official website starts at 8499 yuan, the PDD starts at 8099 yuan, the iPhone 12 Pro Max official website price is 9899 yuan, and the current price is 8899 yuan, both lowered by 400 yuan. In contrast, the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 have a higher price cut, both of which have been reduced by 800 yuan. The current starting price of the iPhone 12 mini has reached 4699 yuan. The unwelcomeness of the mini version also indicates a price reduction, and Double 12 is coming, the last wave of discounts at the end of the year is definitely not small. Some people predict that the price of iPhone 12 min may drop to early 4,000 in Double 12, such as Speaking of receiving double 300 coupons for a limited time, the price is directly reduced to 4399. With the style of PDD, this kind of price reduction is indeed possible.
In addition, the MacBook series equipped with the latest Apple M1 chip is also within the scope of this subsidy.
Up to now, whether it is Apple’s flagship store on Tmall’s official website or JD’s self-operated Apple flagship store, the price of the iPhone 12 series has not been reduced, especially from Apple. The iPhone 12 Pro series models are even out of stock. In a certain number of platforms, the iPhone 12 Pro series has added tens of billions of subsidies, which seems to mean that Apple has a lot more supplies.
Of course, most consumers still remain skeptical. After all, many platforms are hundreds of thousands cheaper than other platforms. Is it reliable to buy iPhone 12 on this platform? Can I enjoy Apple’s after-sales service? In fact, when Xeduo initiated the first tens of billions of subsidies for iPhone 12, Apple customer service staff once said, “Apple’s preferential activities should be based on the information on the official website. Xeduo is not our authorized dealer, it should be its own business. Its coupons are different from Apple’s official website.”
Therefore, whether to buy iPhone 12 on a certain number of platforms depends on personal wishes. According to some netizens, “the things you buy on this platform are exactly the same as those bought on the official website, there is no difference, and you can save hundreds of dollars”, but some netizens said, “I’m wondering where the goods come from. Could it be the machine returned by the official website?”.
All in all, it is exciting to add 10 billion subsidies to the entire iPhone12 series, after all, it is hundreds of dollars cheaper than the official website. So, will you choose to start iPhone12 on this platform?
Also worth mentioning today is the latest statement from foreign sources that the basic situation of the iPad mini 6 has been finalized. Including the power button integrated with Touch ID fingerprint recognition, dual speakers in landscape mode, USB-C interface, 12 million pixel wide-angle camera, support for the second-generation Apple Pencil, etc. iPad mini 6 is an 8.3-inch display with a body thickness of only 5.9mm (same as iPad Pro 4).
In addition, today I want to focus on that, before, Apple was involved in an alleged incident, that is, updating the system did not inform iPhone users that it would reduce the speed of the mobile phone processor, and was sentenced to compensate 740 million yuan.
Of course, there are no Chinese users among the compensated iPhone users.
There is one thing to say, this is really not that Apple treats our users differently. The key is that our Chinese iPhone users have not accused Apple of this matter, so it is not our turn to compensate Chinese iPhone users.
And just after this incident of compensation of 740 million yuan, Apple was involved in a new storm.
This is not just recently. According to foreign media reports, the Italian antitrust regulator (Autorità Garante della Concorrenza e del Mercato, referred to as AGCM) has fined Apple 10 million euros ($12 million) because of Apple’s presence in the country. There are improper business practices in iPhone marketing.
Specifically, Apple is accused of misleadingly claiming in promotional messages how long the iPhone can be immersed in water without damage. Apple’s iPhone8, iPhone8Plus, iPhone XR, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone11, iPhone11Pro and iPhone11Pro
In Max-related marketing materials, Apple stated that its iPhone is waterproof at a depth of 1-4 meters and can last up to 30 minutes, depending on the model.
AGCM criticized Apple in its press release for not being clear enough about water resistance. The Italian regulator stated that the information did not clarify that these statements are only valid under certain conditions, such as during controlled laboratory tests using static and purified water, and not under normal consumer conditions. Regulators also questioned Apple’s warranty terms, which do not cover damage caused by liquids. The authorities believe that it is inappropriate to implement “radical” business regulations characterized by “water resistance”.
In addition, the official version of iOS 14.3, which can repair the “green screen door” of Apple’s iPhone 12, is expected to be released within the next two weeks.
Finally, what Mingmei Wuxian wants to say is: Of course, there are also many fans who follow me commenting and leaving messages about the many problems with Apple’s iPhone 12. It can be said that our domestic fans cannot be like foreign media consumers. Hard gas. Therefore, such issues as compensation are generally on our side and don’t even think about it for the time being. Our majority of apple fans should honestly wait for the arrival of the latest official version of Apple’s system!
