Chinese New Year Gift Guide
To clarify, Apple does not have discounts on the Chinese Gift Guide. The page only serves as a display of products that Apple believes many Chinese would love during the holiday. iPhone Xs starts at RMB 8,699, and iPhone Xs Max is RMB 9,599.
The page also shows off the Apple Watch Series 4, among other accessories for iPhone, iPad Pro, and Apple Watch Series 4.
Apple took the Chinese New Year Gift Guide as an opportunity to launch a New Year’s Special Edition of the Beats Solo3 Wireless Headphones in Silver Wing Grey. The Beats Solo3’s are equipped with the Apple W1 chip for “battery life of up to 40 hours, and Fast Fuel technology for 3 hours of continuous playback for 3 hours.” The headphones retail for RMB 2,268.
