Apple Hits A Purple Patch As iPhone 14 Sales Take Off

Apple’s iPhone 14 models went on sale in China on Friday, with the new deep purple models being well received.

The high-end iPhone 14 is priced the same as last year’s iPhone 13 models. In China, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are priced between 7,999 yuan (US$1,140) and 13,499 yuan.

Apple began pre-ordering the iPhone 14 last Friday, and customers could pick up their purchases today at Apple stores, which also provided delivery services.

According to the Shanghai-based platform that offers purchasing and delivery services, people on Dada’s platforms had paid 200 million yuan for an iPhone 14 by 2 p.m.

Scalpers sold the latest models outside Shanghai’s Apple store for at least 200 yuan more.

“Today, the price changes every minute. Certainly, the new purple models (Pro and Pro Max) are the most popular “According to a scalper who declined to be identified, Shanghai Daily.

Li Jun, a photography enthusiast from Shanghai, ordered a purple iPhone 14 Pro Max last Friday and expects it to arrive in October.

“I’m curious to see how far mobile photography can progress with the iPhone 14’s 48-megapixel camera,” said Li, who is currently using an iPhone 12 Pro Max.

On Apple China’s website, people must wait six weeks or more to get a purple iPhone 14 Pro, whereas a standard iPhone 14 is available in two working days.

Users of older iPhones can also get a trade-in offset of up to 5,500 yuan from Apple.

The new iPhone may alter the landscape of China’s high-end mobile phone market.

In July, smartphone sales in China fell 17.7 percent to 22.1 million units. According to CINNO Research, the top four brands all experienced year-on-year declines, while Apple, the No.5 player, experienced 6.5 percent growth.
