Currently, a few communication banks have published quotations, and it is obviously in the product clearance stage; as for the iPhone 14 series, the price is relatively stable.
Zhang Lian, the editor-in-chief of the “SOGI Mobile King” website, said that with the iPhone 15 series having been on the market for more than a month, most models are no longer out of stock, and prices have dropped significantly. Some models have even seen price reductions of more than 10% in a single month. . This phenomenon is related to the fact that in the early days of the new phone’s launch, the quotation published by communication stores was higher than the recommended selling price. However, with the stable supply, this situation no longer occurs, which means that consumers can now buy better Apple products in communication stores. The iPhone 15 series is priced lower on the official website.
