US trade regulators have approved Apple Inc’s request to waive tariffs on Apple Watches from China, the US trade representative’s office said in a letter from Friday. The iPhone maker had filed for exclusion in October, requesting relief from the US rates of 15% that went into effect on September 1.
Apple & # 39; s wearables and accessories business, including Apple Watch, AirPods and HomePod, completed in the fiscal year ending Sept. 2019 sales of $ 24.5 billion, accounting for approximately 9.4% of total sales. The company’s shares last fell 2.3% to $ 223.89. The stock recovered some losses after a Nikkei report said iPhone assembler Foxconn had gathered enough workers to meet “seasonal demand” in all major Chinese factories.
