The tariff was decided to be halved in February after the trade agreement with Beijing came into force. With the deal, the US reduced the tariffs applied to Apple Watch from 15 percent to 7.5 percent.
Imported from China, implemented by President Donald Trump administration; After this tariff affecting various Apple products, including Apple Watch, HomePod, Mac models and all headsets, Apple filed a petition to the US Trade Representative in November to exclude products from the tariff that made the goods imported in the U.S. more expensive. After the petition, it is now cheaper to import Apple's Apple Watch to the US.
