Apple held an online conference earlier and announced 4 5G iPhone 12 series mobile phones, priced from 5999 yuan to 11899 yuan. Although many analysts are bearish on the sales of the iPhone 12 series, coupled with tensions between China and the United States, mainland netizens also threatened to stop buying the iPhone in favor of the domestic mobile phone brand Huawei. However, after the iPhone 12 started accepting orders in China last night (16th), the response was so overwhelming that Apple was “dead.” All e-commerce platforms were also sold out and sold out quickly.
At 8 o’clock last night, the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro models in the iPhone 12 series were open for pre-order on various e-commerce platforms in the Mainland. But shortly after the beginning, Apple’s flagship store on Tmall and JD’s self-operated flagship store showed “out of stock.” Even though Apple’s official website can still place orders, the visits to the website and the purchase process have been stuck. Many netizens denounced that “the official website is broken”, “I can’t squeeze in at all”, “buy a mobile phone for an hour”, “have a card, swipe It’s been a long time” and so on.
The mainland media “Interface News” pointed out that as of 6 pm on the 16th, the number of reservations for Suning Tesco’s iPhone 12 series has exceeded 1.45 million, of which iPhone 12 pre-orders exceeded 920,000 and iPhone 12 Pro reached 520,000. The report also pointed out that data from multiple sources showed that some mobile phone models could not be placed within one minute of placing the order. At present, Apple’s official website has restricted purchases, and each model is limited to two purchases per person.
