on August 7, U.S. local time, Apple shares fell 2.27%. On August 9, Guo Mingzhen, an analyst at Tianfeng international, issued a research paper, saying that according to the administrative order, Apple may be forced to remove wechat from the global app store due to the prohibition of apple from doing business with wechat. However, due to the lack of a clear definition of the scope of the ban, it is also possible that the U.S. government only requires apple to remove wechat from the US app store. Among Apple’s hardware products, the iPhone is most affected by the US government’s blocking of wechat.
Guo Mingzhen predicts that under optimistic circumstances, Apple will only remove wechat from the app store in the United States. If this is the case, it will have a negative impact on wechat users in the United States. It is estimated that iPhone shipment will be reduced by 3% – 6%, while the annual shipment of other Apple hardware devices, including airpods, iPad, apple watch and MAC, will be reduced by less than 3%.
However, CITIC Securities believes that even if the policy of banning wechat in the United States is finally implemented, the scope of its prohibition is only in the United States rather than in the world. The sales share of Apple mobile phones in the United States is as high as 44%. It is difficult for us consumers to switch to other brands, which has a greater impact on the market sentiment of apple and related industrial chains.

But the outside world is optimistic about Apple’s new machine replacement cycle. CICC has previously pointed out that Apple’s innovation efforts and pricing strategies for the iPhone 12 are positive. From the perspective of the supply chain, the magnitude and timing of stock preparation tend to be optimistic. From the second half of 2020 to 2021, the iPhone 12 may bring the strongest iPhone cycle in recent years.
Apple’s delayed launch of iPhone 12 will delay the order. Previously, a person from a company in Apple’s iPhone supply chain told zhongzhengjun that the third quarter of last year was the peak period of Apple’s iPhone shipment, which is usually the peak season of Apple’s supply chain. Apple’s iPhone 12 has been delayed for several weeks this year, so orders for the iPhone supply chain in the third quarter of this year will be delayed. It is expected that the supply chain companies will have a good performance in the fourth quarter and the first quarter of next year.
CITIC Securities continues to be optimistic about China’s leading companies with large customer order taking ability and precision manufacturing ability, leading technology advantages, rich management experience and global layout in the industrial chain.
