As detailed by Bloomberg, Apple’s most recent conventional requests look for another round of exceptions, this time for iPhone parts, AirPods, Apple Watch, and more from the current 15% obligations.

Apple has had hit and miss achievement getting the US Trade Representative’s office to endorse tax waivers for its items and components that are made in China.

For instance, Trump initially said Apple wouldn’t get any relief for Mac Pro components however 10 waivers ended up being affirmed in September. Notwithstanding, toward the finish of September, the rest of the requests for Mac Pro waivers were denied.

Presently, Apple has submitted more official requests to the US Trade Representative’s office requesting exclusion from the 15% taxes as of now hitting its Apple Watch, iMac, and a portion of its iPhone components. Requests were made for an aggregate of 11 products as well as components.

With respect to the reasoning for the requests, Apple says it can’t discover another source for these products/components.

“In its requests for tariff waivers, the Cupertino, California-based company said it hasn’t identified a source outside of China that is able to meet U.S. demand for the products or components in the coming year. An Apple spokesman declined to comment Friday.”
