On August 18th, the curtain closed on JD’s annual Mobile Phone Festival with record-breaking sales. Many brands performed remarkably well during the festival. JD also upgraded its service package, which was greatly welcomed by customers. The fourth “Golden Mobile Phone Awards” held by JD was also announced on August 16th.

JD’s full-price trade-in service for iPhone products attracted many customers. Customers who opt into the program can buy the full-price trade-in version of iPhone, and have the chance to deduct the full price of the iPhone off the purchase of the next newly released model of iPhone. JD also provided coupons for Apple products: customers can save as much as RMB 2,500 yuan for iPhone 11 series phones, and iPhone SE was RMB 2899 yuan with coupons.  Additionally, sales of Apple Watch increased 158% YOY, and sales of Apple’s original accessories increased 154% YOY.
