China's consumers are increasingly favoring their domestic brands after the U.S. stepped up its action against Huawei, the paper said. The article cited a few anecdotes where people switched to Huawei smartphones from their beloved iPhones to show their support for the country and Chinese brands.
"It's kind of embarrassing to pull an iPhone out of your pocket nowadays when all the company executives use Huawei," Sam Li, who works at a state-owned telecom company in Beijing, told the South China Morning Post. He added his company offers employees a Huawei discount.

Apple, a big player in China, is sitting in the crossfire of the tit-for-tat tariffs between the U.S. and China. Its China business accounted for more than 17% of its sales in its fiscal second quarter and the company sells billions of dollar worth of iPhones in China every year.
Now the anti-Apple sentiment in China is creating more headaches for the tech giant, which is already suffering from the slowing iPhone demand. Shares of Apple have tumbled more than 13% in the past month as trade tensions intensified. The U.S. hiked tariffs on $200 billions worth of Chinese goods earlier in May. China retaliated by raising duties on $60 billion worth of U.S. imports to as high as 25%.

The trade worries have prompted many Wall Street analysts to cut their projections for Apple. HSBC reduced its price target on the tech giant to $174 per share from $180, while Credit Suisse also said Apple's earnings per share would drop by about 15 cents a share for every 5% drop in greater China sales
