Shopping activities take place busy even though only a few steps from the Apple Store.
While people in many countries around the world are still waiting to get their hands on the iPhone 14, in Hong Kong (China), buying an iPhone 14 is as easy as “buying vegetables”, as long as you have enough money. .
Since the end of last week, Hong Kong users have been holding iPhone 14. However, many people who bought iPhone early have chosen to resell right outside the genuine Apple Store to make a profit.
At Apple Store Causeway Bay on September 16, locals lined up long before opening time (8am). They were the first people in Hong Kong to get their hands on an iPhone 14.

According to HK01, iPhone buyers at genuine stores show no sign of jostling. Employees will distribute iPhone in batches, each batch of 100 units.

As noted by HK01, this year’s iPhone 14 “speculation” situation in Hong Kong is busier than last year. Many people who have not yet warmed up the device have stayed outside the Apple Store to resell it to those who have money but do not have time to queue or pre-order.
Some even opened counters selling dozens of iPhones. The resale price of 256 GB iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max is about 165 USD more expensive than the genuine store (~ 4 million VND). The larger the memory samples, the higher the difference.
People looking to buy an iPhone for resale have plenty of options right outside the Apple Store.
If you don’t want to stand on the roadside, those who want to own an iPhone soon can also look to “black markets” like Xianda Plaza. The most “expensive” iPhone models like the iPhone 14 Pro Max will have a price difference of about 150 – 250 USD.
