The Apple empire is shaken after two black days in the stock market. The Cupertino company’s stock lost more than 3% today on Wall Street, after already losing about 4% on Wednesday.

The reason for the decline in the stock market was the rumors that spread yesterday from China about the upcoming “iPhone ban”. Certainly not for all dragon citizens, at least for now.
