The US Post office may be close to becoming an advertiser.

Apple said in a letter to the U.S. Trade Representative that tariffs will make some of its products, including the the Apple Watch and Mac Mini more expensive.

The Trump administration has imposed tariffs of $50 billion on imports from China.
