It is possible that the products from Apple, Fitbit and Sonos no longer fall under tariff codes in the $200 billion list, trade experts said. And some of the products have been replaced by newer models that could be classified differently.
The last option could prove hard due to the thousands of codes covered, said one former US trade official.
