The Trump administration delayed a 10% tariff on some Chinese-made products on Tuesday. Apple Inc.’s iPhone was one of the main beneficiaries of the move, but other tech gadgets weren’t so lucky.

Here’s a rundown of which technologies got the temporary reprieve and what offerings will still get hit:

Tariffs delayed until December 15:

  • Telephones for cellular networks or for other wireless networks. That means iPhones and other many other smartphones assembled in China
  • Portable automatic data processing machines, not over 10 kg, consisting at least a central processing unit, keyboard and display. That covers laptops and tablets, including MacBook, iPads and iPod touch devices
  • The Apple TV box and Roku video-streaming devices
  • External computer monitors
  • Computer keyboards
  • Wired headphones
  • Remote control gear for video game consoles.

Tariffs effective September 1:

  • Base stations: This typically means cellular networking gear
  • Semiconductor media, solid state non-volatile storage devices. This may cover Nand flash, which is the key storage media in the iPhone and other smartphones
  • Lithium-ion batteries and battery cases
  • Machines for the reception, conversion and transmission or regeneration of voice, images or other data. This covers products such as the Apple Watch, AirPods, HomePod and some Beats headphones
  • Parts of telephone sets; parts of other apparatus for the transmission or reception of voice, images or other data, including apparatus. This may include repair parts for iPhones and other handsets
