China Sells More iPhones Than America
Big news and news that may be quite surprising to many of you is that China Sells More iPhones Than America. Apple is said to have sold 69.3 million iPhone units in Q4 of last year and China have accounted a whopping 35% of sales worldwide. If this account is accurate then it would also mean that the iPhone market in China has surpassed America to become the biggest for Apple.
It is investment company UBS that have provided the latest statistics and they are an indication of new records for Apple’s smartphone sales after the launch of the hugely successful iPhone 6 and 6 Plus last September. UBS analyst Steven Milunovich said “China Mobile’s distribution agreement with Apple was signed in late-December 2013 and Apple began shipping the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in October. So it seems reasonable that demand in China surged relative to other regions.”
