China buys more iPhones than US for first timeStaff writer ▼ | January 9, 2015
Strong demand for Apple's latest iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus smartphones has helped the Chinese market outsell the United States for the first time, according to tech news hub pingwest.com citing a report from UBS.
Study According to USB analysis:
Apple only began selling iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus in the China market on Oct 17, but Chinese consumers' preference for larger sized phones made the devices the most popular sold in China. Orders reached 10 million within three days after the initial sell date on JD.com, a major e-commerce platform.
The UBS report estimates Apple sold 69.3 million iPhones in the last quarter of 2014, a new quarter record. ■
