Apple's iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launch and roll out went swimmingly with the handsets racking up over 10 million unit sales over their first three days on release. Apple will be delighted, but there was a problem with China, with the country not passing the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus to be sold in the country. That meant Cupertino was stripped of the chance of selling even more units by rolling out in the world?s biggest smartphone market.There is an upshot of that as Apple will now have a sizeable second wind for the iPhone 6 when it launched in China and inevitably sells millions more units. The device also launched in dozens more countries on the 26th September and it now seems as though the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are on the verge of getting a green light for China. This Chinese website had the following to say:
It is important that the person broke new iPhone prototype store shelves will be put on Oct. 7, and should be officially on sale in October 10. A few days ago the Ministry of Industry Minister Miao Wei once said in an interview, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus has entered the final stage of the audit, which means the phones will soon be landing in mainland China.Another good sign that the iPhone 6 is imminent in the country is the fact that the black market price of the handset is starting to fall. When the iPhone 6 launched a couple of weeks ago, some of the people buying the device were actually sending them back to China. Once in the country they would be sold for prices well above their mark up, with most quotes of around $4,000 for one iPhone 6. Those prices are now falling dramatically, so it seems the black market is cooling as the officially launch of the device approaches. source: TechWeb
