Apple starts delivering iPhone6 to China’s mainland

Apple Inc. began delivering its popular iPhone6 and iPhone6 Plus handsets to the Chinese mainland on Friday.

Customers can buy the smartphones from Apple’s online and retail stores as well as authorized retailers, including telecommunications companies and online home appliance companies such as JD.com.

The retail prices of the iPhone6 and iPhone6 Plus range from 5,288 yuan (861 U.S. dollars) to 7,999 yuan for different models.

The authorized release once again ignited iPhone fever in the company’s largest potential market as media reports said the number of orders hit a record high since pre-orders started on Oct. 10.

Apple released the iPhone6 and iPhone6 Plus in the Chinese mainland one month after its global debut.

Apple CEO Tim Cook said in a press event held earlier Friday morning Beijing Time that it is “the biggest iPhone launch ever” in China’s mainland, adding that it is also the first time the new gadget will be carried by all of China’s three mobile operators at the same time.

Referring to the two models of the new iPhone, Cook said, “I use both and I’m going back and forth. It’s the toughest decision I’ve ever made about an iPhone.”

Apple also unveiled a new line of iPads, the iPad Air 2, during the event in the United States. (End)
