When Apple announced the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, China, one of the companies largest markets was off the list of countries that would get the handset on launch day.
The reason that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are not launching in China tomorrow, is because Apple has not received the necessary regulatory approval to get the device launched.
According to a recent report, Apple needs three separate licenses to launch the new iPhone 6 models in China, it has already obtained two of these, so it just has one more to go.
When Apple will get approval for the final license it needs remains to be seen, hopefully this can be sorted quickly, as sales of both devices in China would add significant numbers to Apple’s iPhone sales figures.
Apple previously partnered with China Mobile, and the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are expected to launch with the carrier, when Apple gets the approval it needs.
As soon as we get some more details on exactly when Apple’s latest iPhone handsets will be launching in China, we will let you guys know.
