iPhone 6 Sales in China Win Over Sales in the US for the First Time

The report on Apple iPhone sales in the USA and across the world should be unveiled this week, still experts believe that the company will say its iPhone sales in China win over sales in the United States for the first time in its history.

The Cupertino-based giant used to sell more gadgets in its home market, but the launch of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus changed this since customers in China fell in love with the seventh generation iDevice. Besides, Apple has started an aggressive campaign in this Asian region and already opened a couple of new retail stores in China with more coming soon.

iPhone sales in the US being overtaken by Chinese sales are predicted by different analysts. They think that this happens because the iOS giant started to work in partnership with Chinese carrier China Mobile in 2014 and this deal opened the gate for a lot of new consumers. It is also believed that the bigger iPhone display attracted more potential buyers than it could have reached with the older smaller screens. People wish to own a bigger screen smartphone and they are eager to pay for it.

According to some predictions, the last quarter contains around 36 percent of sales in China and 24 percent of Apple iPhone sales in the USA. A year ago this situation was different with US making up 29 percent and China getting about 22 percent of total iOS cell phone sales.

The Chinese market is still dominated by local brands, such as Xiaomi and Lenovo, but Apple jumped into it with huge sales and set new records which should grow in the future since the company has plans to open 25 stores in China in 2015-2016.
