Apple in China
Apple in China 2015 - The App Store has doubled in China in the past year, and Chinese developers have made $2.5 billion in revenue in the past year from the App Store. Apple’s online store revenue has tripled in the last year.
And it’s not just the iPhone that’s doing well for Apple in China: Mac sales were up 31 percent and the iPad had its best quarter ever there, both in markets that are projected to be down overall. “Once again, bucking the tide,” as Cook said. “Everything you look at in China was extremely good.”
China’s a vitally important market, and Apple is giving it the attention it deserves. Sometimes it seems like using the word country to describe China does us all a disservice, because China’s population is enormous. It’s nearly twice that of all of Europe. It’s more than four times the population of the United States.
