Apple has announced the availability date for its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus smartphones in China: October 17. The devices will be available at Apple’s retail stores, Apple authorized resellers and with all three major carriers: China Mobile, China Telecom and China Unicom. Both the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus will support China’s TD-LTE and FDD-LTE high-speed data networks.
Apple Inc.’s new iPhone 6 will go on sale in China on Oct. 17 after winning final approval from regulators who scrutinized the device’s security features amid rising concerns in the country about privacy. The move brings the iPhone 6 and the big-screen iPhone 6 Plus to China roughly one month after they went on sale in the U.S. and other countries. Apple is counting on the devices to help it maintain its edge in China, the world’s largest smartphone market but an increasingly tough battleground for both foreign and domestic companies. China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology issued the network access licenses to Apple’s new iPhones after the Cupertino, Calif., company addressed the privacy risks found in a government agency’s safety test, the regulator said Tuesday.
