Apple’s rapid growth in China

Apple opens 14th Chinese mainland store in Hangzhou, in East China's Zhejiang province, since the company is experiencing its most rapid growth since it opened its first store in China in 2008. A report from UBS showed that strong demand for Apple's latest iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus smartphones had helped the Chinese market outsell the United States for the first time.
