After the riots that occurred in China during the official launch of iPhone 4S, Apple has created a new booking system, already used for the launch of the iPad Mini. This, of course is to avoid the madness that occurred a few months ago.
Some of you may remember, when in January of this year, the crowd prevented Apple to open store in Sanlitun , and for this reason, the Cupertino company decided to postpone the launch of the iPhone 4S in Beijing and Shanghai .
The pre-orders for the iPhone 5 made by the Chinese telecom operator China Unicom were about 300,000, a sign of strong demand. Considering that the iPhone 4S, at the time of its launch in mainland China, could be “purchased” by a single operator, while the iPhone 5 can be purchased with two operators: China Telecom and China Unicom.
Just China Unicom continues to record orders for the iPhone 4S. This is obviously a sign of strong demand for Apple products in China. Gene Munster, according to his estimate, says that Apple will sell about 45 million iPhones in the December quarter, and definitely 4/5 million will be the Chinese!
