China Unicom’s iPhone sales remain bleak.
China’s iPhone sales have been weak for a few reasons. There’s an unofficial market that’s already sold plenty of iPhones. The official iPhone sold by China Unicom doesn’t have WiFi.
Earlier reports said China Unicom was on the hook to purchase five million iPhones from Apple over three years. Speaking with media outlets in Hong Kong, Xiaobing didn’t deny the reports, just saying they’re “not entirely accurate.”
He also said Unicom may rethink its marketing campaign.
