Apple Wins Final Approval for iPhone 4S Release in China

Apple has finally got a last level approval from Chinese regulators for iPhone 4S release in the region. This last level approval was a prerequisite for iPhone 4S to go on sale in the country.

The Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology granted the required network access permit to Apple, clearing the last obstacle that had restricted Apple’s latest iPhone from going on sale in the region, reports suggest. In a recent announcement, Apple confirmed that its iPhone 4S was all set to go on sale and just waiting for the approval from the local authorities.

The approval from the local regulators means that Apple and its wireless carrier partners can now release the latest iPhone 4S to the one of the largest smartphone markets in the world.

Keeping in view the China Unicom statement of selling the latest Apple device from early this month, we can expect that the iPhone’s fans in the country won’t have to wait that long to have iPhone 4S in their hands. According to the carrier, a 16GB iPhone 4S will cost customers ¥4,999 (estimated $786) exclusive of subsidy.

The analysts expect that the iPhone 4S will do remarkably well in the Chinese smartphone market as it has been doing all over the world. China does have a large Apple fan-base and one can expect to have a similar turnout as we have seen in Hong Kong on the opening day of iPhone 4S sales. Being a largest smartphone market, Apple should be expecting to generate huge revenue from its iPhone 4S sales in the country.
