iPhones do not attract the Chinese.


Search traffic fell by 50%, February sales were “terrible”
Search traffic is a fairly accurate indicator of how popular a particular device is. Longbow Research data indicate that in January of this year, search traffic on iPhone smartphones in China decreased by 50% compared to the same period a year earlier. A similar decrease was recorded in February of this year, it was 47%. This confirms a variety of information that Apple’s position in the Chinese market is deteriorating. The most annoying thing for Apple is that even aggressive pricing does not help it. Recall that since the beginning of this year, prices for new iPhone models have decreased significantly several times. However, as analysts noted, this will not have the expected effect. Observers say that Chinese iPhone sales in February were simply “terrible”, while they continue to slow down. 37 out of 42 suppliers confirm that February sales were the worst in history.
