Rumors hint that Apple sold over 60 Million iPhones in the holiday quarter of 2013. This would be a record breaker for Apple and does not include any iPhones sold with China Mobile, which Apple partnered with in late December. This could be almost 16% increase over the 2012 holiday quarter.
Apple on Friday began selling iPhones on China Mobile, the world’s largest mobile carrier. China Mobile boasts an incredible 700 Million+ users, more than Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprit combined.
Apple CEO Tim Cook was present at an Apple Store to offer signed iPhones. Days prior, both Cook and a China Mobile Executive showed their enthusiasm about the upcoming deal. The deal is expected to generate approximately 17 Million new users for Apple.
I’m personally really excited about this deal. There’s a ton of potential for Apple.
