In China, Apple products were once a symbol of wealth and fashion. Many Chinese people buy the latest models of smart phones every year. In order to buy the latest Apple products, people lined up overnight, snapped up, and even sold kidneys.


Then in 2016, everything changed.


Apple's product innovation is not high, new ideas are not enough, the lack of new highlights and other issues caused Apple's product market has become saturated.


At the same time, the rise of domestic mobile phones has brought a huge impact on Apple. Buying apples is no longer the only option. Many people choose domestic mobile phones with higher cost performance.


China's Huawei, ZTE, Meizu, Xiaomi and other domestic brands are rising. In 2015, Huawei and Xiaomi together accounted for 30% of the market share, Apple's Samsung is only 22%! In the first quarter of 2016, shipments of Chinese branded handsets surpassed the sum of Samsung and Apple for the first time!


Today, Apple's mobile phones, computers, and flat panels have all fallen in sales in China. The “first mobile phone industry” has just released its mobile phone sales rankings in June. Huawei is still the number one, and what about Apple? Has fallen out of the top five as the sixth, and has even been overgrown by the domestic old Jin Li.

For Apple's sales plummet, Ren Zhengfei said this sentence today: Apple is very rich, but too conservative; Huawei has no money, but it is as crazy as a rich investment. If Apple does not dare to invest money, it will only follow us. Huawei will become as rich as Apple.


The decline of Sheng is extremely high, which means that Apple, which is a "local tyrant, high-grade, and atmospheric," has been forced to a dead end. Apple's road in China is getting harder and harder!


Elevated, Chinese companies are rising!
