First, Apple announces a lower-cost iPhone, rumored to be the 5C. That would provide a better match for China's price-sensitive consumers.
Second, Apple cuts a deal with China Mobile, the biggest carrier in the largest smartphone market in the world.
Apple's growth in China has been stunted, in part, because it hasn't been able to strike … Read more
