Apple sold fewer than 500,000 iPhones in China in February, a very negative figure mainly related to the coronavirus epidemic.
In February, Apple sold 494,000 phones in China, a 60% drop from the 1.27 million iPhones sold in the same period a year ago. Apple had previously said that the estimates for the first quarter of the year would not be met precisely because of the coronavirus, but few expected such a significant drop in sales in China.
The drop in price is mainly of the closure of many Apple Stores and the restrictions imposed by the Chinese government, which has banned travel and travel for several weeks. The situation in China is slowly returning to normal, also in terms of production. Besides, Apple has reopened most of Apple Stores across the country.
