Apple has sold more iPhones in China than in the US



Apple is likely to announce soon that for the first time it sold more iPhones in China during 2014 than it did at home in the US. Analysts believe that this overtaking was made possible thanks to Apple's deal with China Mobile and the subsequent release of the Apple iPhone 6 in China last October.

Apple's deal with China Mobile has helped the company become more familiar with Chinese users. According to analysts China has accounted for 36% of iPhone shipments while the US accounted for just 24%.
