Chinese Apple fans wish for 5G

The new iPhone 11 series hit stores in China among worries from fans that Apple may lose China's market for missing out on 5G technology.

Chinese Apple fans wish for 5G

The new iPhone hit stores around the world on Friday (September 20), but some fans in China worry Apple may soon lose ground in the country.

The iPhone 11 has a bevy of new functions.

The three-lens camera has been a highlight since the model was unveiled.

However it isn't ready for 5G.

That's the next generation of high-speed mobile data networks.

This is a problem in China where one of Apple's biggest Chinese competitors - Huawei - rolled out its first 5G phone two months ago.

One eager iPhone fan admitted Apple's local prospects may dim.

(SOUNDBITE) (Mandarin) 33 YEAR-OLD CIVIL SERVANT AND CUSTOMER, LIU LIU, SAYING: "If they don't research 5G then they're going to lag way behind.

They don't have it this year because you can't just make a 5G function in a day or two, and they didn't expect China's 5G technology to grow so fast.

" Apple lowered the prices of this round of iPhones- likely in order to lure in Chinese buyers.

Analysts say company has already lost marketshare to Huawei over a surge in support from patriotic Chinese after the brand was caught up in the U.S.-China trade war.
