Apple Inc.’s iPhone 6 can now be sold in China after the company received a license to operate the device on the country’s wireless networks, Reuters reported Tuesday, citing the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT).
The iPhone 6 was released in other countries including the United States and Hong Kong on Sept. 19 but Apple did not give a release date for China, the world’s largest smartphone market.
Apple was not available for immediate comment.
Earlier reports said the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus could begin sales in China on Oct. 10 after the head of MIIT said approval was in the final stages.
Meanwhile, Chinese entrepreneurs who managed to get their hands on the iPhone 6 for the black market have been slashing prices in Beijing due to lower-than-expected demand, the New York Times reported.
