Apple is yet to officially announced the iPhone 6 and yet several online sellers in China have already started taking preorders for the next generation smartphones. China is one of the most lucrative markets in the world as smartphone adoption there grows whereas it reaches a saturation point in the West. Which is why a lot of companies are focusing on this crucial market, Apple being one of them. These online sellers require people to pay a deposit in order to secure a unit when the iPhone 6 finally comes out later this year.
In a few months Apple is going to unveil its new smartphones and tablets. This year the company’s third iPad mini is going to be released. Last year it updated the tablet with a Retina display and a faster processor. Rumor has it that this time around there’s a big change coming. The tablet’s moniker will apparently be changed to Air primarily due to the fact that it is going to be 30 percent thinner than its predecessor. Apple crowned the 9.7-inch iPad with the Air moniker last year so it wouldn’t be a surprise if it did the same with the iPad mini.
