Apple is working hard to gain the approval of selling the iPhone 5 in China. Finally, its efforts are paying off. That’s because the Ministry of Industry and Technology of the People’s Republic of China has just rubber stamped the iPhone 5, granting Apple the proper network verification of the device and the right to sell it in the country. Today’s report is based on a document taken from a regulatory website which reveals an Apple device that’s similar to the iPhone receiving a network access license.
China is considered to be the world’s largest mobile market. Getting the required certification for the iPhone 5 should be on top of Apple’s main priorities. Apple plans to launch two iPhone 5 versions in China – one supporting WCDMA and another for CDMA-2000 network. The said two versions of the iPhone 5 will be going on sale via China Unicom and China Telecom. The iPhone 5 is expected to be available in the country next month.
