We’re less than a week away from Apple’s September 10th media event where it is expected to launch two new iPhones. It has been rumored time and again that Apple is looking to capture more market share in China. The iPhone 5C, Apple’s rumored budget iPhone, is expected to be big in markets like India and China. According to a Chinese news outlet, the company will release both new iPhones in the country on September 20th, the day it is expected to release them in the U.S. and other major markets. Initially the release is reportedly going to be with its two current local partners, China Unicom and China Telecom.

Earlier today Apple sent out invites for a separate iPhone event to Chinese media outlets, the event takes place nine hours after the one in California. It is said that executives from both local carriers will be there as well, China Mobile executives are reportedly going to be present too. Apparently the iPhone launch on China Mobile has been delayed until November due to issues with 4G licenses, once the carrier receives its license only then it can begin selling the new TD-LTE compatible iPhones. The carrier’s CEO recently said that they were keen on selling the iPhone, but were facing commercial and technical issues.
