iPhone Shipments To China Are Down By 22%

Apple’s CEO Tim Cook had recently confirmed that demand for the iPhone is weaker than they expected, and that a market that they’re seeing the most weakness in is China.

Just like the majority of smartphones out there, the iPhone has a camera shortcut which users can access even when their phone is locked.
