According to data by the Chinese government, iPhone shipments in China were up with 6% year-over-year in September and October. The rise in iPhone shipments could be because of the iPhone 11’s popularity.

Bloomberg reports that Apple shipped 10 million units in September and October this year.

Apple Inc. shipped 10 million iPhones in China during September and October, based on Bloomberg’s calculations from government data on overall and Android device shipments. That’s the first indication of the company’s performance following the autumn release of its latest gadgets, and it shows iPhone shipments up 6% from a year earlier, according to the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology, which is run by the country’s technology ministry.

That affirms expectations that Apple’s iPhone 11 is selling more strongly than its predecessor, particularly in a market that’s second only to the U.S. in its importance to Apple’s bottom line […]

Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook has said new pricing, a monthly payment program and trade-in offers helped the iPhone’s performance in China.

Bloomberg also stated that Apple still faces a long-term problem in China, because many services like iTunes Music, Apple Arcade and Apple TV+ aren’t available in the country.
