iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus sales stopped in China because it's not so 'Original'

posted Nov 7, 2016, 8:10 PM by iPhone Repairs Specialist Sydney


Effective immediately, Apple is issued an order to stop selling the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in China.

Why does it has to stop its iPhone 6 sales?

The iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus looked like a Chinese competitor's design. This ended up as if Apple copied the Chinese brand and made itself a huge lawsuit on the same country that sells the alleged original smartphone design.

The smartphone in question is the 100C, a device made by Shenzhen Beili. This seems like a very close resemblance to the iPhone 6's design. However, Apple lost and for the meantime ordered to stop its smartphone sales in the world's largest market.

Apple makes an appeal

Apple is not having any of this and sales will continue for the time being since the administrative order is still remaining as just an appeal. It was issued last May 2016 and was reported just recently.

Stocks went down for Apple

Shares for Apple plummeted by 2.3% right after the news surfaced according to Sky News. For a company that is trying to regain dominance over the smartphone business around the world, this is not really a good sign. The iPhone 6 was the best Apple could offer to the consumers with its new design.

More setbacks

Apple has been having a rough time in the Chinese market with the suspension of the iTunes movie service last April. China is it's second biggest global market and obviously the biggest stumbling block for the Curpertino-based tech giant.

Competition from the rising Chinese companies like Huawei and Xiaomi is also a thing to consider if Apple is to sell its future devices like the iPhone 7.

In May, Apple suffered another setback when a court ruled that a Chinese company is allowed to use the iPhone trademark on bags, wallets and other leather goods.

Why did Apple get rid of the headphone jack on the iPhone 7?

posted Nov 6, 2016, 11:27 PM by iPhone Repairs Specialist Sydney   [ updated Nov 7, 2016, 12:36 AM ]

iPhone 7 Lightning Audio Jack


It took courage to remove it

Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller said the firm had been motivated by "courage" to get rid of the headphone jack.

Schiller said on stage:

"Some people have asked us why we would remove the analogue headphone jack. It's been with us a really long time and it boils down to one word: courage. Our team has tremendous courage."

It saves a lot of space

That's just marketing speech - which has already become a joke on social media sites - but Schiller's subsequent offers more insight into why the iPhone 7 doesn't have a headphone jack. He said, "our smartphones are packed with technologies, faster processors ... and all of it fights for space."

That extra space, although very little, is being used to pack extra tech into the iPhone 7. That's clear from the dimensions of the phone - the lack of a headphone jack hasn't made the iPhone 7 thinner, it's still 7.1 mm like the iPhone 6 Plus.

Instead, Apple is using the freed up space for extra technologies, likely emphasised on the A10 Fusion processor and battery cell in the iPhone 7.


iPhone 7 Lightning Audio Earpods


Apple sees a wireless future

Why maintain a space-taking single purpose analogue connector, which has been used in tech since 1964? You don't, according to Apple, with the company instead looking towards a wireless future.

You'll get a pair of Lightning EarPods in package of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. These are much the same as the EarPods you've had in the box with previous iPhones, but they're designed for use with the Lightning port instead of a traditional 3.5 mm jack.

That means if you're reliant on headphones you won't have the chance to listen to music on your phone and charge it at the same time. This is just sad.

There's a dongle for that

Each phone will also ship with a Lightning to 3.5 mm adaptor, so you can continue using your wired headphones with the handset. The adaptor doesn't look great, it gives you an extra cable to carry around, and it's mosting likely to be annoying when hearing music on the go.

Plus, if you lose it, Apple will charge you $9 (₤ 9) for a replacement. For Sydney, it's AU$12 for Aussie users.
