Why it’s about to get tougher for Apple to grow iPhone sales in China

Samsung seems to be more likely to be affected by this move. iPhone’s will no doubt be impacted, however, given their “luxury” status it probably will pan out similarly as in other cases where subsidies were cut in certain countries.

Update: To be clear, Apple will likely lose market share over this – but their profit will likely not take as much of a hit. They’ve always sold less of their (typically one to three) models of iPhone vs. hundreds of models of other vendors’ phones and still made the lion’s share of the profit.
