Apple Boss Praises China Amid Sluggish iPhone Sales

Morrissey TechnologyApple CEO Tim Cook is on a short tour of China on the occasion of the opening of the new Apple Store in Shanghai. During this trip, Cook met and praised a number of Apple suppliers

According to Chinese media reports, Cook held an information sharing session with three Apple suppliers BYD, Lens Technology and Everwin Precision Technology — at Apple’s office located in Shanghai.

“There is no supply chain in the world more important to Apple than China,” Cook told reporters in China.

Cook also met with Wang Chuanfu, founder and chairman of Chinese electric car giant BYD, during the session, according to a video posted on Cook’s Weibo account. The bespectacled man enthusiastically praised suppliers in China for having the most advanced manufacturing in the world.

According to his Weibo post, Cook also visited a film production studio, discussed with mobile game developers, and took photos with visitors and staff at Apple’s new store in Shanghai’s Jing’an district.

Cook has visited China three times this year. This visit was carried out amidst sluggish iPhone sales in the Bamboo Curtain country since early 2024. According to a Counterpoint Research report, throughout the first six weeks of 2024 iPhone sales fell 24% compared to the previous year. On the other hand, Huawei cellphone sales skyrocketed by 64%.

Apple and Cook continue to emphasize China’s important role for their companies. Not long ago, Apple announced that it would expand its research center in Shanghai to support all of its product lines, and revealed plans to open a new research laboratory in Shenzhen.

If you look at the opening of the Apple Store in Jing’an a few days ago, it seems that Apple’s charm in China has not faded. According to reports by a number of Chinese media, there were hundreds of Apple fanboys who queued overnight to be the first to visit the store or look for the opportunity to take a photo with Cook.

The Apple Store in Jing’an is the largest Apple store in China. This new store worth USD 11.6 million is the second largest store after Apple’s flagship store on Fifth Avenue FOR4D, New York. Now Apple has eight stores in Shanghai, China’s financial center. Currently there are 47 Apple Stores, the largest of which are in 24 cities in mainland China.

China to Start Using SpaceX-style Space Shuttle Rockets Next Year

Morrissey Technology – China plans to use a space shuttle rocket starting next year for its space mission and to send humans to the Moon. The upcoming space mission is part of the latest Moon missions introduced by China Aerospace Science and Technology Corp (CASC), the main contractor for China’s space program.

This mission is said to be key to China’s goal of sending astronauts to the Moon by 2030. Unlike the rockets that China has used before, the two rockets that will be used in 2025 and 2026 are fully reusable. This means these rockets are not only more sustainable but also more cost-effective, as they do not need to be built from scratch for future missions. This kind of rocket technology has been adopted by the space company SpaceX, one of which is the Falcon 9 rocket.

“Falcon 9 is the world’s first reusable orbital class rocket. Reuse allows SpaceX to reuse the most expensive parts of the rocket, which in turn will lower the cost of access to space,” wrote SpaceX on its official website.

Meanwhile, China’s newest rockets are a 4 meter diameter rocket and a 5 meter diameter rocket. According to Space News, the larger rocket may be a variant of the planned Long March 10, a 92 meter long launch vehicle that has the capacity to send 27 tonnes into translunar orbit.

The Long March 10 rocket itself will be responsible for sending the crew of the Mengzhou spacecraft to the Moon in 2030. A test launch of the Long March 10 could take the crew capsule into Earth orbit as early as 2025, according to the space shuttle rocket’s recently announced schedule.

Meanwhile, details about the second space shuttle which will launch in 2026 have not been announced. Furthermore, several Chinese companies are currently also developing reusable rockets. In the future, space vehicles from CASC will greatly increase China’s options for launches and access to space, while competing with various commercial rocket companies in the country.

Ahead of next year’s launch, CASC is said to have successfully completed vertical takeoff and landing trials and achieved a major technological breakthrough in reusable rockets in 2023, citing Live Science. Representatives from CASC FOR4D said that the overall progress of the rocket project was very smooth.
