iPhone 6 can now be sold in China

The licence approval came after four models of the iPhone 6 passed 3C (China Compulsory Certification) certification, a mandatory system to inspect and approve various products to be sold in China, and won approval from the State Radio Regulation earlier this month. The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) said that it has granted a network access licence to iPhone 6.

The network access license together with the two other regulatory approvals means that the iPhone 6 can be sold in China, state-run Xinhua News Agency reported.

The licence came after weeks of delay for the release of the phone which had resulted in largescale smuggling from Hong Kong and the US even though iPhones are manufactured in China.

Chinese police have seized large stocks of smuggled iPhones at airports recently. The MIIT said in a statement that it made the decision to issue the licence after getting reassurance from Apple that three background service programmes, which reportedly had risks of personal privacy leaks, are only diagnostic tools that won't be used maliciously.
