Weatherhead’s Jonathan Ernest examines demand of Apple products in China

Huawei puts pressure on Apple to come up with a better iPhone

International Business TimesJonathan Ernest, assistant professor at Weatherhead School of Management, said that while the Chinese economy is not experiencing the rapid growth of years past, the demand for smartphones and computer products hasn’t completely dried up. “Instead, while sales of Apple products in China have slumped, its Chinese competitors like Huawei have seen large gains,” he said. “This may be due to a combination of Apple’s limited product offerings and geopolitical pressures to purchase or use domestic products over those imported from the West.”
