Apple gains access to one of the largest markets with C3 certification
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/02/2012 -- China has certified the iPhone which gives Apple access to the key market. Two of Apples models gained China Compulsory Certification (3C) Monday, according to Sina Tech.
The A1429 and A1442 were the models that earned the certificate. The former would be geared for WCDMA network, a Unicom network. The latter version would work under China Telecom’s CDMA 2000 network. The certification is mandatory, inspecting and approving products that will be sold in the Chinese market.
The iPhone is not in the clear yet for full access to the likely lucrative marketplace. An access license must be approved so the company can find a partnership with one or all three of the Chinese major mobile carriers.
Unicom plans to begin selling the iPhone 5 by the start of 2013, while the China Telecom company expects the phones shortly after. The only company remaining is China Mobile.
China Mobile has been reported to be in discussions with Apple. The iPhone 4S was rumored but never came to fruition.
