Apple is reopening its 42 Apple Stores in China this Friday, Reuters said, based on statements from a company spokesperson. These stores had been closed for over a month due to the coronavirus epidemic.
A notice on the manufacturer’s Chinese website announcing the store closures has been replaced by a page showing the store’s opening hours.
Government measures to curb the epidemic have caused iPhone sales to fall by more than 50% in China, the South China Morning Post said. Barely 500.00 copies were sold in February according to the daily.
