Tim Cook was in Beijing for the occasion and met with journalists and clients at the main Apple Store in Beijing, where he autographed iPhones.
The CEO said that “today is just the beginning of China Mobile and Apple coming together to deliver the best experience in the world.”
One participant asked if Apple was working on an iPhone with a bigger screen, a feature that is popular in China.
In response, Cook hinted at future Apple products, promising that his team was working on “great things.”
“We never talk about future things,” he said. “We have great things we are working on, but we want to keep them secret. That way you will be so much happier when you see it.”
Apple already sells the iPhone in China through operators China Telecom and China Unicom, but China Mobile has missed out on offering the smartphone until now.
