Apple Hellbent on Getting New iPhone in China

Apple may have made a mark in the ongoing siege to get one of the newest iPhones in China, by applying for a network access license in the Asian country, putting a release just a few months away. On one condition….no Wi-Fi.

Rumors have repeatedly hinted that Apple may be forced to remove Wi-Fi to appease the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, who would prefer that iPhone owners use local networks.

If the process moves as usual, the iPhone will take 4 to 6 months to go on sale. This would have it go on sale right before the Chinese New Year. Apple is planning to have a deal with the China carrier Unicom, due to its inherent compatibility with the iPhone’s existing 3G standards.
