Four Congress members tell Tim Cook to end Apple’s ‘near total capitulation to the communist regime in China’

As noted by AppleInsider, four members of Congress, Ken Buck, Scott Fitzgerald, Burgess Owens, and Dan Bishop signed a letter to Apple CEO Tim Cook asking Apple to end its “near total capitulation to the communist regime in China.” The letter describes Apples relationship with the Chinese government as a contradiction to Apple’s core values of holding privacy as a fundamental human right.

Apple might considering ending its “near total capitulation to the communist regime in China,” but the tech giant certainly isn’t going to quit selling its products in the country. 

Last month Apple saw “brisk” iPhone sales in China in April, according to Digitimes. The company says the company sold 2.7 million units last month, about 10% of the market share.

That’s up from 8% in March. Digitimes says that more growth is on the way. In fact, the article says Apple’s iPhone shipments in China are likely to grow by a double-digit rate on year to 8-8.5 million units in the second quarter of 2021.

What’s more, Apple’s sales in Greater China, which includes Hong Kong and Taiwan, almost doubled year-on-year in the quarter ending March, buoyed by strong demand for 5G iPhones and first-time purchases of Macs and iPads
