Apple's Cook sees Tencent as 'great partner'

CEO of Apple Inc., Time Cook stated that the company's China platform catered to at least 1.8 million users. 93 billion in profits.

Cook, speaking at the Fortune Forum in the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou, also stressed that he believes strongly in freedoms, in comments after a USA democratic senator's remarks on Tuesday that Apple had a moral obligation to promote free expression.

Cook shared the data on Sunday during a speech at China's top public cyber policy forum, organized by the Cybersecurity Administration of China (CAC), which oversees internet regulation including censorship. Cook's attendance at the event has been highly noticed since he is the first high-level executive to attend the event.

Lionsgate drops John Travolta's 'Gotti' 10 days before release
Travolta portrays John Gotti , the flaboyant head of the Gambino crime family who spent the last decade of his life in prison. Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films bought back the rights to Gotti , having produced it with Highland Film Group and Fiore Films.

Cook said that iOS developers in China have generated $17 billion in earnings, accounting for about a quarter of Apple's total global App Store earnings, which is roughly $70 billion. However, on further review it found that the number was far greater than that. Apple has come under fire for acquiescing to Chinese government officials' demands to remove "hundreds of apps", as Reuters noted. And two months ago, Apple announced the removal of several virtual private network (VPN) services from its App Store in China, after the Chinese government had been pressuring the firm to ban all VPNs - which allow users to bypass China's heavily regulated internet - that aren't approved by state regulators. "Therefore these apps have been removed from the app store in China", an Apple spokeswoman told the Times in an emailed statement regarding questions about Skype's recent vanishing act.

Apple counts China as its third-largest region by sales but it has lost market share in recent years as high-end handsets from local rivals continue to gain traction.

However, the company hopes it can regain back some momentum after the release of its iPhone 8 and iPhone X models which shipped in November, according to Reuters.
