Residents of China are ready to abandon the iPhone in favor of WeChat

18.08.2020 News

The vast majority of Chinese people are ready to abandon produced by the American company Apple devices in favor of the application for instant messaging WeChat.

A sociological survey of more than 1 million people in China noted, that almost all are willing to renounce the use in everyday life of products produced by Apple.

It was very important for people living in the country to use the WeChat program, however it was declared “illegal” by US President Donald Trump and ordered Apple to exclude from its store this program.

Due to Trump’s decree, it will be impossible to install the WeChat application on Apple’s phone.

Kindly be aware, that the US president has banned American companies from entering into agreements with the Chinese company Tencent.

The ban will apply to Apple’s App Store online store: it will not be possible to post applications from Chinese developers in the App.

For the people of China, the WeChat is not only necessary in personal life, but also at work. Also in China citizenships via WeChat can make purchases, it has become common for many users of the program.
