China is the new Apple of Apple’s “i.” That is, iPhones, iPads, and iPods are about to be more plentiful than ever across the most populous mobile community on the planet.
Bloomberg reports that Apple is opening a multitude of new retail stores in China. The proof? Apple is hiring a full slate of new managers to staff these new facilities in the works.
For now, we’re told that at least six new Apple stores are planned.
“The company is hiring for outlets in Tianjin, Chongqing, Wuxi, Zhengzhou, Shenyang, and Hangzhou, according to a recruitment advertisement on Apple’s website,” Bloomberg reports.
As you might expect, all of these Chinese cities currently lack an Apple-owned store.
Although it isn’t known when the stores in question will open, there’s an excellent possibility they’ll be open by the time Apple’s iPhone 6 arrives this fall.
