Tim Cook visiting China to promote iPhone XS as sales disappoint

According to a new report from Washington Post, Tim Cook the CEO of Apple is visiting China this week and he will be using this visit to promote the iPhone XS whose sales have been disappointing so far, according to him.

The Apple CEO has been promoting photos taken from the iPhone XS Max on Weibo and met people practicing yoga wearing their Apple Watch. He will also be attending a board meeting at Tsinghua in Beijing to attend the board meeting of the Tsinghua University School of Economics.

The primary visit of Cook’s visit to China is to remain in the government’s good books.

Li Qian, the secretary of the Communist Party in Shanghai has already met with Tim Cook and made the following statement:
“We are willing to . . . find mutual benefit and win-win results, and to inject new vitality into Shanghai’s development,” Li Qian, secretary of the Communist Party in Shanghai, said after meeting with Cook. But he made it clear that Apple must do its part on bilateral relations.
While the iPhone XS has received a lukewarm response in China, the upcoming iPhone XR is expected to do particularly well since it offers more value for money despite offering almost the same set of features as the more expensive iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

So what do you think ? Will Tim Cook be able to promote the new Apple products in China or not ?
