  1. Apple is still dominate in all other markets, they just slumped in China due to the trade tensions and what not. NOT APPLES FAULT!

  2. It’s likely that Huawei’s tablets are both cheaper and more widespread in shops throughout the country

  3. Because huawei is chinese made and with the trade wars going on between usa and china it’s very likely they stop buying ipads, even that ipads are the best tablet out there
