Apple has reportedly received regulatory approval to sell its iPhone 5 in China, according to the WSJ.
According to a regulatory website, an Apple device resembling the iPhone 5 has received approval for a “network access” license in China.
Vendors in China often start selling new handsets within weeks of approval by China’s Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center.
The regulator has approved licenses for an iPhone support by China Telecom and one supported by China Unicom.
Recently, China Telecom Chairman Wang Xiaochu said that the phone should be available by early December if not sooner.
