If you've been patiently waiting for an iPhone 5 in China, it looks like your wait is about to be cut down - just in time for the holidays. The latest report from The Wall Street Journal is hinting the release is imminent.




After receiving certification from China's State Radio Management earlier in November, Apple have now finally been awarded a "network access license" that lets them enable the iPhone 5 on China Telecom, the country's third-largest wireless carrier.


China's second-largest wireless carrier, China Unicom, might not even receive the iPhone 5 at launch - meaning that multiple carriers might not be enjoying the iPhone 5 love. This might hurt the iPhone 5s market share in the country - where Android is such a dominant force enjoying over 90% of the smartphone market share.
