Apple CEO Tim Cook recently was in China to discuss privacy

Apple CEO Tim Cook recently had "very open" talks regarding security and privacy with Chinese Vice Premier Ma Kai, as both sides deal with controversy. The Chinese government stands accused of spying on its users - and launching foreign cyberattacks - while users of the Apple iCloud service in China are under attack.




Apple is interested in launching its Apple Pay mobile pay service in China, but must address potential security problems with the government. Furthermore, the company will have to convince users that its service is safe and secure from cybercriminals and government snooping.


Much like other US companies, China remains a major market for product and service expansion, which Cook confirmed. "China is a really key market for us. Everything we do, we are going to work it here. Apple Pay is on the top of the list."
