Could Apple get hurt in China in the short term due to coronavirus? Sure. But this too will pass.

Very clear Chinese like Apple products and services and will continue to buy them:

Tim Cook:

"For the results from last quarter, we had double-digit growth for iPhone in mainland China. So that was an important change from where we had been running. We also had double-digit growth in Services in mainland China, and we had extremely strong double digit on wearables. And so really, there were a number of different factors. In terms of the things that customers are responding to, iPhone 11 is doing particularly well there. The product has been very well received, with its battery life and the camera is unbelievable. We also, as you probably know, have certain trade-in programs going and financing programs. These have also been well received. And so it’s sort of the sum of all of this, and we’re attracting quite a large percentage of new customers on products like the Mac. Three quarters of the customers buying a Mac in China are new, and nearly two-thirds of the customers buying iPad are new. So it was a terrific quarter. We had three of the top four selling smartphones in urban China, according to Kantar."
