AutoNavi, a digital map and navigation service provider backed by Alibaba, announced on October 21 that it was the first one in China to adapt to Apple iPhone14 Pro and iPhone14 Pro Max's Dynamic Island feature.
With its high price of 6,999 yuan ($974), and no major updates from the previous generation in terms of configuration and appearance, the iPhone 14 Plus has set records for the fastest price reductions in China, arousing lively discussion.
The rollout of Apple's latest smartphone series offers a glimpse into the iPhone's evolving relationship with Chinese tech and consumers.
Chinese smartphone manufacturer realme has asked its users around the world to share opinions and suggestions on whether the firm should adopt a design similar to Apple's new "Dynamic Island" feature on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
The iPhone 14 series, which was originally scheduled to open for sale on September 16, had already emerged on dealer and scalper channels in China on September 15, for prices higher by two or even three thousand yuan.
