Here’s a piece of good news for the Chinese Apple fanboys who would love to buy the new iPad. According to Chinese publication Sina Tech, the new iPad has gained the necessary approvals from local authorities to sell the new iPad in China.
Recently, the Chinese government has granted China Compulsory Certification (3C) to Apple’s new iPad on March 22. Well, for those who are not aware, since May 1st, 2002, China has required a mandatory license (3C) to sell a product in China. The license will be issued to a product after passing a series of test and this certificate will be valid for five years. So the new iPad (Wi-Fi model) is now approved to be sold in the country with the license, and has a validity of five years, expiring on March 22, 2017.
