Honestly though, that's rather good news for me. Apple as a company would think China is a huge market and therefore very important to them. But for me as an Apple user who doesn't hold AAPL stocks, I think Apple is focusing too much on China. Over the past few years, every major keynote like WWDC and the fall iPhone keynote involved something Chinese like English to Chinese translations, WeChat, some Chinese version of Uber, and more, like anyone besides Chinese cares. If this new tip policy affects Chinese iPhone users negatively and make people in that country move from iOS to Android, maybe Apple will realize the US market is more important and pay more attention to us.The problem with this is that, in China, these content creators will urge their users to buy Android where they get more money from their tips. What percentage decrease this will cause is unclear.
