Apple knows that it has to expand its presence in China and now The Wall Street Journal reports
that the company has posted openings for more than 200 different jobs in the country on LinkedIn. Among other things, Apple
is looking to hire an environmental affairs program manager, a security specialist and a store specialist in China, where it’s seen its market share fall rapidly due to the onslaught of low-cost Android devices
made by vendors such as Samsung, Xiaomi, Micromax, ZTE and many, many others
. Apple is expected to release a budget version of its iPhone
in September that will be targeted at key emerging markets to help shore up the company’s market share in places where it’s lost ground to Android.
