Apple has just announced that the Wi-Fi versions of iPad mini and fourth generation iPad will be available in China on Friday, December 7, and the iPhone 5 will be available on Friday, December 14. “iPad mini and the new fourth generation iPad with Retina display are currently available in 42 countries, and iPhone 5 is available in 47 countries, including the US, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan and the UK.” Chinese product launches have typically lagged well behind those in other countries, but the company has been working to shorten those gaps, since China now accounts for 15% of Apple’s revenues.

The iPhone 4S launched in China three months after the device’s debut, while the third-generation iPad took four months to arrive in the country. Now the iPhone 5 launches in China roughly two and a half months after the official launch and the iPad mini and fourth generation iPad are coming to China just a month after the U.S. launch.
