China Mobile doesn’t even sell Apple’s iPhone lineup yet, but a new report claims its network already provides service to more iPhone users than AT&T and Verizon Wireless combined. Ahead of the likely iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c debuts on China Mobile later this year, a report from Sina Tech claims that the network is currently home to as many as 42 million iPhone users. This is a shockingly high figure, if accurate, and it represents just under 6% of China Mobile’s massive subscriber base that totaled 740 million at last count. Earlier this month, Apple’s upcoming iPhone 5s and 5c were approved for use on China Mobile’s network, further supporting reports that a launch is imminent.
