US computer giant Apple claims it has reached a deal to bring the iPhone to China Mobile, the world's biggest phone carrier.
The deal could significantly boost sales of the iPhone in China.
Demand for iPhones, once hugely popular in China, have slumped in the country as lower-priced rival smartphones from Samsung and Chinese companies entered the market.
The iPhone 5s and 5c will go on sale in Apple stores and China Mobil stores next month, and customers can register for phones starting on Christmas Day.
Financial details of the proposed agreement have yet to be removed.
