Meanwhile, at least 300,000 people have booked the new iPhone 5 through Apple's partner China Unicom, which will start selling it on the Chinese mainland tomorrow.

Apple will open a new store in Chengdu in Sichuan Province, the first one in west China, and the third store in Hong Kong on Saturday.

Apple will then have 11 stores in China, including three in Shanghai, three in Beijing and one in Shenzhen, Guangdong Province.

The new stores are set to boost iPhone sales in China, the world's biggest phone market and Apple's strategic market which will see investment rise, it said yesterday in Shanghai.
