Apple has invited Chinese media for a second special event, set to be held at Beijing’s China World Trade Center on September 11. Scheduled to start roughly six hours after the conclusion of Apple’s American iPhone event on September 10, it’s speculated that Apple will use the Beijing venue to announce a deal with China Mobile to bring the iPhone to the world’s largest carrier. Apple CEO Tim Cook met with the chairman of China Mobile about a month ago, and negotiations have been ongoing for some time. The official Apple event will be the first of its kind in China.
