Apple Every year on World Consumer Rights Day (March 15), government-controlled China Central Television (CCTV) broadcasts a special report (in Chinese) damning companies for abusing Chinese consumers. This year the targets included Apple. Apple was accused of giving Chinese consumers worse service than customers in other countries, specifically of giving them replacements that included cases from their old phone, while customers in the UK would get a 100% new product.

They have to find a more acceptable target for people to direct their frustrations on. This time, it happens to be Apple.

Besides, Apple did violate Chinese laws, which require them to cover the replacement for the same period as the original product (instead of just the remainder of the original warranty period). I don't see how this is all that different from the case in Italy.
