Chinese shoppers walk past an advertisement for an IPhone outside an Apple reseller in Beijing on March 18, 2013. Apple was recently targeted over its consumer-service practices in China during a state television broadcast focusing on consumer rights, allegedly claiming the US company treated its Chinese customers differently than in other countries when it came to product service and warranties. A storm or criticism, both pro and against, swamped social media websites in the aftermath of the broadcast. China is the second-biggest market for Apple after the United States.
