Many Apple fans, who were waiting for the release of the iPhone 4S Smartphone in front of the Beijing store, got upset when they were announced that the phone will not be released. Although Apple initially announced that they are going to release the phone in China, the huge line of people in front of the Apple store made them change their minds.
According to official statements, Apple representatives decided not to sell the iPhone 4S so they can guarantee the safety of the clients and store personnel.
The result of this decision was a riot that lasted for a few hours. The police intervened and some confrontations took place between Apple fans and law enforcement. The front of the store was covered in eggs and many potential clients were injured. After the incident, Apple decided to delay the release of the iPhone 4S in Beijing and Shanghai stores.
