The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which Motley Fool senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker and chief technology officer Jeremy Phillips discuss emerging trends in technology.

In today's edition, Jeremy and Eric look at just how much greater China is contributing to Apple's sales -- $8.8 billion in the past nine months alone -- and the reasons there's still a long runway of growth left. Finally, the two look at why Apple is profiting from the market while other American tech companies have struggled to find meaningful profits in the country.
