The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which technology and media editor/analyst Andrew Tonner and industrials editor/analyst Brendan Byrnes discuss topics across the investing world.
By many metrics, Apple is the most successful smartphone company in the world. The company generates impressive demand for its ever-expanding arsenal of iProducts and sells them for outsize profits to boot. And while Apple's armor might seem impenetrable, the company does have some issues it needs to address in order to maintain its past successes well into the future. In short, Apple will do well to accelerate its expansion into China. The company has a growing presence, but its closest competitor, Samsung, is growing its lead in the Middle Kingdom at an accelerating clip. In this video, Andrew reveals exactly what he thinks Apple needs to do to shore up its place at the center of the mobile revolution in China for years to come.
