The new iPhone hit stores around the world on Friday (September 20), but some fans in China worry Apple may soon lose ground in the country.

The iPhone 11 has a bevy of new functions.

The three-lens camera has been a highlight since the model was unveiled.

However it isn't ready for 5G.

That's the next generation of high-speed mobile data networks.

This is a problem in China where one of Apple's biggest Chinese competitors - Huawei - rolled out its first 5G phone two months ago.

One eager iPhone fan admitted Apple's local prospects may dim.

(SOUNDBITE) (Mandarin) 33 YEAR-OLD CIVIL SERVANT AND CUSTOMER, LIU LIU, SAYING: "If they don't research 5G then they're going to lag way behind.

They don't have it this year because you can't just make a 5G function in a day or two, and they didn't expect China's 5G technology to grow so fast.

" Apple lowered the prices of this round of iPhones- likely in order to lure in Chinese buyers.

Analysts say company has already lost marketshare to Huawei over a surge in support from patriotic Chinese after the brand was caught up in the U.S.-China trade war.
