Looks like the top executive of Huawei is an Apple fanboy.

Huawei CEO Ren Zhengfei was recently photographed at an airport security checkpoint. The photo depicts Ren packing up his belongings, as the airport security officer inspects what appears to be Ren’s Apple iPad.

The photo made the rounds on Chinese social media site Weibo, much to the amusement and criticism of netizens.

The Huawei CEO has previously expressed his admiration for Apple products, and even said that his children “prefer Apple product over Huawei.”

Does it mean that they don’t love Huawei? Of course not,” he was quoted as saying in a report by the South China Morning Post.

“iPhone has a good ecosystem and when my family are abroad, I still buy them iPhones, so one can’t narrowly think love for Huawei should mean loving Huawei phones,” said Ren.

When his daughter and Huawei CFO Meng Wangzhou was arrested in Canada in 2018, she was caught carrying the whole set: an iPhone, an iPad, and a Macbook.

Further declaring his love for the US tech giant, Ren said “If there was no Apple, there would be no mobile internet. If there was no Apple to help show us the world, we would not see the beauty of this world. Apple is my teacher – it’s advancing in front of us. As a student, why should I oppose my teacher? I would never do that.”

Ironically, two Huawei employees were demoted and got their salaries reduced for tweeting a New Year’s greeting on Huawei’s official Twitter account using an iPhone./TISG
