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 .

Further declaring his love for the US giant, Ren said “If there was no Apple, there would be no mobile internet. If there was no Apple to help show us the , 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.”
