Huawei wished you a happy new year from your iPhone

This time, the awareness campaign was not a deliberate marketing action, but a mistake.

2018 was a strong roller coaster for Huawei. Earlier last year, the U.S. government banned major service providers from adding the successful and excellent Mate 10 Pro to their offerings. Since then, the U.S. government has made sure that Huawei gets into big trouble in both America and Europe. Despite the difficulties and security concerns, Huawei overtook Apple in global sales and shipped more than 200 million smartphones in 2018.

Huawei will even want to overtake Samsung in sales over time. While in China, in response to U.S. scandals, local companies are even fully supporting the purchase of Huawei smartphones, oddly enough, some people at Huawei use an iPhone.

All of this came to light when Huawei wanted a happy new Twitter, namely an iPhone. The buck was first noticed by the popular YouTuber, Marques Brownlee, and brought to his attention. Huawei then deleted its entry and replaced it with a perfect copy that had already been published from another device. The Chinese company replied to YouTube that they like to invest in and build on open platforms, ones that allow them to work with customers, partners and opponents globally.

Huawei was actually criticized for trying to get rid of what happened. The buck itself is no longer a big deal: Samsung has recently released content on the iPhone several times, but Apple has also advertised its music streaming service on an Android device.
