Apple (AAPL -0.3%) is now accepting payment in Chinese yuan for App Store downloads, its latest move in what has become a key growth market.

    payment in yuan? crazy. it will cause some problems in China. And Chinese government will not allow that happen without. It will force apple to build up co-partnership company with one chinese local investor.
