Apple is trying to throw as many devices as possible in the Chinese market, yet they have to gauge the manufacturing capacity. The late launch in the Chinese market is due to the fact that Apple first wants to meet the existing demand where phone has been launched and of course they do not want to keep on hold the delivery of devices in the current market.
