Apple started in the market in this country with the first Apple Store 8 years ago in Barcelona, and since then it has reached a quantity of 11 official stores. Xiaomi, on the other hand, is within Spain since November of last year, so its time in the local business is just over a year, and it has already been able to triple the number of official stores it has in this territory compared to its American rival, and currently has a total of 28 Mi Stores.
