Is Apple’s investment in Chinese Company Didi Chuxing in exchange for their App Store Back?

Didi-Chuxing

Apple recently had their iTunes and App store turned off in china. The rumored reasoning was due to Apple refusing to remove a piece of media that the Chinese government did not like.

However, today news comes from China that Apple has invested $1 Billion USD into Chinese Company Didi Chuxing.

I wonder if these are related… lets see how long it takes for Apples iTunes to turn back on.
