China bans government officials from using iPhones

Share post:

China has banned government officials from using iPhones and other foreign-branded devices for work or bring them into the office, according to a report by the Wall Street Journal.

The ban, which was reportedly issued in recent weeks, is part of China’s efforts to reduce its reliance on foreign technology and protect its data security.

The report did not name other phone makers besides Apple, but it is likely that the ban also applies to other foreign brands such as Samsung and Huawei.

The ban comes as tensions between the United States and China continue to rise. The United States has imposed a number of sanctions on Chinese companies, including Huawei, and has also banned the use of TikTok in the country.

China has responded by banning the import of some American products and services.
