Breaking: Apple iPhones (and iPads) banned in Russia
Russia has taken a very harsh step on Apple once again. Last time we heard, the world power destroyed a statue of the legendary Steve Jobs that was situated at St. Petersburg shortly after the late guru’s successor, Apple CEO Tim Cook, shock the whole world by stepping out “proudly” as a gay.
But the real cause of banning the iPhone and all other Apple products in the country is not because of the above. In fact, other companies’ products will also be affected in the new law that will take effect from 1st January 2015.
According to Russian media, the government has frowned at any device that stores users’ data outside of Russia of which the iPhone, iPad and iPod are guilty of through the usage of the Apple iCloud.
Apple is yet to react on the issue but we think their next move will be all about setting up a data center for the iCloud in Russia. Besides that, the iPhone will soon become contraband product in Russia.
