US Eases Ban of Apple's iPhone in Iran

PA - Title Bar - News Shot

According to a new report out of London, the US has eased restrictions on the sale of mobile phones and other communications devices, software and services to Iranians. The shift marks the first time Apple's iPhone can be exported legally to Iran.

The move to ease restrictions is intended to promote Iranians' political freedom, countering what the US describes as Tehran's efforts to "silence its people".


The report stated that "In recent years, Iranians in the US have complained Apple retail stores had refused to sell them iPhones or iPads, with employees saying they feared the devices would be illegally shipped to Iran." The bigger question in reading that last statement is how does an Apple employee actually know that a customer is Iranian?


The latest move by the US comes just weeks ahead of elections in Iran
