Iran Vows to Legally Pursue Apple's Removal of Iranian Apps

25 Août 2017

However, millions of iPhones are smuggled in to the country and developers use other countries' App Store to create and share apps.

Apple's statement to affected developers: "Under the United States sanctions regulations, the App Store can not host, distribute, or do business with apps or developers connected to certain U.S. embargoed countries".

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) has removed some popular apps designed by Iranian developers, citing USA sanctions, according to The Verge.

The takedown appears to be an expansion of efforts to restrict Iranian titles that offer in-app transactions, AppleInsider, the news website for Apple products published. He said some of the deleted apps were not associated with financial transactions, and some were registered in countries other than Iran due to sanctions. For the last few weeks, Apple has been removing Iranian food delivery and shopping apps, and on Thursday, it removed Snapp, an Uber-like ride hailing app that is popular in Iran. The petition had garnered more than 2,300 signatures as of Friday morning, and developers have voiced their frustration on Twitter under the hashtag #StopRemovingIranianApps.

Au programme, une bonne platée de gentils emblématiques... que ne reconnaîtront que les fans de la première heure évidemment. Rien de bien grave me direz-vous puisqu'il s'agit d'un jeu où l'on ne fait que massacrer du péon à grands coups d'épée.

Another popular Iranian app that was recently pulled down was DelionFoods, an online food delivery service company. "Imagine if in the United States, you wouldn't be able to get Uber on your phone".

Iran's telecommunications minister has said the country will legally pursue a recent decision by Apple for removing Iranian apps from its App Store. "Respecting customer rights is a principle today that Apple hasn't abided by".

"11 per cent of the cellphone market in Iran belongs to Apple", wrote Azari Jahromi on Twitter (translated from Persian). "We'll pursue the removal of [Iranian] apps", said Azari Jahromi on his Twitter page.

Azari Jahromi has also hinted that Twitter and YouTube may be unblocked in Iran in the near future, but has also affirmed that this is not his decision to make.
