Yesterday, Russia launched a new regulation that all smartphones, personal computers and smart TVs sold in the country are pre loaded with software developed by local technology companies.
If the above regulations are good for other mobile phone manufacturers, then it will be more difficult for apple to accept them. After all, the iPhone uses a proprietary IOS operating system and adheres to a relatively closed business model, so the acceptance is certainly not as high as that of Android manufacturers.
In fact, the purpose of this legislation is to help Russian information technology companies compete with foreign companies, and to enable consumers to purchase new devices without having to download a large number of software again.
According to foreign media reports, apple insiders said that the above-mentioned behavior is unacceptable. Adding a third-party application to Apple's ecosystem is equivalent to jailbreaking, which is dangerous and unacceptable.
It is reported that Russia will provide the list of domestic software to be pre installed according to the specific type of electronic equipment. If the relevant enterprises violate the law, they will face a fine of 200000 rubles (equivalent to 3100 US dollars), and if they violate the law many times, the government regulators will prohibit the sale of products in the Russian market.
