China says “No!” to Apple products in government agencies
posted by Peter K. / Aug 06, 2014, 4:40 AM
All of Apple's devices, including all renditions of the iPhone and the iPad, are now unapproved by government employees. Interestingly enough, said Apple products reportedly made it to the draft of the approved devices list back in June, but its final version is devoid of them.
This is not the first time China has turned its back to US-made technology, as Edward Snowden's disclosures about NSA's purported spying habits has multiplied China's fears and that the USA might be trying to get hold of their statewide secrets. Several months ago, it was confirmed that the NSA has spied on Huawei, one of the largest local smartphone manufacturers, which greatly unsettled China's government agencies.
Neither the local branch of Apple, nor the Chinese National Development and Reform Commission have commented on the matter yet, but Cupertino claimed multiple times that it has never allowed any government institution to retrieve information from its servers and never will.

Do not laugh! US Big Brothers(MS-windows, Google-android, Apple-iOS, plus Facebook) actually control the ppl of whole World , with their "back-doors" given open to CIA, NSA, FBI....and so. They will not give this total dominance to be broken. That's why they use any dirty methods to destroy Samsung , (because Samsung scare the sh...out of them, by getting bigger and bigger ). Like they did with Nokia.

"Cupertino claimed multiple times that it has never revealed any government institution to retrieve information from its servers and never will." Oh please, like the NSA never has retrieved information from their server.

This, has nothing to do with Apple or any other company. Simply, China knows the know hows of espionage, and don't want the tables turn on them. http://www.phonearena.com/news

"US-made technology"?! They're MADE in China (mostly, some in Brazil, and one small line of mac pros are assembled in the U.S.). US-owned is more accurate. Plus china has millions of other phones being made there, many for intra-national consumption.
