Apple blocks all access to the App Store from Iran

Apple blocks all access to the App Store from Iran

However, Iranians who wanted to use the latest Apple device could import them from other countries and then adjust the Iran AppStore settings in order to access apps available in other regions. Users were no longer to access the service around noon local time Thursday. Some users were able to fend off the ban via Virtual Private Network (VPN) services.

This ban appears to be IP-based, and Iranians who use VPNs can still get in despite having Iran-related details set on his account.

Several cybersecurity experts confirmed that the ban is IP-based. Friouzi was able to access the Store via a VPN even though his account was Iranian. It appears that now, Apple has closed that loophole, blocking any traffic coming from inside Iran from accessing the App Store in any capacity. Apple hasn't made a statement on the changes, and it didn't immediately return a request for comment.

How much Samsung's flagship S9+ costs to make

Nevertheless, it is not the first time the US tech giant turns its back to Iran. The United States has expressed their disapproval over the actions of Iran with sanctions, and it appears as if Apple is adjusting the Iran AppStore in order to comply with the USA government and their wishes.

According to Bleeping Computer Users were not able to connect to the Apple App Store to install or update applications.

In August 2017, Apple removed all apps created by Iranian developers from the App Store, attributing the move to US-imposed economic sanctions. At the time, the company explained that it doesn't want to do business with a country that is under US embargo. What's more, because of the sanctions, the iPhone maker can not sell its phones in Iran.
