Apple has been known to work well in all the countries, across the world. One of the main reasons for it to become the tech giant is because of the international marketing that it has adopted throughout the years. The idea of releasing an app in different countries before the release as a Beta version and gaining feedback from them before releasing the app on the iTunes & App Store speaks about how the tech giant wants its footprints all over the world.
However, very recently the Iranian media has now reported that the apple has removed many of the Iranian apps from the official App Store.The very idea of creating an international platform where all the countries can upload their apps. However, in response to this critical decision of Apple, Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi; the Iranian Telecommunication Minister has said that the Apple should show some concern and respect to the Iranian users. Apple is based in California and it did not respond to this comment, as of late.
Jahromi tweeted: “11% of Iran’s mobile phone market share is owned by Apple. Giving respect to consumer rights is a principle today which Apple has not followed. We will follow up the cutting of the apps legally.”
Apple is not available in Iran, officially or in any of the other Gulf countries but however, the Iranians can purchase the products from the Iran stores.
