Mobile phones need to pass major regulatory approvals in China to enter the Chinese market16. November 2017
The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) has released a statement that they have gained reassurances from Apple that three potentially invasive background services are merely diagnostic tools that won’t be used for malicious purposes. This is despite reports which suggested that there was some risk of personal information being leaked.
The guarantee, which was submitted by Apple to the MIIT, claimed that Apple would not ‘interfere’ with any customer’s confidential information, without the express permission from the user. For further reassurance purposes, Apple has even taken steps to enhance their security in an effort to make it even more difficult for anybody to use these tools in a malicious manner.
These actions, along with the reassurances from Apple mean that that four variations of the iPhone have passed CCC certification, which has also aided Apple in gaining a license from the State Radio Regulation of China so that the handsets could be sold.
