According to the Russian news agency Rosatom, the country has recently prevented public officials from using Apple phones for work. The reason behind this decision is that many Apple phones in Russia have been hacked through a backdoor program allegedly set up by Apple. Apple has denied any involvement in such a program and has never given any government a backdoor for any of their products. Despite this, Russian iPhone users are being advised to check their phones for viruses.
The CEO of Kaspersky, a computer security company, has reported that many of his employees’ phones were hacked in a professional cyber attack on top and middle management. It is important to be cautious while using any device, especially in a professional setting.
It’s worth noting that after companies like Microsoft, Google, and Apple withdrew from the Russian market, the iPhone’s market position plummeted. Let’s hope for a brighter future for all companies in the tech industry!
