Calm Apple will not leave Russia

And that's why.
Yesterday, we wrote that the Russian authorities supported the bill, according to which a ban on the implementation of smartphones without pre-installed Russian software may be introduced in Russia. Everything is serious – the initiative has already been taken in the first reading. And it immediately aroused the concern of fans of Apple products. Forums and social networks are seriously discussing the possibility of iPhone leaving our market. How likely is this?
In fact, fears are almost groundless. IPhones will not go anywhere, the gray market will not flourish, and buying a new smartphone from Cupertinos will be as simple as it is today (there would be money).
Apple really doesn’t install regional applications in advance. Not only in Russia, but also in other countries, including China, with its harsh legislation. But officially localizes devices and iOS, skillfully adapts to the laws.
You don’t need to go far for examples.
In the same UAE, iPhone has the default video calling feature called FaceTime. In Japan, you cannot turn off the sound of the camera shutter (and they also put a special chip to pay for FeliCa there). Chinese iPhones lack the emoji of the flag of Taiwan, and all the iCloud information of Apple customers in the Middle Kingdom is stored on local servers.
Thus, we conclude that Apple solves problems that hinder the sale of their devices locally without any problems. This is a business. Nobody will leave a profitable market and a familiar place.
Finally, the bill itself is still raw – it is waiting for numerous amendments and two readings before adoption. Apple may not have to change anything at all.
