It appears another country is cutting Apple devices from its list of acceptable devices. A few months ago, the Russian government dropped its iPad program amid concerns that the U.S. government might intercept important confidential information. Although Russian officials pointed to “American special services” as the reason for the switch to Samsung devices, Apple is the one losing out.
Today, Bloomberg revealed a similar stance taken in China. In a government procurement list, the National Development and Reform Commission and Ministry of Finance omitted Apple’s iPad, iPad mini, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro.
