Apple already patched the exploit Pegasus and graphite were using to break into people’s phones.

Russian officials advice “Give it[the iPhone] to your children”

I guess security was never the reason to ban iPhones in Russia.

Government mindset: if we can‘t snoop for information on our employees’ iPhones then place a ban on the use of their iPhones.

Governments in general seem to want unbridled access to our information and will attach the label “vital to national security” to get it. Yet, they will classify anything they don’t want us to have access to under the label “protecting national security”.

I didn’t even think about it like that.

I guess apple should have never patched the exploits so that Putin can continue spying on his staff.

Well there is always android.
