ETTORE ROSMARINO: Fuck apple

Nino Nana: Fuck everyone

Mo Go: I am not buying apple products anymore . I heard google did the same thing I think I am going to buy Chinese phone from now on. They are cheaper better and more advanced in terms of technology. Hope soon we see Iran , Russia or china make new operating system so we don't have to use android. I already love Russian telegram and Chinese WeChat.

35 05: And to rednecks, this'll ONLY affect iranian PEOPLE NOT the iranian regime so any argument that this is to prevent the regime from doing whatever is irrelevant. And no, you can't use your alternative facts and say iranian people ordering food through those apps will result in any countries getting nuked!
And again to rednecks, Iran has kept its promises in the recent agreements, it's now the US that's been breaking most of the things it was supposed to be doing INCLUDING lifting sanctions (such as this one) that are not related to the iranian regime. No clue why the international community is so silent all of a sudden about the US breaching what it accepted to do legally!

35 05: This is NOT fair AT ALL! I'm glad I always refused to buy any Apple products over the years now. Shame on Apple!
Our only hope as people of this planet is that PEOPLE including companies would have eachothers' backs and not let sick politicians affect that. I feel pity for Apple and any other companies who don't stand for just that. This'll just 'make racism and hostility great again' among nations and the only losses at this point will be for Apple for losing a massive profit of about 1.5MILLION dollars (to be increased) and the US government for showing that THEY are the ones who don't want peace for people wherever. People will remember that this company has done this in the past and the next time they're buying a phone they'll know better than choosing to give their money to such a racist organisation and fortunately there are lots of other very decent brands out there to choose from and even if someone insisted on using their older Apple products, they'll just use the English ones or find other ways to use those apps cause people will be people and they will not stop their lives because someone's being a hypocrite.

eign: Seems fair to me, if Iran can impose embargo against US, they can equally impose embargo against them and Iran will loose out more

Faraaz Khan: Fuck you Apple. Overrated piece of shit

Gargamel Smurff: Wow man that's some scary shit

Michael Billings Cole: This is one reason why apple sucks no third party app store, not counting the fact that identity politics and all this other bullshit that, including sanctions, is going to cause World War 3 more, we take more, we take more, we take away from people more people are going to want to fight back. With heavier arms than just words. And sanctions?
