Iran Nearly Done to Replace Android with Indigenous OS
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Minister of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi said the country has almost completed a 100% homemade operating system for cellphones to replace the American OS, which has time and again stopped offering service to Iranian users on the pretext of Washington’s unilateral sanctions.

On the sidelines of the ceremony of opening of 11 smart bike stations in the capital city of Tehran on Tuesday morning, Azari Jahromi told reporters that the operating system is full, but has an extension and with greater autonomy than other operating systems, it does not allow a third party to interfere.

He explained that since last year a number of Iranian software has been removed from mobile phones by American companies for various reasons, which was a blow to a large number of Iranian businesses.

Azari Jahromi said the move started from Apple and Google followed it and caused the young people's business to cope with problems.

“A person or group abroad, under different pretexts, removed mobile apps from the mobile phones and they were removed from customers’ lists," the official noted.

He stressed that during this time, "We were using the Iranian youth and launched the Iranian mobile operating system."

Azeri Jahromi pointed out that during harsh economic conditions, "We should not be indifferent in this regard", and so the 10-12 base services that were used and sanctioned by the United States, such as the cloud app and the map, which were repeatedly sanctioned, were set up in Iran.

Back in September 2017, Digital service distributor Google Play followed Apple’s lead in removing Iranian apps from its store, citing US sanctions against the Islamic Republic.

Companies such as Google and Apple were hosting Iranian apps reportedly under a license issued by former President Barack Obama’s administration in 2014.

According to Tyler Cullis, an associate attorney specializing in US economic sanctions and export controls, the unilateral sanctions cover virtually all transactions between the US and Iran, “including the provision of goods, technology, and services.”

Iran has about 48 million smartphone users in the country of more than 80 million. Apple’s market in Iran is related to iPhone holders who number in the upwards of 7 million. Google is the top visited website in Iran according to Alexa ranking.

There are currently thousands of applications in Iran developed by startups which were hosted by the likes of Apple and Google.
