Recent Exemption to Allow iPhone to Enter South Korean Marketplace
Getting back to Apple’s international expansion, a new decision will allow the iPhone to finally be sold in South Korea. Per the Wall Street Journal, a Korean Communications Commission (KCC) rule specifying that domestic technology must be used for location services on phones was removed, clearing the way for the iPhone to be permitted within the South Korean market.
It’s currently unknown as to exactly when when the iPhone will show up in South Korea, though reports say Apple has long been in talks with the country’s second-largest wireless provider, KT Corp.
Apple has yet to offer any comment regarding an official release date or final details regarding a South Korea-specific iPhone.
