Despite Apple leaving Russia, the iPhone 14 will still be sold there.

Despite Apple ceasing the sale of new products in March, Russians will still be able to purchase the iPhone 14 when it is released thanks to a parallel import programme.

 

Following Russia’s ongoing invasion of the Ukraine, Apple left Russia in March along with many other businesses. Apple stopped exporting goods to the nation’s retail outlets, even though services like Apple Pay aren’t available there.

 

Although Apple won’t be sending the iPhone 14 to Russia directly, potential buyers there still have the opportunity to purchase the most recent devices.

A senior government source confirmed that the iPhone 14 would be covered by the programme, according to Reuters. Russia has a system in place that enables stores to import goods from abroad without requesting permission from the trademark owner.

 

Denis Manturov, minister of trade and industry, responded “Why not?” when questioned about importation of the iPhone 14. Yes, there will be opportunities for people to purchase these phones if they so choose.

 

Despite there being no authorised imports from Apple, the most recent models are already available in the nation.

 

Preorders for the 128GB iPhone 14 began on Thursday morning with Carrier MTS, with prices beginning at 84,990 roubles ($1,398). MTS cautioned that orders would not be delivered for up to 120 days and that it might cancel orders if it had problems bringing them into the nation.
