Report: Apple agrees to accept product inspections from Chinese government

Updated

Apple has agreed to let the Chinese government conduct security inspections on its products, according to The Beijing News. The report claims that Apple CEO Tim Cook agreed the company would fully cooperate with the government during a December meeting. There have long been alleged issues between Apple and the Chinese government regarding the security of Apple’s products. Cook met with an official over security in October of last year. In August, the Chinese government refuted a report which claimed that it was banning Apple products from government procurement lists. [via ZDNet]
