Authorities raid Apple’s offices in South Korea prior to iPhone X release

According a report by the UK’s Metro, authorities raided Apple’s headquarters based in South Korea right before the November 24th release date of iPhone X. Now that the situation is rising, many are believing that the act by the authorities may not be as legitimate as they would like it to be.

According to the article in Metro, the unbelievably coincidental timing of these raids may have been due to South Korean government’s strong relations with tech giants based in the country. Track record of the country’s government mixing with the domestic businesses is not very clean either.

According to the publishing in Metro, Apple’s HQ in South Korea welcomed unexpected visitors from the authorities who were there to ask questions about Apple’s business practices. Metro also noted that this event raises the question whether the government is trying to sabotage the success of the iPhone X in South Korea after being successful across the world.

There have been incidents in the past where the authorities have been accused of using their power to help flounder the competition and give local businesses an advantage.

It may be too early to claim that the likes of LG and Samsung have been the businesses behind this unexpected move by the authorities, but if the news breaks someday, it won’t be a huge surprise.
