Huawei can issue phone updates for 90 days under temporary extension

Existing Huawei phone owners can breathe easy just for a bit

Responding to Google's partial suspension of Huawei business, Lu Kang, spokesperson for the Foreign Ministry, said on Monday: "We have read reports and noted that Google has suspended business with Huawei requiring the transfer of hardware, software and technical services and suspended the provision of relevant services to Huawei".

If you own a Huawei device, you may no longer be able to access updates from Google as well as access to the latter's proprietary apps and services.

Google, on the other hand, said in a statement, "complying with the order and reviewing the implications".

Huawei has denied, and keeps denying the accusations. And theft of trade secrets is a criminal matter, not a national-security one. The ban means that Huawei will not be given advanced access to Google security updates, resulting in a sizeable disparity between the general release of the update and when it will be available to Huawei users.

Such a temporary license has been granted only once before, for Huawei rival ZTE Corp., last year, Wolf added. But many feared that the Chinese government was using Huawei products to spy on people.

US Americans believe war with Iran is coming
Shanahan's statements come amid heated verbal exchanges between US President Donald Trump and Iranian officials. Earlier this month, four oil tankers off the coast of the United Arab Emirates were reportedly sabotaged.

Wilbur Ross of the Commerce Department yesterday in a statement said the time frame will give operators ample time to make alternative arrangements and the Department space to determine the appropriate long term measures for Americans and foreign telecommunications providers that now rely on Huawei equipment for critical services.

If this stalemate continues without a proper explanation from the parties involved- US Government, Google and Huawei, Consumers will be at the suffering end for no fault of theirs.

Without Google's participation, Huawei's app store plan has a dim future. That's pretty significant considering all Huawei phones operate on Android. That might hurt Huawei where consumers can pick other brands that carry the full suite of Google features. They could well be unable to use Google apps such as YouTube or Maps.

"As one of Android's key global partners, we have worked closely with their open-source platform to develop an ecosystem that has benefited both users and the industry", it said.

Huawei will continue to build a safe and sustainable software ecosystem, in order to provide the best experience for all users globally.
