According to RJ van Spaandonk, chief executive of the Core group, Apple’s head office in the US decided not to distribute the iPhone in South Africa.

If a South African wants to import the gadget, the user would have to bypass the official network, but Apple already warned that unblocking the phone illegally would cause irreparable damage to the iPhone’s software.

This is despite demand for Apple’s products growing significantly in South Africa with a growth rate of 47% in sales last year.
