This issue is being discussed in media around the world and in this regard you can read in last Thursday's edition in the newspaper Meter of London. The British media warns that Apple offices in South Korea were investigated earlier this week by state researchers. The article reports that the authorities visited the offices of the technology giant in Seoul and questioned the business practices that the company is doing.
The raid is said to be part of an ongoing investigation that began after Apple took steps to address a number of concerns that local authorities raised about unfair contracts that the company had signed with South Korean firms in charge of repairing their devices. However, the incident has led some to wonder if the South Korean authorities are rather trying to hamper the success of the iPhone X in the region, which is home by nature of its market rival, Samsung.
Lee Jae-yong, interim president of Samsung, was jailed for five years for corruption in August 2017. He was charged with bribery, perjury and other crimes after an investigation that led to the dismissal of the then president of South Korea, Park Geun-hye. Also known as Jay Y Lee, the 49-year-old business mogul was accused of making payments in exchange for political favors.
