Apple has removed the Russian section of its website from public access, redirecting users to the support center. This change appears to have little impact on Russian consumers, as the Russian and Belarusian sections of the site haven’t been updated since March 2022.

Since the beginning of the Ukrainian crisis, Apple stopped posting information about new products in the Russian and Belarusian sections of its website. Instead, these sections continued to display products that were current at the time, including the iPhone 13 and Apple Watch Series 7. When attempting to access the online store, the site displays a message stating, “The Apple Store is currently closed.” Meanwhile, the Belarusian section of the site still functions, showing information about outdated products, including the iPhone 13 and Apple Watch Series 7.

Despite its departure from Russia, Apple’s iPhone continues to hold the largest market share among all manufacturers, accounting for 29% of revenue in the third quarter, according to analysts at the MTS retail network. In terms of unit sales, Chinese brands lead the Russian market.
