U.S. eases restrictions on Huawei, lifts ban for 90 days
The U.S. government scaled back on its decision in banning Huawei, temporarily lifting the restrictions they imposed on the smartphone company.
The U.S. Commerce Department has given Huawei a temporary license to work with American companies to support its current customer base. The temporary license will last for 90 days, or until August 19, 2019. Within this period, Huawei will be able to maintain their business with Google, Qualcomm, Intel, and other companies, to release updates, such as security fixes, to their existing products.
The temporary license only allows Huawei to maintain devices already out on the market. For its future devices, Huawei is still restricted from using technology and hardware sold or made by U.S. companies.
