Huawei’s short-term license from the U.S. Department of Commerce simply expired, making it tougher for U.S. customers to replace a number of the Chinese tech firm’s telephones.

In 2019, President Trump put Huawei and different Chinese corporations on the “Entity List,” successfully banning these firm from doing enterprise with the U.S. (so for Huawei that was mainly Google, whose Android working system is utilized by most non-iPhone handsets). But the Department of Commerce has been giving short-term licensing exceptions since then to maintain Huawei networks and consumer methods working easily. 

Now, the newest 90-day extension expired on Aug. 13 and it hasn’t been renewed.

Back in May, the U.S. department notified corporations that the extension “provides an opportunity for users of Huawei devices and telecommunication providers—particularly those in rural U.S.

The expired license is a part of the Trump’s administration ongoing crackdown on Chinese tech corporations, together with apps like TikTok.
