US lifts iPhone ban on Iran

In a 'positive step', US is reported to have lifted the ban on mobile phones and other communication devices beside software and other related service to Iran.

The move comes just weeks ahead of elections in Iran.

The decision allows Apple's iPhone now finding a place on the shelves of Iranian markets.

The move is intended to promote Iranians' political freedom, countering what the US describes as Tehran's efforts to "silence its people"

"The people of Iran should be able to communicate and access information without being subject to reprisals by their government," the US treasury department said in a statement.
