Apple has agreed to comply with a Russian law that requires all smartphones, computers, and smart TVs sold in the country to come with Russian software pre-installed. According to Vedomosti, the company will prompt users to install government approved applications during setup.

A high-ranking source in the Ministry of Digital Industry told Vedomosti about reaching an agreement with Apple. The agreements stipulate that when you first turn on an Apple device purchased in Russia, during setup, the user will see a dialog box in which he will be asked to install applications from a list approved by the government by default, the source told Vedomosti. It will be possible to refuse the installation by unchecking the boxes in front of certain applications, explains the source of the publication.

Users will be presented with the new dialog starting April 1st.
