    Apple Watch US ban upheld – By Brian Heater (Techcrunch) / Dec 26, 2023

    A recent U.S. ban on Apple Watch imports will remain in place, after the Biden administration declined to veto an earlier ruling by the International Trade Commission. The ITC ruling goes into effect today.

    The company previously halted sales of the Apple Watch Series 9 and Ultra 2, in anticipation of the ban, pausing online sales on December 21 and in-store sales three days later.

    A statement issued this morning by the Office of the United States Trade Representative notes, “After careful consultations, Ambassador [Katherine] Tai decided not to reverse the ITC’s determination and the ITC’s decision became final on December 26, 2023.”
