It should be noted that the “Megaphone” had ceased to partner with Apple in 2010, the negotiations on the continuation of cooperation continued in 2013. According to unconfirmed information from the same source, the visit of the head of Apple Tim Cook in Russia is still held (magazine Forbes suggested the probability of such a visit in the message of August 28 this year), Apple CEO allegedly was seen at the head office of the operator on September 4. Such information may well be true, Tim Cook as chairman could personally affect change in the conditions of the contract, as managers Apple within six months of unsuccessful negotiations failed to reach a solution acceptable to both sides.
