Facebook stops Huawei from pre-installing their apps

123RF

Huawei has been blocked from installing Facebook-owned apps, including WhatsApp and Instagram before shipping them out to buyers.

Those who purchase the smartphones will be able to manually install them if they choose to.

This comes as part of restrictions by the US government from doing business with the Chinese tech giant over security concerns.
