Microsoft mandates Chinese staff to use iPhones, not Android


Microsoft has ordered its staff in China to use iPhones for their work starting in September.

The decision has more to do with standardising use of the Microsoft Authenticator and Identity Pass app among all personnel rather than security concerns about the Android mobile operating system.
