Detained Huawei CFO Uses More Apple Gear Than You Do

From the “this must be really embarrassing” department comes this story about Huawei’s CFO Meng Wanzhou who is currently being detained by Canadian authorities at the request of the US on allegations of breaching US sanctions against Iran. When she got nabbed, she had a very interesting array of gear on her person:

When Canadian police arrested Meng Wanzhou at the behest of the U.S. on a Dec. 1 stopover at Vancouver International Airport, they seized her iPhone 7 Plus, a MacBook Air and an iPad Pro, according to a court filing Friday.

Keep in mind that she could easily be using a Huawei phone like a P20 Pro, a Huawei MateBook, and a Huawei tablet instead of all of that Apple gear that she was arrested with. To be fair, she did have a Huawei Mate 20 RS smartphone on her person as well. But seeing as lawyers wanted a copy of the data stored on the the Apple, and for those devices to be subsequently sealed, it’s a safe bat that the Apple gear were her daily drivers. What’s ironic about this is that Huawei flips out when anyone else who works for them is caught using Apple gear. Take this case for example. But I guess that Meng gets a free pass seeing as her dad runs Huawei. Still, this has to be embarrassing that even the CFO of Huawei doesn’t even use her companies gear and would rather use Apple gear instead.
