Jeremy Burge: ‘Macs Bought in China Can No Longer Display the Taiwan Flag Emoji, No Matter Which Region Is Set in System Prefs’

Worth reading the entire thread, including the section on China pressuring airlines to refer to Taiwan as “China Taiwan”.

I’m curious how this works technically — is it all Macs, or only the models with the T2 system on a chip (and thus a built-in iOS computer subsystem).

Update: Looks like it might just be a bug. And even if it’s not a bug, you can get around this “feature” by manually editing the plist file where the device region is specified.
