After the dramatic developments of yesterday which saw Google taking away Huawei’s access to the Android operating system for its smartphones, there has been temporary reprieve for the Chinese phone maker. The US Government has given Huawei a temporary 90-day license to continue operations and let it be business as usual. This means Huawei can continue to purchase orders from American companies, do business with American companies and also roll out Android software updates for its existing phones. However, the last bit, the one about software updates for its Huawei and Honor branded phones, comes with a caveat.

“Today, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) of the U.S. Department of Commerce announced that it would issue a Temporary General License (TGL) amending the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to authorize specific, limited engagement in transactions involving the export, reexport, and transfer of items – subject to the EAR – to Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. and its sixty-eight non-U.S. affiliates, which were added to the Bureau’s Entity List on May 16, 2019. This license will be effective on May 20, 2019 and lasts 90 days,” the US Department of Commerce has said in an official statement.

The important date to focus on is May 16, 2019. According to the conditions of the temporary 90-day license given to Huawei, the smartphone maker can roll out updates for phones that were made available to the public on or before May 16, 2019. This includes software support, updates and security patches that may be essential for the company’s Huawei and Honor brand of Android phones.
