TEHRAN, Aug. 28 (Xinhua) -- The U.S. technology company nike air max thea grĂ¥ , Nvidia Corporation, continues to block Iranian internet users from accessing parts of its website, Financial Tribune daily reported on Monday.

The software download page of Nvidia does not allow Iranian IP addresses to access updated software. The site now says "403 -- Forbidden."

Nvidia's another website, geforce, is also blocked to Iranian web users. That website says "access denied" followed by a message saying "the request was blocked by the security rules."

When the user contact the company's online help service to ask why Iranians have been suddenly banned from using their software nike air max thea hvit , Nvidia responded that "we regret to inform you that Geforce NOW and Geforce Experience is not available in embargoed nations."

Prior to Iran's international nuclear deal in 2015, several software companies in the United States and Europe blocked Iranians from accessing downloads.

However, since then several companies quietly removed restrictions on Iranian Internet users.

Nvidia's measure comes just days after Apple began removing Iranian applications from its iOS application store.

On Thursday, Apple removed Snapp, a ride-hailing app similar to Uber that is popular in Iran nike air max thea svart , from its app stores. That was followed by the removal in recent weeks of apps for food delivery, shopping and other services.

In a message to Iranian developers whose apps were affected by the ban, Apple said, "under the U.S. sanctions regulations, the app store cannot host nike air max thea norge , distribute or do business with apps or developers connected to certain U.S. embargoed countries."

In January, Apple shut down a number of Iran-based iOS apps from the app store, including online e-commerce service Digikala.

"Since Apple takes a cut of all app store purchases, sales from Iranian apps generate revenue and are thus in violation of U.S. law," Apple said.

In response nike air max 2017 norge , Iran's minister of telecommunication and information technology said Friday that his country would legally sue the decision by Apple for removing Iranian apps from its app store.

Apple holds 11 percent share of the Iranian cellphone market, however, it has not observed the Iranian consumer rights, said Mohammad Javad Azari-Jahromi.
