  2. The US decided to postpone its ban on TikTok downloads after parent firm ByteDance reached agreements with Oracle and Walmart. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross said in a statement Saturday that "recent positive developments" meant the deadline for the ban has now been moved to 11:59 p.m. on September 27.
  3. A federal judge has temporarily blocked the Trump administration's WeChat download ban. The US Department of Commerce had issued an order that would have required Apple and Google to remove WeChat from their respective app marketplaces in the US.
