Commerce Department cites 'recent positive developments' for delay

Making good on its threats aimed at Chinese tech firms, the U.S. government has announced it will severely restrict the use of TikTok and WeChat starting Sunday.

The U.S. Commerce Department on Saturday announced a one-week delay until Sept. 27 in an order issued Friday that was set to require Apple Inc. and Alphabet Inc.'s Google to remove the TikTok app for download.

The order said in "light of recent positive developments" and at U.S. President Donald Trump's direction the order will be delayed until Sept. 27 at 11:59 p.m.

A person briefed on the matter said the delay gives TikTok owner ByteDance, Oracle and Walmart time to finalize the deal to create a new company called TikTok Global to handle TikTok's U.S. operations.
