We received initial notice of pending changes in Iran last year, on 15
March 2022:

A few months later, on 10 May 2022, we were given more finalized notice of
the implementation details and made the corresponding changes:

These changes have been present in the distribution since version 2022b,
which was released on 11 August 2022.

This problem cause so many problem specially in smartphone that due to lack

Unfortunately, there's not much we can do on our end to further encourage
downstream vendors to update their copies of our data.  Each maintainer of
operating systems, servers, and other platforms has to choose to take the
update and deploy it to their customers, and if some devices are old and
out of support, they may not ever receive them.
