After Almost 2 Months, Apple Stops Blocking Telegram Updates

Indian Activists Ask Messaging Apps to Amend Group Chat Feature to Prevent Unwanted Invites Telegram: Apple has blocked our updates since Russian ban
Katie Ramirez | 05 June, 2018, 11:02

Apple Inc (AAPL.O) on Monday issued new review guidelines for its lucrative App Store platform, after it moved to block plans by Steam, the biggest distributor of PC-based video games, to extend its reach into iPhones and iPads. That is, until now.

Under attack from Russian regulators, embattled encrypted chat app Telegram has apparently resolved a side-spat with Apple.

This post was syndicated from Digital Trends. Telegram's inability to update its app is now affecting users worldwide.

Hello. Add your message here.

But the new rules say that so-called remote mirroring apps, which beam the screen of a desktop computer to an iPhone, can allow purchases outside Apple's control as long as the transactions are processed on the desktop device and not the iPhone.

The update brings a few features in the section of the privacy settings, and also in the hidden chats. "We believe we did the only possible thing, preserving the right of our users to privacy in a troubled country".

The privacy and level of security for those in the European Union is going to be much lower, since the app is unable to comply with the GDPR. "We are continuing our efforts to resolve the situation and will keep you updated". The country's Federal Security Service has been demanding access to those keys, citing Telegram's use among terrorists, including a suicide bomber who killed 15 people in St. Petersburg in April 2017.

After Russia's decision to block the popular messaging service, protest rallies in Moscow against what demonstrators called internet censorship drew thousands.

Governments have stepped up pressure on technology companies to more actively police content in more forms, including applications.

The cloud-based instant messaging service Telegram said its iOS updating is now available.

Apple has said its policy is to notify developers when their applications are removed at a government's request.
