Apple Has Been Blocking Telegram From Updating Its App Since April

Russian Telecom Watchdog Gives Apple One Month to Respond to Request to Remove Telegram from App Store

Mostly due to the fact that it was banned for refusing to hand over private encryption keys that would allow the Kremlin to spy on users.

Durov has said that Russian Federation accounts for just 7 per cent of the Telegram user base, and claims Apple has nevertheless "restricted" updates for users around the world since mid-April.

Telegram and its faster counterpart, Telegram X, were briefly pulled from the App Store in February, with Apple citing "inappropriate content" for app's removal.

Because Apple is now blocking Telegram updates globally, Durov said that his team can't fix certain issues in the app and its users can't get new features, nor Telegram's new GDPR-compliant privacy policy. This has been happening since April when Russian Federation first sent its request to Google and Apple to block push notifications and updates on for the app.

Shortly after, Russian Federation also blocked a number of IP addresses from Amazon and Google.

Such was the frustration amongst Red Devils that a lot of them sent angry messages to Mourinho on his Instagram page. Courtois said: "Yeah, I think so".

Over the past year, Apple has met with Snap Inc., Pinterest Inc. and other companies about participating in an Apple network that would distribute ads across their collective apps, the people said.

So, in one example used by the report, Snapchat users searching for the National Football League might see an advertisement for ticket re-selling apps like StubHub.

"We believe we did the only possible thing, preserving the right of our users to privacy in a troubled country", Durov said earlier today. "Unfortunately, Apple didn't side with us".

"As a result, we've also been unable to fully comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for our EU-users by the deadline of May 25, 2018". Apple is yet to comment on these serious allegations that raise questions over the iPhone maker's swift compliance with government requests even if some requests affect user privacy and security. Russia's Federal Security Service wanted access to Telegram's users' encrypted messages, saying it was necessary to monitor potential terrorists. "We are continuing our efforts to resolve the situation".
