Apple introduces new App Store Connect app on iOS for developers

Apple introduces new App Store Connect app on iOS for developers

APPLE HAS APPROVED an updated version of the Telegram app, just days after company chief Pavel Durov complained that the firm had been blocking its updates. That is, until now.

Apple controls the apps in its App Store. Neither side explained what really went on behind the scenes and why Apple stopped approving updates for everyone around the world when the app is only banned in Russian Federation.

This post was syndicated from Digital Trends. In February, the iPhone maker temporarily yanked Telegram from its App Store over "inappropriate content".

Apple isn't new to the idea of selling ads in apps.

The watchdog also requested Apple no longer make the app available for download in Russian Federation. In April, a Moscow court banned the app following a long-running battle between authorities and Telegram, which has a reputation for securely encrypted communications.

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

The inability to update the app also caused the company to miss a critical deadline to make the app compliant with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the new European Union data-privacy regulation. "If you enabled link previews in Secret Chats", Telegram says, meanwhile, "you can now disable them in Privacy & Security settings".

"We believe we did the only possible thing, preserving the right of our users to privacy in a troubled country", he added. Apple, on the other hand, has generally championed user privacy and also fought back against government intervention. As a result, we've also been unable to fully comply with GDPR for our EU-users by the deadline of May 25, 2018. Either way, you may want to download the iOS update if you don't want to keep seeing broken features.

The ban has provoked repeated protests in Russian Federation by thousands who use and support the widely used messaging service.

And now it is reported that the ban on Telegram update on the iOS platform is cleared.
