  • 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. The burden falls squarely on Apple to justify blocking global updates to Telegram, a hugely popular messaging app.

While App Store is considered one of Jobs', and Apple's, great achievements, it does lag behind Google Play in downloads (70%), although consumers purchase more on App Store (66%).

Encrypted messaging app Telegram is feeling the squeeze out of Russian Federation, where regulators are not letting up in their ongoing attempts to block the app because its publishers refuse to provide regulators with access to messages on the platform.

On Monday, Russia's communications watchdog said it had requested Apple block push notifications for Telegram users in Russia, which would mean users would not receive alerts for new messages and thus render it less useful.

Professionals from Morgan Stanley Research released a report on income the "Apple" of the company from the official store and Google with Google Play.

App updates are essential to bolster the security of users and their data, and to comply with privacy laws and regulation. Apple itself has not announced anything about the situation, and is unlikely to comment. On average, these users have more than 100 apps installed on their devices, while they use over 40 each month.

"Apple has been preventing Telegram from updating its iOS apps globally ever since the Russian authorities ordered Apple to remove Telegram from the App Store", Durov said today. "Unfortunately, Apple didn't side with us". We believe we did the only possible thing, preserving the right of our users to privacy in a troubled country.

"As a result, we've also been unable to fully comply with GDPR for our European Union users by the deadline of 25 May 2018". Russia's Federal Security Service wanted access to Telegram's users' encrypted messages, saying it was necessary to monitor potential terrorists.

"Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience".
