Apple approves first Telegram update since Russian Federation ban

Telegram's inability to update its app is now affecting users worldwide.

The founder of the messaging app Telegram, Mr. Pavel Durov, placed an accusation on Apple recently.

"This is a troubling state of affairs because users may be forcefully exposed to a range of subjectively undesirable content that they would never have signed up for otherwise, which can be particularly damaging, especially in situations where malicious actors attempt to intimidate, disparage, harass or harm individuals in any way", they wrote. The update also provides users with the option to stop updating their contacts and delete synced contacts in Privacy & Security settings, along with other small changes.

Telegram has finally rolled out a new update for its iOS app after nearly two months.

Apple yesterday 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. From the middle of April instant messenger users could not update it to the latest version.

Cortana is already accelerated on the new Hexagon DSP, but apparently support for other assistants is in the works. Recent leaks have also suggested that Dell is working on a rather unusual-sounding Snapdragon 850 device.

Version 4.8.2 of the application Telegram is available for download for devices with the iOS operating system. Apple did not immediately respond to requests for comment. The Federal Security Service of the said country demanded access to them.

Durov said that week that Apple has been blocking updates to the Telegram app globally even since the Russian government first asked it to remove the remove the app back in April given the firm's refusal to hand over decryption keys to the FSB. The app can now comply with the new data privacy laws in Europe.

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

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