Telegram CEO and founder Pavel Durov blamed Apple’s App Store review process for taking More than two weeks.
In his Telegram channel, Durov says that an update to Telegram for iOS has been stuck for more than 2 weeks with no feedback from the company over why or when it will be approved. The update is about “to revolutionize how people express themselves in messaging“.
If Telegram, one of the top 10 most popular apps globally, is receiving this treatment, one can only imagine the difficulties experienced by smaller app developers
Moreover, the CEO Pavel Durov also expressed his anger by saying about the 30% tax:
This harm goes on top of the 30% tax Apple and Google take from app developers – which, according to them, is supposed to pay for the resources needed to review apps. The regulators in the EU and elsewhere are slowly starting to look into these abusive practices. But the economic damage that has already been inflicted by Apple on the tech industry won’t be undone.
It’s not yet clear why Apple is delaying the latest Telegram update.
And it’s not the first time that Durov has blamed Apple for its app review processes. In 2018, Apple had been blocking updates to the Telegram iOS app after Russia banned Telegram. A day after Durov posted about the issue, Apple approved an update.
