Telegram Was Removed From Apple's App Store. Here's Why


Apple removed Telegram’s official app from its iOS App Store a few hours after Telegram launched an updated Telegram X app for Android. Telegram X  was under testing on iOS, and it was also removed from the App Store. 
Telegram's CEO Pavel Durov tweeted, "We were alerted by Apple that inappropriate content was made available to our users and both apps were taken off the App Store."
“Once we have protections in place we expect the apps to be back on the App Store,” he added

While it is not specified when Telegram will return to the App Store, TechCrunch speculates that inappropriate content on the messaging service had no particular filters for objectionable material, mechanisms to report it, and the ability to block users from the service.
It’s possible that some content was making it through any filters in place.

Telegram definitely has porn. Furthermore, the removal could be related to the use of the app by terrorists and extremists as a possible cause for the removal. Apple’s guidelines do prohibit “upsetting or offensive content,” that encourages “illegal or reckless use of weapons and dangerous objects.” Another reason could be cryptocurrency scams that have risen in popularity by offering bogus initial coin offering (ICO) scams.
