Telegram users get their stickers back as Apple passes update
Crypto chat Cooks an update
Under attack from Russian regulators, embattled encrypted chat app Telegram has apparently resolved a side-spat with Apple.
For around six weeks, Telegram's developers had tried to ship an update to its app, but on May 31, founder Pavel Durov complained that iOS 11.4 blocked updates.
On May 30, Roskomnadzor asked Apple to pull the app entirely, and to stop sending push notifications of updates – so it wasn't necessarily unreasonable for Durov to put two and two together for a result that Cupertino was complying with the Kremlin.
However, on June 1, the update was apparently accepted, with Telegram announcing its availablility and Durov posting an appreciative Tweet.
Aaaand Telegram for iOS v.4.8.2 is finally out! Get it for new privacy settings and iOS 11.4 fixes, including the issue with stickers.— Telegram Messenger (@telegram) June 1, 2018
There you go, Telegrammers: you have your stickers back. ®
