Telegram creator urged to abandon iPhone in favor of Android

Pavel Durov, who is behind the popular Telegram messenger and one of the founders of VKontakte, made an interesting statement in Durov’s Chat.

In response to a question from one of the users, Durov commented on the blocking of the social network Parler, which is popular among Donald Trump’s supporters, urging users to switch from the iOS platform on which Apple smartphones work to Android.

Durov’s entire statement looks like this:

The Apple-Google duopoly poses a much bigger problem to freedom than Twitter.

Apple is the more dangerous of the two because it can completely restrict the applications you use, while on Android you can install programs as APKs from other sources. This is why I urge users to switch to Android from iOS – the least they can do to keep information flowing freely.

On the iOS side, we’re working on a feature-rich web app that will run almost as smoothly in Safari as a full-fledged app. The difference between the two still exists, but it can work in extreme cases. “

In October last year, Telegram developers already suggested switching from iPhone to Android.
