Telegram confirms that Apple’s problem was Telemojis – Literature, film, and other forms of artistic expression have conditioned us to expect a good and bad guy to emerge from every story. They will either be black and white, with unquestionably good and unquestionably dangerous, or increasingly grey with nuance and nuanced edges. Characters have several layers, like a great guy who sips milk straight from the tetra brik at home and a jerk who always offers a friendly hello to his neighbors.
The reality, however, has shown us that there will also be conflicts between two good guys or two bad guys. One example of the latter is the encounter through which the SGAE and the tuna became aware of one another, a conflict that, in my opinion, had very little in common with Alien vs. Predator. I’m not trying to imply that prickly pears and SGAE are harmless. No, you won’t be able to say both are equally good.
I’d include a lengthy lyrical excerpt, but I don’t want to irritate the SGAE or give ideas to the tuna, so let’s move on to more pressing matters, like the news that really matters and the fact that two antagonists in a story can both appear to be dangerous. It all started the day before yesterday when Telegram complained that Apple was being slow to release an update. Be careful though; it wasn’t just any replacement, huh?? It was a game-changing alternative. Regular Telegram updates are valuable, but this one has the potential to be the apex of all apex-breaking updates. It was revolutionary, not a little or a lot.
Actually, Apple only released the replacement yesterday. That’s great news, albeit Telegram hasn’t confirmed if this is the long-awaited revolutionary update or, rather, an update that was already released to the Apple store. approval from a superior officer and submission to the App Store. Feelings, suspense, and an upset stomach… Were we about to witness the spectacular replacement, or merely the appetiser? What’s more, why didn’t Apple recognise and include this replacement? There was a gnawing rigidity throughout the space.
The mystery, however, has been solved since, as we shall see in gizchina, it’s possible that each and every inquiry has an answer. Telemoji is an animated version of Apple’s emoji designs, and reports say that the company withheld a replacement for it on Telegram. The App Store review team found that some of Telegram’s new emoji were visually similar to Apple’s proprietary emoji. Developers are restricted from making apps that “confuse users into thinking they are utilizing an Apple product.” This includes not imitating Apple’s emoji design, as stated expressly in Rule 5.2.5 of the App Store standards.
I’ll circle back to the Cupertino folks’ potential role as the Spanish society representing (a subset of) national authors in light of the SGAE vs. prickly pear conflict for a moment. And it’s that protecting intellectual property is absolutely legit; no one disputes that. But then to go on and use emojis based on theirs in the context of a program made for their operating system seems to go a little far.
But Telegram has its own take on things as well. First of all, for making the Telemojis without paying attention to the terms Apple sets forth for developers that want to have their products available in the App Store. And I didn’t realize how much until I started researching Apple’s spending habits. But beyond this threshold… “Game-changing upgrade” Should we consider the addition of animated emojis that only premium (paid) Telegram users may use to be a game-changing update? I wonder what they’ll charge for it the day they implement a truly groundbreaking new feature.
