Tumblr Removed from App Store

Most of us have a Instagram, Facebook, and/or Twitter, but how many of us have a Tumblr? While most view the platform as simply another media platform, Apple found something that they did not like.

Tumblr was removed from the App Store due to the discovery of child porn on the social media platform during a routine audit. iOS does these usually to see if the apps have content filters that can prevent the spread of things like underage porn, according to the Verge.

However, this is not the first time that Apple has booted an app from the App Store. Earlier just this year, Telegram was booted for the exact same reason.

Tumblr issued a statement stating that they removed the content in question and are working with Apple to rejoin the App Store.

Tumblr has been known as a platform that is permissive towards adult content, and has even been involved in battles with the governments of South Korea and Indonesia over their app.

Only time will tell if Tumblr is allowed to come back into Apple’s App Store, but the good news for them is that they are still allowed in the Play Store (for now).
