Practically all of us know one of the main founders of Telegram, Pável Dúrov, who does not usually cut a hair when it comes to commenting on any issue that has to do with technology, and with the current panorama of lawsuits between one and the other (Epic against Apple), or the role that some of these technologies play in a world where one of its main poles revolves around China, with all that that means. So Pavel Dúrov took advantage of an article published by the New York Times on “Apple’s relationship with China and its participation in large-scale surveillance and censorship at the behest of China”, to offer his point of view and give his opinion. Especially because it puts those from Cupertino in the sights of its attacks, a company that is not going through its best moment and to which, as they say vulgarly, “a skinny dog, everything is fleas.” Is there anyone who has not already given his particular match to those of Tim Cook? The iPhone lives in the Middle Ages The founder of Telegram has declared that Apple’s operating system perceives it as from the “Middle Ages” and that all those who use an iPhone are, in reality, “digital slaves”. While that might seem like enough, there is more, like the take on that New York Times article stating that Apple’s policies are highly regarded by “the Communist Party of China.” On his official Telegram channel, Pável Dúrvol went further, publishing that “Apple is very efficient in achieving its business model, which is based on the sale of obsolete and expensive hardware to customers trapped in its ecosystem.” So much so that “every time I have to use an iPhone to test our iOS app, I feel like I’m going back to the Middle Ages. The 60Hz screens on the iPhone can’t compete with the 120Hz screens on modern Android phones. that support much smoother animations. ” Regarding iPhone users, he stated that the worst part of Apple’s technology is not because their devices are “clumsier” or have “outdated hardware”, but that those who use them are basically “Apple’s digital slaves. “. “You can only use applications that Apple allows you to install through its App Store, and you can only use Apple’s iCloud to natively back up your data […] It’s no wonder that Apple’s totalitarian approach is so appreciated by the Communist Party of China that, thanks to Apple, it now has full control over the apps and data of all its citizens who depend on iPhones.”
