Apple has started deleting all WhatsApp Sticker apps from the App Store as these apps have found to be violating the company's guidelines for developers, according to WABetaInfo - a fan website that tracks upcoming WhatsApp features. The page was updated multiple times over the weekend, each update containing variants on "no really, we'll get it fixed very soon".

Tumblr gave more details about why it was taken off Apple's store after being approached by tech news site Cnet with a claim that indecent images of children were the cause. All of the game deals for Android are part of the Cyber Week sale that will end on Tuesday, November 27, 2018.

"We continue to work to restore our app to the iOS App Store", declared Tumblr in a statement.

As a workaround for anyone who might have deleted it, Digital Trends suggested navigating to the Purchased section in the App Store and reinstalling the app from there, which it said has had mixed results. It is rumored that with search functionality broken, Apple took down the app because it served NSFW content to users which goes against the App Store's guidelines.

Stingray blamed for fatal Tasmanian attack
A 42-year-old man has died after a suspected stingray attack off the Tasmanian coast, Australian police say. Commonly found in tropical waters, stingrays are a flattish, diamond-shaped fish that rarely attack humans.

Tumblr says that every image uploaded is compared to known material, but after a routine audit, it was discovered that child pornography had made its way onto the platform "that had not yet been included in the industry database".

And not just generic mature content, mind, but explicit media featuring child sexual exploitation and abuse. "We immediately removed this content", he added.

Tumblr partners with organizations including the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) to compare uploaded material to databases of unacceptable and illegal content. Apple had previously removed Telegram from the App Store since it was being used to share child pornography.
