"Despite repeated efforts by CSW to get a response from Apple, Tim Cook or any of our representatives, we have not been able to succeed," the organization explains.

In CSW's 2020 study on Telegram, the alliance claims the platform is being used for inciting hostile, and extreme purposes. Also, Apple decided to ban social network Parler for the same reasons.
