UK government’s latest U-turn leaves Apple’s iMessage future in doubt

The UK government has denied reports that it has backed down on its Online Safety Bill, throwing the future of Apple’s popular iMessage service into doubt. The latest twist in the saga follows concerns about Apple removing iMessage from the UK. The British government had reportedly requested that the company remove end-to-end encryption on the platform in the name of security. Now, a new report claims that the government is planning to drop the specific measure targeting this, a move the government has since denied. 

The Government had reportedly agreed to drop the Online Safety Bill measure that forced a requirement on messaging services like iMessage and WhatsApp to allow messages to be scanned for illegal content.
