CTOnews.com, December 18, the Beeper team announced the launch of the Beeper Mini app on December 8, which claims to be a complete reverse of the iMessage communication protocol, allowing Android users to have a blue bubble chat experience.

▲ source Beeper blog (same below) but 24 hours after the app was launched, Apple took steps to "block" the "fake credentials" it called, claiming it was to protect users' iMessage privacy and security:

We have taken steps to prevent the use of fake credentials to gain access to iMessage to protect our users.

These technologies pose significant risks to user security and privacy, including potential metadata leaks and enabling spam and phishing attacks. We will continue to update to protect our users.

However, on December 12, Beeper Mini announced a resurrection, but then asked users to log in to the app using Apple ID, and messages will be sent and received through the user's e-mail address.

Apple is also unwilling to "admit defeat", so it waged a "tug of war" with Beeper Mini's development team Beeper, with one side "blocking" credentials and the other "creating" new credentials.

CTOnews.com noted that Beeper Mini was "blocked" by Apple on December 14, allegedly affecting 5% of users, but on the same day, the Beeper team announced that it had successfully changed its credentials and resumed normal operation of the application.

On December 17, Beeper Mini was again banned by Apple, this time claiming that "more than 60% of users were unable to use the app service."

At the moment, the Beeper team claims that they are "working hard to solve the problem" and that users may see a "new Mac" added to their Apple ID.

It is clear that the tug-of-war between Beeper Mini and Apple will continue until one side finally concedes defeat, but Beeper's CEO Eric Migicovsky also retweeted a post today claiming that Apple will legally require Beeper Mini apps to stop serving.

CTOnews.com continues to follow the incident and will bring follow-up reports.
