The founder of the mobile instant messaging service called Telegram, had some rather nasty words for iPhone users and Apple as a whole.

Pavel Durov, the founder of Telegram, has shared comments on behalf of his company in a New York Times story with regards to Apple's relationship with the Chinese market.

Durov said: "Apple is very efficient at pursuing their business model, which is based on selling overpriced, obsolete hardware to customers locked in their ecosystem. Every time I have to use an iPhone to test our iOS app, I feel like I'm thrown back into the Middle Ages. The iPhone's 60Hz displays can't compete with the 120Hz displays of modern Android phones that support much smoother animations."

Although we don't understand what iPhone displays have to do with Telegram, Pavel Durov goes on to say: "You are only allowed to use apps that Apple lets you install via their 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, which – thanks to Apple – now has complete control over the apps and data of all of its citizens who rely on iPhones. iPhone users are slaves!"
