Apple is restoring Mac users that were banned after using Beeper on iPhone

Apple has started lifting iMessage bans on Mac users who previously lost access after granting access to Beeper, but it remains unclear why the bans were imposed in the first place.


In mid-January, Apple began banning a handful of Mac owners from the iMessage platform after granting Beeper access to Apple’s messaging platform. As of January 21, Beeper said that there were around 30 users who had reported being banned.

No warning was given to users before the ban, and it was thought that the move could have been retaliation against using the controversial messaging app. According to Beeper, Apple alleged that “spam” was the reason for the hardware ban.
