Discord Bans NSFW Server Access for iOS Users

Apple users banned from accessing NSFW Discord servers from their devices

Discord, a group chat service that can also be used for Skype-style one-on-one cam shows, has announced some worrying changes to its NSFW servers. In addition to declaring that any servers where the vast majority of users are 18+ may be marked as NSFW at Discord’s sole discretion, regardless of the actual content of the server, Discord also announced that NSFW servers will not be accessible to iOS users. Only owners and moderators of NSFW servers will be able to access them on iOS devices – all other users, regardless of age, will be unable to join or access NSFW servers if they are using iOS. Although Discord did not specify any direct Apple involvement in its decision to suspend iOS access to NSFW servers, it is unlikely that Discord made this choice without some type of pressure from Apple regarding access to the App Store. Discord is also said to be in talks with Microsoft regarding a sale that industry analysts estimate at around $10 billion.
