Starting in version 22.5.1 of the Tumblr app for iOS:
- There is no longer an option to tap through the overlay to view a blog that's been flagged as explicit.
- Likes and reblogs from explicit flagged blogs are hidden from the notes.
- Search and tag results for certain words and phrases* will be obscured by an overlay and cannot be viewed in the app.
- Images received via direct messaging from blogs you don't follow cannot be viewed in the app.
- Images from reblogs shown in posts' notes are blurred unless you follow the Tumblr that added the image.
- Your dashboard (the "Following" tab and the "Stuff for you" tab), search results, and tag results no longer show content that contains certain words or phrases.
- Certain words and phrases have been removed from the typeahead feature in search (sometimes referred to as search suggestions).
- We've excluded blogs that may contain or create sensitive content from search and tag results.
*The list of words and phrases that are filtered out is not public at this time.
Apple has asked that we make some changes to how we handle certain kinds of content (referred to as "objectionable content" in their App Store guidelines) in our iOS app. We implemented the aforementioned changes to bring us in line with Apple's App Store guidelines.
We know that these changes are not ideal and that many of you will find them frustrating. For that, we are sorry. The good news is that these changes are temporary. We're focusing on both policy and engineering solutions to satisfy Apple's requirements in a way that works for our community in the new year. Follow our Changes blog for future updates.
