According to experts, WhatsApp violates App Store guidelines by limiting functionality for users who do not agree to the new privacy agreement.
Apple has not yet taken action on the issue
If the user continues to refuse to accept, he will eventually lose access to calls and will no longer receive notifications, making the app practically unusable. Therefore, these actions of WhatsApp are not allowed under the App Store guidelines (App Store guideline: 3.2.2 vi). This may result in the app being removed from the App Store or developer accounts being terminated according to Apple’s policies.
