News: TiTok US Ban Timeline / Latest Updates

This TikTok US Ban summary and timeline was prepared by Joshua Lowcock, drawing on public information. This includes updates from the weekend of September 19th and 20th, where the Whitehouse gave preliminary approval of a proposed TikTok deal.


And not to forget WeChat, which was also subject to an AppStore ban. WeChat won a preliminary injunction and will not be banned from the AppStore this Sunday (9/20)


As you may recall, a ruling was expected on the TikTok ban before the deadline at 11:59pm US ET on Sunday the 27th of September.

The judge ruled in TikTok’s favor. This means that TikTok will still be available in the app store.
