Apple's technology giant will eliminate sticker packages from its App Store and limit the growth of new “packages,” ensuring that the vast majority of applications violate their policies. Some applications have already been deleted.
According to the portal leak WaBetaInfo, in his Twitter account, Apple's decision to eliminate packages is based on violation of the rules for storing applications.
The newly added WhatsApp feature allows users to use image packages to communicate with their contacts. In addition to the default values in the application owned by Facebook, if users want to expand their label catalog, they should switch to third-party development.
Stickers work differently as they work in applications such as Telegram. In the case of an application created by Russians, when downloading packages of stickers, they are loaded directly into Telegram. In WhatsApp, you need to install and have as many sticker applications on your cell phone as there are certain packages.
As @WABetaInfo showed, Apple argued that it would eliminate folder packages, because “there are many applications with similar behavior, which requires WhatsApp to be installed (when applications published to the App Store must work without requiring others to install) , and the design of the application was the same.
Apple reports that all WhatsApp stickers violate their recommendations. Main reasons:
1) Too many applications with similar behavior.
2) Requires WA installation. Applications do not need other applications.
3) The design of these applications is the same. https://t.co/L86KCYeSBV

Rules that follow Apple’s Apple App Store verification guidelines prohibit copying “a recent popular app on the App Store” or “making minor changes to the name or user interface of another app and creating it as your own. "
On this issue, the leak portal also created a stream of conversations on Twitter, where he assured that “Apple will reject or exclude its App Store shortcut if it uses the user interface template provided by WhatsApp”, a message to developers,
On the other hand, some netizens were tormented before the decision. “We changed the design and improved the functionality; Apple still continues to reject and ignore our attractiveness,” said the user adding video using special interface stickers.
we have already changed the layout and improved the functionality; Apple is still abandoning us and ignoring our appeal. Please help us as our community continues to grow and users don’t want updates (you can read the comment from the App Store). pic.twitter.com/LoP5libmPd

It is FREE and NECESSARY. For some people, it is so difficult to create an application with a sample that I have provided; imagine that you need to create an application that is completely different from this example. What's the point?
