Months after TRAI threat, Apple allows DND app on App Store

The company was warned by TRAI to approve a government-developed Do Not Disturb app, and the deadline was January 2019.

Back in July, Apple faced an impending iPhone ban in India if it did not comply with the region's telecom regulator, TRAI.

According to a new report from Telegraph, more than 700 apps - including Sogou, a Chinese alternative to Google, and Pinduodo, an online retail app - were removed from Apple's App Store for the Chinese market on Tuesday.

The India Today report specifically noted that the app is only available to those using iOS 12.1, which is now running on 63% of iPhones going back to 2014.

The name of the app that has been made available to iPhone users today is TRAI DND - Do Not Disturb.

For those unaware, with the TRAI DND app, iPhone users can register their mobile number for DND (Do Not Disturb), and can also report spam calls and SMS - an issue that nearly every Indian mobile user faces on daily basis.

However, this July, TRAI categorically asked access providers to ensure "within six months' time, that all smartphones registered on its network support the permissions required for the functioning of such Apps". However, we should point out that not all the features of Truecaller that run on its Android version are available for the iOS version. However, the user will be responsible for any loss occurred if they report these Call/SMS. As the name suggests, the app basically attempts to help people avoid unwanted phone calls and messages - something that can be a big problem for some.

You can find a link to the free DND app below. "For received calls that you report, the developer will receive information about the call, such as the caller's number and the time of the call".

For registering the complaints, the app will will auto-create a complaint registration message, which will be send to the telecom service provider.
