Apple implements Do Not Disturb app on iPhone, after TRAIs warning

App Store

The name of the app that has been made available to iPhone users today is TRAI DND - Do Not Disturb. Earlier, Apple had repeatedly rejected the TRAI-DND app from inclusion in the iOS store, which serves the iPhone and iPad, citing privacy concerns.

Back in July, we told you told that Apple's iPhones faced a risk of getting banned in India if the Cupertino-based tech giant didn't allow Indian government's TRAI DND app on its App Store.

Apple reportedly removed 718 apps from the Chinese App Store in the last few days.

"Every Access Provider shall ensure, within six months' time, that all smartphone devices registered on its network support the permissions required for the functioning of such Apps as prescribed in the regulations 6 (2)(e) and regulations 23 (2)(d)", TRAI noted.

More people living with HIV are now receiving treatment that is allowing them to live longer, healthier lives. And around 5 million people are living with both HIV and viral hepatitis, with most of these people unaware.

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. For reported calls, the TRAI will receive information such as caller's number and time of the call, and all the contents of the SMS for reported SMS. Truecaller, an app similar to DND has limited functionality on iOS. By July 2018 Sharma warned wireless carriers that if Apple's iPhone didn't provide India's anti-spam app as requested that they could be called upon to delist and deregister the iPhone from their networks.

Apple is now hosting the app- "TRAI DND-Do Not Disturb"- as long as it does not compromise Apple's privacy norms and also meets Trai's objectives. You will see the option to "Report Message" or "Report all Messages" at the bottom when viewing SMS from numbers not already in your Contacts. In order to install the app, your device should be running the latest version of iOS 12.1.

In the third step, the user will be shown how the app can be used for reporting spam.
