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

Apple removes over 700 apps from Chinese App Store

The DND app can now be downloaded from the Apple App Store on iOS and while it's unclear if TRAI has revised its privacy policies on the app for the iOS release, Apple seems to be convinced with the government's proposition.

It was not clear if the current version of "TRAI DND-Do Not Disturb" app released in the Apple App Store implements additional privacy protections beyond what was originally devised by the TRAI.

The telecom regulator had reportedly threatened to ban iPhones if Apple did not approve the app by January 2019. As a result, iPhones faced a risk of getting banned in the country as TRAI had ordered the telecom operators of India to de-recognize devices (disallow voice calls and SMS) that don't allow installation of the TRAI DND app.

Pokémon GO Will Feature Three Battle Leagues
After years of waiting, trainers will soon be able to put their Pokemon to the test in player vs. player battles in Pokemon Go . In truth, Niantic has shared no details about how trainer battles will work or when they'll actually be added to the game.


The Cupertino-based iPhone maker Apple has finally relented and has begun hosting the Indian telecom regulator's Do-Not-Disturb app, at the centre of a dispute between the two over privacy concerns.

The new DND feature on iOS is not limited to India and is available for users across the globe. However, the user will be responsible for any loss occurred if they report these Call/SMS.

It's possible that you already have your number on the National Do Not Call registry maintained by TRAI, but if you don't then this will be your first step.
