Back in July, Apple faced an impending iPhone ban in India if it did not comply with the region's telecom regulator, TRAI. However, this has now been resolved, and the TRAI DND app is now available to download on Apple's App Store for iPhones.
It isn't clear whether the approved version appearing in the App Store today has additional privacy features.
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.

According to reports, Indians receive more than 10 spam calls and messages on a daily basis.
Once this is done, you can now directly report spam calls through your phone app on the Apple iPhone. The way the app works is users can manually select unwanted calls or messages they receive and using the built-in SMS/Call Reporting Framework built into iOS, DND automatically generates a complaint text message and sends it to the appropriate carrier for further action. However, Apple did not permit the app on its platform citing privacy issues.
"Registration of mobile number under DND will take up to 7 days after putting the request with the respective telecom service provider (TSP)", the App Store description said.
"Trai DND App will not block any SMS/Calls from authentic businesses/entities that you have subscribed too, e.g. your bank, food delivery apps, travel/taxi apps etc". Now Android users didn't have to worry as Google had already allowed the app on its Play Store. The Cupertino giant, however, has to keep a tight vigil on its online marketplace as China also happens to be the place where a lot of security is needed when it comes to these online app stores.
