Apple Approves India's 'Do Not Disturb' App, Avoids iPhone Ban

Apple has finally started implementing the anti-spam measures for iPhones in India after getting a warning from TRAI. This means iPad and iPhone users in India will now be able to user Trai's Do Not Disturb app on their respective devices. "Innovative apps like Fabulous, Shine, 10% Happier and Headspace expanded the practice of wellness around the world to make self-care more accessible than ever before", Apple said in a statement.

If you have an iPhone in India, you can now download the TRAI DND app directly from the App Store. But Apple can not afford to overlook the market, even if it means low hardware sales for the company.

"Trai DND App will not block any SMS/Calls from authentic businesses/entities that you have subscribed too, eg, bank, food delivery apps, travel/taxi apps etc".

Frank Warren and BBBC to lodge complaint over Wilder v Fury scorecards
Actor Michael Rappoport agreed with Berto agreed on some level, but wants to "see more from" Deontay Wilder going forward. Tyson Fury says a "holy hand" brought him back from the 12th round knockdown. "The world knows I won the fight".

Of course, Apple now uses Face ID for its newer iPhones and the latest iPad Pro, but users of MacBooks and older iPhones and iPads are still susceptible to Touch ID shenanigans - and Face ID is arguably even more suited to this modern con. This will allow you to actively report spam callers. The fraud scheme, which Google calls 'install attribution abuse', involves a developer claiming a share of the revenue generated by app downloads despite playing no role in guiding users to install the app. Sometimes you can use Touch ID to lock an app as well.

With iOS, Apple tends to avoid letting an app have access into the inner layers of the operating system, but there are more ways than programming code hacks to fraudulently separate a user from their money. It's a restriction that Apple has been enforcing for over a year, so it's unlikely the developers didn't know about it.

Kika Tech also brushed off the allegations and said it found no evidence of click fraud in its apps. To recollect, both Apple and Trai faced numerous struggles to come to a mutual agreement for the inclusion of the TRAI DND app in the App store. In the "Phone" option, select "SMS/Call Reporting", then "DND" and tap on "Enable".

Flutter can allow Capital One to think of features not in an "iOS or Android-first" fashion, but rather in a true mobile-first model. This information includes the time of the call and the actual phone number.

This can be done with spam SMS as well, through a "report message" option just below an SMS from any sender that is not in your contact list. TRAI had apparently given Apple a deadline of January 2019. Fortnite, Helix Jump and Rise Up were the top games of the year on the App Store, followed closely by PUBG Mobile, which won the best game of the year on Android.
