If there's one thing Apple's App Store is well-known for then it's how strict and vigilant the company can be before hosting an app.

It has been a long time we have been waiting for this, but Apple has finally allowed the TRAI DND app to be released onto Apple's App Store. Threatened by the Indian telecom regulator's upcoming ban on their devices in India, Apple has now been forced to host the DND app on its App Store. Along with helping users to report unwanted calls or messages to their service providers, the app will help in identifying the unregistered telemarketing callers.

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) approves the Do Not Disturb app in India to avoid an iPhone ban. It requires iOS 12.1 or later. It's a restriction that Apple has been enforcing for over a year, so it's unlikely the developers didn't know about it. Back in 2016 Google allowed the app in its Play Store. Apple named Froggipedia, a digital frog dissection app with augmented reality capabilities, the top iPad app of the year; image editor Pixelmator Pro the top Mac App; and workout app Sweat the top Apple TV app. They include Apple's editorial selections and apps that topped App Store charts.

The app contains two parts, first is the registration of the mobile number and second is reporting the spam calls and SMS after the registration.

If you are reporting a text message, the app will also get the contents of that text message. Currently, it is unclear that the version of DND that is released in the App Store follows the additional privacy protection or not.

Once you download an app while it is in the offer, you won't be charged anything when you download it later and can use the app forever for free.
