It seems Apple has finally toed to the order of Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) regulations to implement Do Not Disturb (DND) application after resenting it for quite some time.
Areport byBusiness Standardsays that the Cupertino-based giant is readying a new DND app for its iOS platform that will comply with TRAI’s latest set of regulation. The report further highlights that Apple might roll out the new application around Diwali.
The whole issue came into limelight when Apple refused to add TRAI’s DND app to its App Store citing that it breaches company’s policy of handling information to third-party applications. However, TRAI, in its latest regulation had said to telecom operators notto recognize devices from handset players ( by blocking network connectivity) which do not have DND app.
If Apple can implement the DND application on its platform in the stipulated time, it will avoid the possibility of a complete ban ( loss of voice and data connectivity by service providers) on all the iPhones and iPad that are being used in India.
