With the latest apps being removed for failing to adhere to Apple's rules, however, a route back onto the store might be available if the developers start following policy. Earlier, Apple had repeatedly rejected the TRAI-DND app from inclusion in the iOS store, which serves the iPhone and iPad, citing privacy concerns.

An Apple spokesperson confirmed the development and further added that the app is now available on App Store starting today.

"Fed up with years of waiting for Apple to implement anti-spam measures for iPhones, India's telecom regulator TRAI threatened in July to ban iPhones from the country's cellular networks".

"Reports have suggested that the average person receives upwards of 10 unwanted calls and messages in a given day, which the app combats by letting users join a "do not disturb" registry and allowing them to report unwanted contacts".

"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".
