"A technical expert said new iOS feature can help iPhone user to filter or block spam messages and block calls but not the option to file complaint with the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) against the spammers", the report further added.
Apple has been fighting the India government over approving an iOS app to block spam calls and texts in the region for some time now. It works by sucking in a user's call and text logs, and lets them report any numbers which send unsolicited spam and marketing messages directly to the regulator. The statements were made in an attempt to make Apple budge on its strict privacy-focused stance, and allow the regulator untethered access to call logs and details as well as text messages on iOS devices.
The Android version has been available for download since a year ago but Apple hasn't allowed the iOS counterpart on the App Store due to privacy concerns. Apple has been refusing Trai's request of working together to develop an anti-spam application for the iOS platform.
The Indian government launched an anti-spam app called Do Not Disturb back in 2016.
"They (Apple) will help develop an app which, to an extent, can solve the requirements", said the official. The app has over 100,000 downloads on the Play Store, but a 2.5 rating.
"The app can peep into logs, Apple had conveyed that their (privacy) policy does not allow this", said the industry source familiar with the matter. Recently, it was said that Apple has approached Trai to include the application in the Apple App Store, which the company initially refused to include.
Apple has flown in several overseas-based executives to resolve the dispute with the Indian regulator, including its senior director for global privacy, and former Google executive, Jane Horvath.
Earlier Trai had openly rebuked Apple for non-cooperation over the DND app and it remains to be seen how it reacts to Apple's latest offer.
In August this year, months after the talks began, Apple wrote to TRAI saying that a technical meeting would help them establish "what is possible and not possible". "They've had meetings, meetings and meetings".
