Apple has reportedly approached the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) for “more consultation” on the inclusion of its Do Not Disturb (DND) application in the App Store. The Cupertino-based giant earlier refused to include regulator’s new anti-spam app on its app store.
According to a report by The Financial Express, citing some sources close to the development, Apple has sought time from the regulator for a meeting on this issue, however, the regulator has not responded to the request. Further, the report highlights that meeting could take place next month.
