Apple also added that it take legal action on this issue. Apple said, “TRAI cannot take any action which is not in their ambit like barring handsets from their network.”
As per analysts favouring Apple’s case, “The implementation of the regulation by operators is invalid from the outset, purely from practical enforceability itself.”
Apple said that it has already told the regulator about changes in its latest software upgrade iOS 12, to be launched in September, which has features that allow blocking of unwanted calls and messages on iPhones.
In iOS12, when a user receives an SMS or MMS message from an unknown sender, the Messages app will ask the user’s Message Filter app extension to determine whether the message is unsolicited or otherwise unwanted.
