Finally Truecaller rolls out Spam protection for iphone

Apple has launched its new smartphone the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus yesterday, while the iOS 10 will be available for download on September 13.

The new software is also bringing sweet goodies for software engineers with the opening up of Siri and iMessages, giving rise to hoards of opportunities for developers. There is also another lesser-known but very important addition called the CallKit Extension.

Truecaller is launching its integration of the new CallKit Extension for iOS 10 which will improve Spam identification on iPhone.With the new integration Truecaller will automatically identify and display whether a call has been reported as spam or is from a reputable business. This saves users the trouble of manually searching for numbers of unknown calls after they are left unanswered.

In addition to the improved spam detection, Truecaller is also adding a new “My Block List” feature which will let you control exactly who can and cannot contact the user. This update is expected to arrive soon, and will work only with devices running on iOS 10.

iPhone users will have to also manually enable Call Blocking and Identification in the Settings app by heading to Settings > Phone > Call Blocking and Identification to turn on the feature.
