Truecaller Launches Vastly Improved iOS App
Apple And Truecaller Launch Live Caller ID For iPhone Users

“Truecaller on iOS has always been a challenge because of the specific platform restrictions and differences from Android, ” said Alan Mamedi, Co-founder and CEO of Truecaller. “Over the years, we’ve been working hard to bring powerful features like Call Alerts, a dedicated widget and search extension to iOS but the live caller ID always eluded us – till now!



We’ve been working closely with Apple and we realised the only way to solve this problem for our iOS users was to throw out all the old code and completely rewrite the app. A lot of iOS users have been waiting for this update for a long time and I’m excited to finally be able to say that we have built the best performing spam/scam blocking for iOS. ”



Highlights of the new iOS app:


  • 10x better Caller ID, 10x better protection against spam and scam  Smoother and faster onboarding for new users
  • Enhanced detail view when you search for numbers
  • New Premium purchase flow with easier feature comparisons
  • Redesigned search extension (from Phone > Recents > Share Contact)


Updates coming soon:


  • More precise SMS filtering that works completely offline (If enabled, Truecaller can also auto-categorize all finance SMS, promotions, online orders and travel updates)
  • Automatic blocking of top spammers
  • Detailed statistics on spam marked numbers
  • See and view comments on spam marked numbers for additional context  Redesigned widget for even faster number search
