Truecaller, the world’s leading global communications platform, today launched a brand-new version of their iPhone app for users around the world. iPhone users have been underserved by CallerID and Spam blockers. Consumers have been clamouring for a solution, and Truecaller has built a better mousetrap.
The iOS app has been completely re-written from the ground up to be lighter (smaller app size), more eﬃcient (works faster, even on the older iPhone 6S) but most important of all, it oﬀers 10 times better spam, scam and business call identiﬁcation compared to previous versions of the app.
This change has been brought about by an all-new architecture that can more eﬀectively take advantage of advanced background features in iOS. All-new Truecaller for iPhone has developed the most current, accurate, and complete ﬁrst ring CallerID and spam detection for every geography.by automatically updating spam information in the background.
The app also has a complete design refresh and user experience ﬂow that results in far shorter times for initial onboarding and quicker day-to-day navigation through the app.
“We’ve been innovating within Apple’s platform to bring users more powerful features like Call Alerts, Call Reason, and a convenient search extension,” said Alan Mamedi, Co-founder and CEO of Truecaller. “This update has been a long time coming for many iPhone users, and now we can oﬀer them the best performing identiﬁer of spam and scam to help them separate the noise from the communication they want to respond to.”

10x better Caller ID, 10x better protection against spam and scam Smoother and faster onboarding for new users
