This has been discussed & was mentioned during the keynote at WWDC.

Glad you found it though.

Yes, it's there and no one talks about it, but I think it's because not everyone wants to block phone numbers, unless you have stalkers or collections, but it's nice to have the option thought.

It's been talked about plenty, and it's certainly no secret.

Other than some people in attendance were thinking about other things by that point.

I ws very happy to see this feature mentioned at the WWDC keynote. It was something I've requested and it's now a reality.

One feature I haven't see anyone talk about is Do Not Disturb. Have they updated it to allow texts to come through for allowed contacts?

The only noticeable update for Do Not Disturb is that you can now have it working when the phone is unlocked as well (or have it like before, only when the phone is locked).
