Apple introduces ‘report junk’ option to deal with iCloud calendar spam

New, 9 comments

In recent weeks, Apple users have reported an increase in the amount of spam invites they’ve been receiving in their iCloud calendars. Spammers have been inserting invites into users’ schedules, with the title usually advertising some unwanted sale or product. Apple has promised it’s working on a fix, and the company’s first step is apparently introducing a new “report junk” option in the iCloud calendar web app.

According to 9to5Mac, this option now appears under the “from” field in calendar invites sent by strangers. When you report an invite it will be deleted across all synced calendars, but, at the moment, you’ll have to visit the iCloud calendar web app in your browser to do so. The “report junk” feature doesn’t yet seem to be available in Apple’s mobile apps, but we can expect it to show up shortly via a future software update. In the meantime, there are a few other ways you can deal with iCloud calendar spam.
