iCloud Calendar Spam – What You Should Do?

People using iCloud may get stuck with bogus invitations.

Essentially what happens in these instances is an iCloud user will receive a request for either a Calendar event or to view/share an iCloud Photo Sharing album or image. The issue with this type of spam is that, even if the user hits “Decline,” it informs the spammer that the account is active and thus encourages them to continue sending the spam.

So what to do ?

Apple says you should:

  1. Open the Calendar app
  2. Tap a spam event
  3. Look for the “Unsubscribe from this Calendar” button at the bottom

Doing this will automatically remove all other spam events from that specific calendar from your iPhone. You’ll need to repeat the process, however, if you’ve managed to subscribe to multiple spam calendars. This process is significantly easier than it used to be, indicating that Apple is aware of the problem and working to make changes.
