Apple’s iMessage service has been a huge hit with iOS users with over 300 billion messages sent from millions of iPhones and iPads. Apple initially created iMessage as a feature of iOS 5 back in June, 2011 to get around the costly SMS and MMS fees carriers were charging mobile subscribers. With iMessages’s success has also come an increase in unwanted ‘Spam’ messages delivered to iOS devices.
Apple now has a plan to help combat some of this unwanted Spam by allowing users to report unsolicited messages directly back to Apple. The company has outlined a three step reporting process in a new support document posted earlier today.
