I'm the kind of iOS user who tends to rant and rave when I see just a couple of errant spam messages appear in my iMessages app -- especially when they're a darker variant, which go beyond the missives that so many of us have gotten by now (like the ones announcing that you've won a non-existent Amazon raffle). No, I'm talking about attempted scams, adult-themed messages, and the like, which intrude in a massively annoying way when you're trying to sort through messages from friends and loved ones. I only thought I had it bad, though, until a few weeks ago when I was chatting with someone who works at Facebook, and he held up his phone to show me all of his iMessage spam. All of these, he showed me as he swiped through the list, should not be here.
This problem, by the way, is not limited to iMessages. Users of other iOS apps, like the Calendar app, have been reporting similar frustrations -- such as the users in this Reddit thread, complaining of scammy Calendar spam.
