Apple Activates Calendar Spam Reporting Feature


Apple on Sunday instituted a new junk content reporting feature on its web portal, the first step in what appears to be an activation of countermeasures against iCloud Calendar spam invites users began to receive in volume last month.

A good first step, but the iCloud web interface is surely the least used client for iCloud calendaring. That said, after that burst of calendar spam around Thanksgiving, I haven’t seen any in the last week or two. So I’m hoping they now have some server-side filters that are keeping it from even appearing.
