A new knowledge base document that has appeared on Apple’s support site introduces a new iMessage spam reporting tool that allows users to report spam, or unwanted iMessages to Apple…
How to report iMessage as Spam on iPhone, or iPad
If there’s someone on iMessage who won’t leave you alone, or you’re a victim of annoying business spam via iMessage, you can get rid of such annoyance by taking a screenshot of the spam message(s) and emailing it to the following Apple’s spam handle: email@example.com. The email should also include the sender’s e-mail address or phone number, as well as the date and time that you received the message, with the screenshot.
Here are the official steps on reporting iMessage spam to Apple, found in the official knowledge base document:
To report unwanted iMessage messages to Apple, please send an email with the following details to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Include a screenshot of the message you have received.
Include the full email address or phone number you received the unwanted message from.
Include the date and time that you received the message.
Note: You can only report iMessages to Apple. Apple cannot handle your SMS/MMS spam messages, that can only be reported to your carrier.
In iOS 7, Apple added a new call blocking feature for iPhone but only iOS 7 or later users can enjoy this feature. However, iMessage reporting feature is independent of any device of iOS version. Apple introduced iMessage as a core feature in iOS 5 back in 2011.
