Apple now provides a new facility to its iMessage users. They can now report Apple directly about spam messages. According to MacRumors
, a new support document
for iMessage spam reporting is now available at Apple website. The procedure to report Apple about unwanted messages sent from iMessage requires an email to be sent at email@example.com. This email should include necessary information including the screen shot of spam or unwanted message, complete email address or phone number of the sender, receiving time and date of the message.
Apple has released this new iMessage spam reporting tool because an iOS developers group in March received a series of spam messages sent via iMessage and it was not possible then to report or block spam attack. But now iMessage users can directly report Apple about spam. iOS 7 users are also provided with facility to block contacts in the Messages, Phone and FaceTime apps. Unfortunately, users of previous iOS versions cannot use this blocking feature.
