How To Fix iOS 10 iCloud Calendar Spam

Here is how you can fix iOS 10 iCloud calendar spam if you have encountered with this issue. During last week a lot of iDevices users have been affected by the iCloud calendar spam. If you began seeing an invitation to an event in your calendar listings for Ugg Boots, Ray-Ban sunglasses, and other products, it’s because spammers took advantage of a long-available feature in iCloud that extracts invites from email and presents them as notifications in calendar apps.


You must think, just hit “Decline” and it will go away. That’s the worst thing you can do. Now the spammers know that this particular address is actually real. So here is the guide that help you to fix this issue.

How To Block iCloud Calendar Spam Invites In iOS 10 Without Alerting Spammers


The most annoying part of this is the notifications that come in. There’s a way to stop in-app notifications for new invites and send them to your email instead. There, thanks to better spam filters, it will get caught. But this also means you won’t get any sort of notifications for any sort of invite.

Step 1: First, open iCloud.com via a desktop browser and login. (Apple doesn’t allow you to use iCloud.com via mobile Safari.)

Step 2: Click on “Calendar“.


Step 3: Click the gear icon in the bottom of the screen and pick “Preferences“ option.

Step 4: Head to the “Advanced” section, scroll down to “Invitations” and select the radio button next to “Email to address@email.com”. Then hit “Save“.


Now spam invitations will appear in your inbox—or, more likely, get automatically marked as spam and never bother you.

A lot of people have been affected by this spam and all of them hope that Apple is acknowledged with this issue and will seed iOS 10 iCloud calendar spam fix in next software update.
