Calendar Invite Spam on Apple Devices

Some Apple users have recently been receiving spam as calendar invites, with spam and ads appearing as events in their iCloud calendars.  This is occurring because Apple pulls calendar information from email and automatically puts it into your calendar. To prevent this from happening, you must disable this feature in your iCloud account.

  4. Select the Advanced tab.
  5. Scroll down to the Invitations heading and select the option to email to your iCloud email.
