Are you receiving unwanted messages on your iPhone? If so, you’re not alone. Spam and unwanted messages are one of the most common issues for users of Apple’s popular smartphone. Fortunately, it’s easy to stop these messages from reaching your device. In this blog post, we’ll show you how to report and block messages on your iPhone in just a few simple steps.

The first step is to open the Messages app. Once you’ve opened the app, touch and hold the conversation you want to report. You will then see a pop-up menu with options such as delete and more. Select “report spam” from within the menu.

After selecting “report spam,” you will be prompted to confirm your decision. Tap “OK” to proceed with reporting the message as spam or “cancel” if you have changed your mind and do not want to report it.

If you decide to go ahead with reporting the message, it will be sent to Apple for review along with additional information about the sender and the message itself. The message will then be deleted from your device so that it no longer appears in your inbox or other messaging areas of your iPhone.

In addition to reporting a message as spam, you also have the option of blocking its sender from being able to contact you again in the future. To do this, open Settings on your iPhone and scroll down until you find Messages. Tap Messages and then select “Filter Unknown Messages” which is located near the bottom of the screen under Message Filtering Options. Then toggle on “Filter Unknown Senders” which will block any further messages from senders that are not already in your contacts list or blocked list.

By following these steps, you can easily report and block unwanted messages that are sent to your iPhone quickly and efficiently – ensuring that they don’t become an ongoing issue for yourself or other users who may be using Apple products!

Reporting a Text Message

When you report a text message, it will be moved to the Spam & Blocked folder in Messages. This helps protect you from potentially malicious or spam messages.
