Apple has unveiled a new system for iOS and OS X users to report iMessage spam.

The Cupertino-based company has added a guide to dealing with unwanted iMessages on its support page, which includes the steps for iOS and OS X users should take when reporting spam.

Apple suggests sending an email with the following details to: imessage.spam@icloud.com.

  1. Include a screenshot of the message you have received.
  2. Include the full email address or phone number you received the unwanted message from.
  3. Include the date and time that you received the message.

The new system will only deal with spam received via iMessages. Apple instructs those who receive unwanted SMS or MMS messages to report them to their service provider.
