Delete spammy Calendar Events on Apple iOS devices (iPhone/iPad) and Mac

Contrary to the traditional perspective, spam isn’t an email-only phenomenon. It has become a multi-pronged vector of cybercrime over time and can additionally manifest itself through compromised applications, as is the case with the iPhone Calendar virus.

Frauds are nothing new on the Apple arena. No wonder – fooling humans is easier than manipulating the thoroughly secured operating system.
