Apple apologizes for ruining iCloud calendar

iPhone iCloud Calendar Spam

Some iPhone and Mac users have been experiencing a new annoying issue recently: iCloud calendar spam. What happens is that event invitations start appearing in the Calendar app on iOS and macOS, containing links to fake websites. There are ways to fix the problem, although none of them come officially from Apple, and not all will completely deal with the matter.

Apple’s iPhone call logging is a feature, not a security scare

iPhone Call Data iCloud

A Russian company that makes iPhone-hacking software said earlier this week that Apple quietly collects iPhone call data in iCloud, including both cellular voice calls and FaceTime calls. But it turns out that’s a feature built into iOS and macOS for the user’s “convenience.” So there’s no point freaking out about it. That said, Apple could certainly have done a better job informing the user what happens with call data.

Comment: Customers deserve a proper response after service outages and botched software updates

It’s been a rough couple of days for Apple’s services. Apple Music took a lengthy hit on Wednesday with subscribers being signed out, then a widespread outage hit multiple services including iCloud on Thursday for several hours. All this during a quarter when Apple is selling itself to investors as a services company, not just the iPhone company, but these outages are way too common.

And it’s not just services. Apple had to re-release iOS 9.3.2 for the 9.7-inch iPad Pro, a minor bug fix update that bricked the company’s latest tablet for a lot of customers. Mistakes happen but it’s Apple’s response after everything is resolved that bothers me…
