On May 25th, Apple quietly released the iOS 12.3.1 system. The new system did not have any new features to join, mainly to fix some bugs in iMessage.

Apple released iOS 12.3.1

Two main points updated in the iOS 12.3.1 :

1. Fixed "Information", even if "Filter unknown senders" is enabled, information from unknown senders may still appear in the conversation list;


2. Fixed an issue in "Information" that may cause the "Report Spam" link not to be displayed on the information conversation page from an unknown sender;


Prior to this, more and more domestic iPhone users spoke out that they frequently received a lot of spam, and this spam easily bypassed the interception of spam blocking software, making it hard to prevent, you want to solve only simple and rude Close iMessage.


The reason why the above problems occur, mainly because these spam messages are sent through the iMessage group. This function is provided by the multiple users that Apple provides to users for instant communication. After being used by a third party, you can receive a lot of spam messages. As a result, the function of third-party software to block spam messages is invalid (cannot be detected and intercepted), and the reporting function provided by Apple also fails in the group iMessage message.


Before the update is released, the user wants to solve the above problem. What can be done is to completely close the iMessage message (close the method: iOS settings---information---iMessage message---close), let the message pass the other Means to carry out.


Whether Apple can cure the iMessage spam push problem remains to be seen, but since this information is not a text message but is sent via traffic, similar to the mail (your personal information has already been sold in the black market), so you want to thoroughly Solve, a high probability is impossible (Apple does not see such information in order to protect the privacy of users, so it is difficult to solve the problem from the source).


As for Android users, the problem of the above iPhone users is rarely encountered or not encountered at all. Because the SMS sends similar information, the three major operators in China can set up the spam blocking system with similar illegal information. , will be directly blocked by the system and can not be delivered to the user.
