iPhone - Messages App
Now a days we started getting spam messages and calls from different vendors, people, organisations, companies and fraudsters whether they are authorised to do it or not.
In iOS, we don't have an option to block an SMS coming from Companies and Advertisers. For example you cannot block SMS from senders like AD-Amazon or VK-HDFCBK.
From iOS 11, Apple has added the option to Show or Hide alerts for any SMS but don't have an option to block it completely.
1. User should have control to see what information they want to see, hide and completely ignore.
2. Unnecessary or SPAM SMS can sometimes irritate users and may lead to frustration and bad experience.
If Apple can provide "Mark as Spam" option and block options for such SMS it will be helpful for the individuals to stay away from such promotional or fraudsters SMS. This is a very basic option which should have to a iPhone owner. By marking an SMS as "Spam" it will be list separately and will not bother the users next time as it will always go to the Spam folder.
This will be the similar experience like any email provider offers. i.e. Junk/Spam folders in email. Checkout suggested design for Mark as Spam feature below.
