1. Open your Calendar app and click 鈥淐alendars鈥 at the bottom of your screen.

2. Hit 鈥淓dit鈥 then 鈥淎dd Calendars.鈥

3. Basically what you need to do is create a 鈥渟pam鈥 calendar where you can throw all of these sketchy invites. So just type in 鈥渟pam鈥 or 鈥渏unk鈥 or 鈥済et out of my life, spammers!鈥 鈥 whatever will make you remember that this is where those invites need to go.

4. Now every time you get a spam invitation, move it to this calendar.

5. Once all your spam invites are moved over, go back to your main Calendars page and once again hit 鈥淐alendars.鈥 Now tap the 鈥渋鈥 next to your spam calendar, scroll down to 鈥渄elete calendar鈥 and bada bing bada boom, spam invites are out of your life. Now you can get back to your actual, real meetings and events.
