I never thought I would say this but I am starting to hate this company. In the past year I have an attack from Apple on my iCloud.

First I had the basic plan, then they bothered me everyday to upgrade, I did. Now, I exceeded the amount of space , and this is what happens:

  1. Every morning, my Mac starts with a message to upgrade the iCloud, and force me to go into a window to do so or manage my space. Leave my mac alone !

  2. I get 2 emails a week from iCloud to upgrade, without subscription option.

  3. I get messages on my iPhone to upgrade once a week.

  4. I get message on my iPad twice a week to upgrade.

How do I cancel these messages?

Is it legal to garbage me everyday with these messages?

To answer both of your questions:

How do I cancel this attack?


Is it legal to garbage me everyday with these messages?

It's not an "attack" and it's perfectly legal since you agreed to it.

Apple is fully within their rights to send you communications letting you know (generally speaking) the status of your account.

When you completed the service activation for your iCloud account, you electronically agreed to the Terms and Conditions (you know that "legal" box nobody reads and just reflexively says "yes" to just so they can continue on with the installation?) you gave Apple the legal authority to contact you about your service if/when you exceed your storage limit; which you did.

From the iCloud Terms and Conditions page

We may contact you via email regarding your account, for reasons including, without limitation, reaching or exceeding your storage limit.

(emphasis mine)

Right there, it says that if Apple wanted to send you an email every minute of every day, they could and would be legally indemnified from doing so because you agreed to this condition.

Your options

  • Deactive your iCloud Account
  • Buy more storage
  • Delete some files

Short of that advice, there's no circumventing this.
