    Perhaps it’s just a coincidence, but every since I updated to iOS 12 I’ve been increasingly inundated with email advertisements. Where in the past I might get 1-2 a day, now I’m getting 30-40 and it seems to be getting progressively worse.

    Are others experiencing this and is there any way to at least slow this nuisance down?

    Apple doesn’t share your email address with anyone so I don’t think it has anything to do with iOS 12. Your best bet is to unsubscribe from those types of emails as you receive them or mark them as spam.

    I'm not experiencing this. Might you have done something else around that same time that could explain this?

    Where are you seeing these email advertisements?

    Apple does not share your email with anyone nor puts ads in their apps.

    So, this has nothing to do with the iOS 12 update. You might want to check if you had subscribed to services recently where you had to give your email address.

    No. It’s more than likely a coincidence.

    It sounds like someone either hacked, gave or sold my email address. I guess it’s a sign of the times.
    Thanks for the replies.

    If you have a Microsoft email (live, hotmail, outlook, etc) there was an issue recently with their spam filter where many of the messages were making it through. It was a crazy amount, too. Like one every 30 minutes. It’s working fine again.
