You might get a text on your iPhone that you definitely don’t want to open.

The message says your Apple ID or iCloud account needs to be updated, according to nbcbayarea.com.

It's just an attempt to gain access to your personal information.

According to the Independent the scam is a phishing attack, designed to get users to hand over information which could be used by cyber criminals.
