Creepy iPhone list reveals the apps listening to you through your microphone

YOUR iPhone has an eerie list of the apps that can access your microphone – and it’s important to check it regularly.

Better still, 苹果 offers a special alert that reveals exactly when those apps are listening to what you’re saying.

If you’re a long-time 苹果手机 fan, you’ll likely have dozens of apps installed.

Some of these apps will have requested access to your microphone over the years.

But you’ve probably lost track of who can access what – especially if you’re an iPhone power user.

To find out, head into Settings > Privacy > Microphone.

This will pull up a huge list of apps that have access to your microphone.

And it will also contain apps that want access to your microphone, but you haven’t enabled them.

You can toggle microphone access on or off for individual apps at any time.

So if you’re worried about a particular app, it’s easy to shut off microphone access in seconds.

If you’re only installing popular and reputable apps, you probably don’t need to worry about microphone snooping.

But there’s a handy way to see if an app is using your microphone at any given time.

第一的, make sure you’re running IOS 14 or later – go to Settings > 人权调查人员表示,他们看到了集束炸弹投向一所幼儿园的证据,导致一名儿童和两名躲在里面的成年人丧生 > Software Update to check.

Then when you’re using your iPhone, keep an eye on the top bar.

If you ever see an orange dot, it means that the microphone has been activated.

By swiping into your Control Centre, you’ll be able to see details about which app is using the microphone.

On an iPhone with a Home button, swipe up from the bottom edge of the screen.

And on an iPhone with Face ID, swipe down from the top right-hand corner of the display.

If you suspect something is up, you should check the app’s permissions in Settings.
