Apple's New iOS 14 update Confirms Apps Are Watching You

Our phones are always listening but now, thanks to iOS 14, we now know our phones are watching us too.

Apple's latest iPhone software update features a new ‘warning dot’ that enables users to see whether one of their apps is watching or listening in.

The new update displays a small orange dot at the top corner of the iPhone's display to let users know their microphone is activated.  

The small but noticeable dot appears just above the signal bars and next to the battery indicator. 

It switches to dark green when the camera is activated too, telling iPhone users that apps are 'watching'. 

See the light? How to stop it!

iPhone users can go to Settings and Privacy to switch off any of their apps' access to microphone and camera.
