Shocking! How Apple iPhones can be secretly used as a spying device
Apple iPhone Live Listen feature allows people to secretly spy on friends, partners and more.
The use of an undiscovered feature on Apple iPhones has left the internet shocked. The Apple iPhones Live Listen feature can be used to literally secretly spy on any private conversation even through walls. This iPhones feature has been recently discovered by a TikTok user Dalilamouhib who shared how one can use iPhone Live Listen feature to sneakily hear what partners and friends are saying from far away.
Sharing the post, the TikToker said in her clip, "You can hear everything, everything through your AirPods." She further told her followers that they can forget/leave their iPhone in a room where people are talking, go to another room and hear what they're talking about in that room behind their backs. It comes in loud and clear through the AirPods. It is totally a secret. She added, "And they don't know about it."
Well! It's true. Apple iPhones can be used as a microphone to secretly listen to the conversations while being in another room via the Live Listen feature. According to the Apple website, this was designed to help users hear a conversation in a noisy area or even hear someone speaking across the room.
Live Listen allows users to turn their iPhones, iPads, or iPods into a microphone that sends conversations to connected AirPods, AirPods Pro, AirPods Max, Powerbeats Pro, or Beats Fit Pro.
How to use iPhones Live Listen feature
To enable this feature, a person needs to slide down to open the control centre and tap on the hearing icon and turn the Live Listen feature on. Once done, the device can be left in a room and everything that is being said can be listened to.
Wait! There is a catch! This feature only works as far as the Bluetooth connection supports.
In case this got you worried and you want to know if the Apple iPhones Live Listen feature was used against you, then here is how to find out. An orange microphone icon is displayed on the top left of the iPhone screen if the Live Listen is on. You can tell that way.
Tom Peet from the Repair Outlet has said that this feature was developed to help those hard of hearing. He said, "Despite the many other obvious ‘uses' it may have, the feature is designed to assist those hard of hearing so that they can place their phone near a noise source and hear it even from far away."
Dalilamouhib's video has been liked by more than 3 million people on TikTok.
