After updating your iPhone with iOS 14, have you noticed the little green or orange dots often appear in the upper right corner of your phone’s screen?
Users who are concerned about privacy need to take note.
iOS 14 has added this feature to let you know exactly which apps are using your phone’s microphone or camera.
If an orange dot appears in the upper right corner of your screen, it means an app is using your microphone and may be listening to and/or recording your voice. Apps that are typically accessed using the microphone include Siri, voice-to-text apps, and voice notes. FaceTime and other video calling apps often use both camera and microphone access.
Ambiguous privacy conditions have always been a concern for tiny users. This is a good thing for sharing.
