If you’re concerned that your iPhone might be recording you without your knowledge, you can easily check. According to Lifehacker, your iPhone automatically tells you when the phone or microphone is active—you just have to know where to look.
When your phone is taking a video recording, a green dot will appear in the top-right corner of the screen. This dot will be visible even if you’re using another app, so you’ll know when your phone is recording you. For audio recordings, an orange dot will be visible in the same place.
It’s important to note that this only applies to the iPhone’s built-in camera and microphone. If you’re using an external camera or microphone, the dots won’t appear. Additionally, the dots won’t appear if you’re using a third-party app that has access to your camera or microphone.
If you’re worried about your privacy, it’s a good idea to check the dots regularly. You can also go into your phone’s settings and check which apps have access to your camera and microphone. If you see any apps that you don’t recognize or don’t use, you can revoke their access.
In conclusion, it’s easy to check if your iPhone is recording you. Just look for the green or orange dot in the top-right corner of the screen. If you’re using an external camera or microphone, or a third-party app, the dots won’t appear. It’s also a good idea to check your phone’s settings to make sure that only the apps you trust have access to your camera and microphone.
