A ‘warning’ has appeared on the top of your iPhone since the iOS 14 software upgrade. But what exactly does that mean? It is important to know this in the event that your phone is misused. It is basically there to let you know when an application is using your microphone or camera.
In addition to the orange icon appearing on the screen, users will also be able to get private information on the App Store to further help understand the privacy practices about the entire application before downloading it. In a statement regarding the orange icon and the iOS 14 update, Apple said: “An indicator appears at the top of your screen whenever an application uses your microphone or camera. And in the Control Center, you can see if an application has used them recently. ”
Apple users will be able to check app permissions within the Settings section, and they can write access to apps to your microphone or camera – or they have the option to turn off the app altogether.
“Confidentiality is the fundamental human right and the basis of everything we do. That’s why with iOS 14, we give you more control over shared data and more information on how to use it, ”Apple added.
