The utilization of a previously undisclosed capability in Apple iPhones has astonished the internet. The Apple iPhone’s Live Listen capability may be used to secretly listen in on any private conversation, even through walls. Dalilamouhib, a TikTok user, just discovered iPhone Live Listen and revealed how to utilize it to listen in on what partners and friends are saying from afar.
When she published the video, the TikToker added, “You can hear anything, everything through your AirPods.” She also advised her followers that if they forget or leave their iPhone in a room where people are speaking, they may be able to listen in on what they’re saying behind their backs in another room. It comes in loud and clear through the AirPods. It’s entirely concealed. “And they’re utterly oblivious to it,” she continued.
Well! Yes, you are accurate. Apple iPhones’ Live Listen feature can be used as a microphone to listen in on conversations while in another room. According to the Apple website, this was created to let customers hear a conversation in a noisy environment or even hear someone speaking across the room.
Users may use Live Listen to turn their iPhones, iPads, and iPods into microphones that transmit conversations to paired AirPods, AirPods Pro, AirPods Max, Powerbeats Pro, and Beats Fit Pro.
To use this feature, go to the control center and slide down to the hearing symbol, then select Live Listen from the menu. Following that, you can leave the gadget in a room and listen to anything that is spoken.
Wait! There’s a snag, though! This capacity is restricted by the Bluetooth connection’s range.
Here’s how to find out if your iPhone’s Live Listen feature was used against you if you’re worried about it. An orange microphone icon shows in the top left corner of the iPhone screen if Live Listen is activated. That’s how you’ll be able to tell.
According to Tom Peet of the Repair Outlet, this feature was developed to help people who are hard of hearing. “Despite the many other obvious ‘uses,’ the feature is designed to let those who are hard of hearing position their phone near a noise source and hear it even from a considerable distance,” he explained.
Dalilamouhib’s video has earned over 3 million likes on TikTok.
