Apple iPhone    customers were informed about the meaning of the orange dot on their phones

In addition to the orange dot showing on screen, users will also be able to get privacy information on the App Store to help further understand the privacy practices about every app before they download it. In a statement about the orange dot and the iOS 14 update, Apple said: “An indicator appears at the top of your screen whenever an app is using your microphone or camera. And in Control Center, you can see if an app has used them recently.”

A ‘warning dot’ has appeared at the top of your iPhone since the iOS 14 software upgrade. But what exactly does it imply? It’s crucial to be aware of this in the event that your phone is being exploited maliciously. It’s basically there to let you know when an app uses your microphone or camera.

  • “Privacy is a fundamental human right and at the core of everything we do. That’s why with iOS 14, we’re giving you more control over the data you share and more transparency into how it’s used,” Apple added.

  • Apple users will then be able to check the app’s permissions within the Settings section, and can deny apps access to your microphone or camera – or they have the option to delete the app altogether.
