I-SPY Watch out for this green dot on your iPhone - it means someone is watching

• The Sun

IF you've ever panicked that an app might be watching through your iPhone's camera, Apple has got you covered.

The latest iPhone update adds a new "warning dot" that alerts you whenever your microphone or camera is activated.

That means if any app is surreptitiously recording you, you'll know about it.

It's all part of the new iPhone update – find out how to download iOS 14 right now.

In iOS 14, a green dot will appear in the upper right corner of the screen when the cameras activated.

And it's orange if the microphone was activated.

By swiping into your Control Centre, you'll be able to see details about which app is using the microphone.

If you suspect something is up, you should check the app's permissions in Settings.

You can deny specific apps access to your microphone or camera, for instance.

And if you're really worried, you could just delete the app altogether.

"Privacy is a fundamental human right and at the core of everything we do," Apple explained.
