As compared to Android phones, iPhones are difficult to hack. Thanks to the stringent rules and regulations by Apple which keeps a tight check on apps which are uploaded to the Appstore. Also, it is difficult to find a dependable antivirus app in the Appstore because Apple has a lot of limitations on scanning other Apps and accessing their data. Very few legitimate applications get through these filters and are then available in the Appstore. Also, even after publishing the App, if the Apps are found to be malicious, Apple has a good history of banning these apps. Even Reddit got banned from Appstore once due to non-compliance. You can know more about the banning history of Apple here. All this is good. But, this does not mean that the iPhones are not hackable.

If you think that your iPhone is hacked, or want to know if your iPhone is hacked or not? 

Just follow the below steps:

  1. 1
    Is your iPhone’s battery is draining faster than usual? This might happen if something is going on in the background without your notice. An app might be processing your data or sending it over via internet. Keep a check your normal battery usage, and if there is an uncertain rise in it something might be fishy.
  2. 2
    There is a rise in data consumption than regular usage. Most of us don’t reach our data limit monthly. But if you do starting hitting that limit, something might be wrong. Its possible that an Application or Virus might be processing and sharing your data with a third party.
  3. 3
    Your iPhone is behaving strange. If you are receiving strange texts, calls or notifications or your iPhone is taking too much of load and overheating, this is a heads up sign for you to check.
  4. 4
    Cydia is automatically installed in your iPhone. This application is used after Jailbreaking your iPhone and bypasses all the apple’s regulations and rules. Which means any third party app can be installed in your iPhone without Appstore access. If you have not installed Cydia then definitely someone has tapered with your iPhone leaving you highly vulnerable.
  5. 5
    You are hearing creepy background sounds on calls. It is normal to hear common background noises, but if you are hearing creepy tones like clicks or taps, there is a high possibility of someone else overhearing the conversation or being hacked.
