Nick explained, “Yet again, another urgent warning was just issued to literally anybody that owns an iPhone, so if you have one, you need to watch this. Basically, iPhone users are being warned over a little orange dot that shows up at the top of your screen.”

He said, “This has been all over the news, and in fact, the orange dot is a warning sign from Apple that someone is using your microphone without your permission.”

FYI, an orange dot should only appear on your phone if you’re using an app that needs to access your phone’s microphone…so that’s something to be on the lookout for…
