Iphone tracking discovery

Does Apple doing away with traditional headphone jacks in favor of their new lightning port have you in desperate search of a workaround option? Do you love sticking it to the man, and showing him who’s the boss? Are you the sort of do-it-yourself kind of person that isn’t afraid to take matters into your own hands? If you answered yes to all three of these questions, then I’m about to save you $800 bucks with these next few words: do not, under any circumstances, drill a hole in your iPhone 7 looking for headphone jack gold. It’s a hoax. Put down the power tools, and step away from the perfectly properly functioning iPhone.

Why am I telling you all this? Well, it’s because YouTube user TechRax already has headphone jack truthers out here believing all it takes to bring back the headphone jack is a drill and some will. The DIY video shows the user taking a 3.5mm drill bit to the bottom of his shiny new iPhone 7, then simply plugging in some earbuds and listening to music. That’s it! Life hacks, yo! Wrong, now you have a hole in your iPhone 7 that leads to nowhere except regret. It’s a regret hole.

Let us repeat; drilling a hole into your phone is not a thing you should do, and you should not be doing this thing. Either use the adapter Apple provides, or for the love of everything that is sacred, deal with lightning port life and take the headphone jack L. It’s quite possible in the future someone comes up with a legitimate hack that enables you to use your old headphones on your iPhone 7 without any adapters, but this is not it.

There is a large amount of so-called smartphone “spy software” available that promises to log everything a phone does, while attempting to remain undetectable. Compromised devices are easily traceable via GPS How to Use an Android Smartphone as a Tracking Device How to Use an Android Smartphone as a Tracking Device Need a GPS tracker? Use your Android device! Read More , can record incoming and outgoing text messages, log phone calls, and can even be used to view photos and browser history.

Installing such software on Android or BlackBerry devices is morally questionably, but generally easier than doing so on an iPhone. To spy on an iPhone, you’ve got to circumvent Apple’s own restrictions and protective measures, potentially exposing the device to security holes and software incompatibility in the process.

Spy software, by its very nature, is designed to snoop on people. It is for this reason that anyone reading this who is contemplating installing such software probably doesn’t care what I have to say about any aspect of doing so. If you’re already thinking about doing this, you’ve probably already ethically justified the practice in your head. Whatever your reasoning for doing so, it’s always worth considering how you would feel if someone did the same to you.
