This is how your iPhone is tracked even when it's off

This is how your iPhone is tracked even when it's off


Researchers at the Technical University of Damstadt in Germany have discovered that the iPhone can be tracked even when it is turned off. Khaj has concluded that the wireless chips in the iPhone work even when it is turned off.


According to the researcher, it is possible to track the iPhone even for 24 hours after it is turned off, as the various features of the phone are active. So, if you are an iPhone user, this might be suitable for you.



If your phone is lost or stolen, you can track and find your phone even when it is turned off. However, some hackers can take advantage of this and gain access by tracking the user's iPhone even when it is turned off.


Who can be at risk of offline hacking?

This weakness is not a concern for the average user. This weakness can become a matter of risk for users who use jail breaking devices. Jailbreaking is a process in which the error of the device is exploited.


It is used by installing software other than those provided by the manufacturer for that device. In a general sense, understand that the user using the jailbreaking device can get access to the operating system and all its features.


Since jailbroken devices already have various errors, such devices are more vulnerable.


Should you be afraid of the vulnerability of being tracked even when the iPhone is turned off?


The searcher has suggested not to be afraid of the security vulnerability. If you have a jailbroken device, you need to take some precautions.


This feature seems to be already included so that the device can be tracked if it is lost or stolen. However, since this is a security vulnerability, please install the latest iOS update.

What does quantum physics tell us about reality? Quantum physics provides us with a new understanding of reality that is different from our classical understanding. In classical physics, things have definite properties, like position and velocity, and the physical world is objective and exists independently of our observations.

 Sophistication of Metaverse Avatars The term "metaverse" refers to a collective virtual shared space, typically containing many individual virtual worlds. Within the metaverse, users can interact with each other and with digital content through the use of avatars, which are virtual representations of the user's identity. The sophistication of these avatars can vary depending on the capabilities of the platform and the level of detail and customization that is possible.
