Did you know that your iPhone can listen in to conversations without you being in the same room?

Did you also know that you can hear that conversation with a pair of AirPods?

SO what does this mean?

It's a feature within the iPhone called Live Listen. It makes your iPhone a listening device when paired with AirPods

But what does that REALLY mean?

It means your Mother-in-law better watch her mouth from now on.

Here's how you can try this out yourself.

To add Live Listen to the Control Centre on your iPhone

  • Make sure your AirPods are out and active
  • Go to Settings
  • Then Control Centre
  • Scroll down until you find Hearing
  • Press the PLUS button next to Hearing
  • Then tap on Settings to save your changes.

So the moral of this hack is to never trust an iPhone sitting on a bench or table.

Now whilst this hack can be used for not-so-good intentions, the true use for this is people that are hard of hearing.

By simply placing your phone in the middle of the group conversation, you bring the conversation straight into your AirPod.
