UAE issues notice on new iOS14 alerts

A new feature in Apple's iOS14 alerts you if an app is using the camera or microphone.

The notice was issued by the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority on Sunday. The new feature is part of the Apple's new operating system - highly-anticipated iOS 14 - that was made available earlier this month.

In a notice to Apple device users in UAE, TRA said that if you notice that the sign appears even though the app does not need it, it means that the app is trying to access the camera or microphone without the user's knowledge.

In this case, TRA recommends contacting the app developer to get a clarification, or removing the app and reporting it to the App store.
