iPhone is popular for their security and privacy feature. Hence, people who are very curious about their privacy pick iPhone over other Android smartphones. However, an iPhone is not unhackable; there are some spy apps for iPhone that work without jailbreaking the target device.
However, these apps only work if you know the Apple ID of the target person. The reason being that, these apps track the iPhone through iCloud. Hence you must know the Apple ID if you want to spy on someone’s iPhone.
But is there any way using which you can spy on iPhone without Apple ID or jailbreak? Let’s find out.
Is It Possible to Spy on iPhone Without Apple ID or Jailbreak?
Yes, it is very much possible to spy on an iPhone without Apple ID or jailbreaking it. However, there are some conditions that you need to fulfill. For instance, if you want to spy on someone without Apple ID then you will mostly need to jailbreak the target phone. Whereas, if you want to track an iPhone without jailbreaking then you must know their Apple ID.
But don’t worry, I have other tips using which you can spy on iPhone without Apple ID or jailbreaking it. So keep reading the article and you will get an answer to your questions.
How to Spy on iPhone When You Know the Apple ID?
This one is pretty simple task, if you know the Apple ID then 90% of your work is already done. Now, all you have to do is get a subscription of any of iOS spyware of your choice and then use the Apple ID to track their activities on iPhone.
This method has limited features since you are tracking the target person through their iCloud account. Hence, you can only keep an eye on their activities that are synced to their iCloud account. For examples, their WhatsApp messages, photos, videos, iMessages, etc. You won’t be able to track their location or listen to their call recordings this way.
How to Spy on iPhone When You Don’t Know the Apple ID?
If you don’t know the Apple ID then you must jailbreak the target iPhone in order to spy on it. Once the iPhone is jailbroken, you can then install a phone monitoring app on it and start monitoring it remotely without any issues.
There aren’t many spy apps out there that can track a jailbroken iPhone; the one I know and have tested is FlexiSPY. Once you have installed the app on the target iPhone, you don’t have to know the Apple ID of the target person. However, you will need to have access to the phone for one time while you are installing the app on the phone.
This method gives you access to more advanced features such as getting control of their camera and microphone, reading their social media messages, listening to their call recordings, tracking their location, and much more.
How to Spy on iPhone Without Apple ID or Jailbreak
Now let’s have a look at few options you have when you don’t have the Apple ID neither can jailbreak the target iPhone.
1. Make Use of Parental Control Apps
There are lots of parental control apps available out there but the one that shines the most is FamiSafe. You can download this app from the App Store since it is a parental control app and it is legal to download it.
However, these apps are only meant for parents to monitor their minor kids. That means you get limited features here. For example you can only track browsing history, screen time and more. These apps can’t show you the call recordings or social media messages that you must be willing to check to catch a cheating spouse.
Moreover, unlike spyware these apps are not hidden on the target phone. You can see their icon in the app drawer. If your spouse or partner see the icon they will get suspicious of you. But that isn’t a problem as you can hide the icon on their phone and hence they can never detect the spyware.
2. Hire a Hacker
Hiring a hacker is also a good option you have in case you don’t know the Apple ID of someone who you want to track and you can’t jailbreak their iPhone either. You can find a hacker for the job by doing a simple Google search. Although hackers are very professional and they hack anyone’s phone for you but they’ll also charge you a hefty some of money so be prepared for it. I would only recommend you going for a hacker if it’s really very important for you to spy on someone.
