New ‘Feature’ Apps
Your iPhone doesn’t offer x-ray vision, a lie detector, or shake-to-charge functionality. Any app that tells you it can add these features is straight up lying. A good rule of thumb: if it’s not on Apple’s specifications or features list, and if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is a scam.
For most of us, this seems like an obvious tip. But younger users or the less technically savvy among us may not realize that their “fingerprint heart rate” app doesn’t actually work — and may actually be a threat to their privacy and security. Do yourself a favor and avoid them.
