Sudden Battery Life Problems
Hacking isn’t usually just a brief session. Hackers try to install various types of malware on iPhones so they can keep an eye on conversations and look for valuable data, or create backdoors for easier access. All that means that a hacked iPhone usually has extra, hidden software running in the background for spying and similar purposes.
You may not be able to see this malware, but your battery sure knows it exists. A hacked iPhone will often suddenly suffer from battery issues. You may find that your battery drains much faster than it used to only a few days ago, or that the battery seems to drain even when the phone is unused. It’s natural for iPhone batteries to experience battery decline over the years, but sudden changes like this can mean something is afoot.
