Your iPhone can bust you as a cheater — here are 7 sneaky ways

Please be careful if you use iPhilander.

Just as smartwatches and fitness apps can inadvertently reveal infidelity, iPhones can just as easily expose a cheating partner.

While a couple may try all sorts of measures to hide their affair, such as using a different credit card or arranging to meet in a secret location, even the most tech-savvy cheater can be exposed by the incriminating information on their Apple devices.

Here are seven ways a suspicious partner can use your iPhone to find out if you’re cheating.

Recovering deleted text

If you think deleting a dirty message with a side squeeze is okay, think again.

Text can be restored for 40 days after it has been “deleted.” Daily Mail.

Once your partner has access to your iPhone, they can open the Messages app and tap on “Edit” in the top left corner.

You’ll then see a “Show Recently Deleted” option, asking if you’d like to restore anything deleted in the last 40 days.

Autofill

Similar to deleting text messages, simply clearing your iPhone’s Safari search history isn’t enough.

OId searches are often exposed through autofill features.

To avoid being bankrupted by this feature, you should not only delete your browser history but also clear your cache in your iPhone’s Settings app.

Secret App

You might think you’re being clever by putting your dating, sex, and secret messaging apps in an unmarked or suspiciously named folder, but a nosy partner is sure to find out. picsmart – stock.adobe.com

You might think you’re being clever by putting your dating, sex, and secret messaging apps in an unmarked or suspiciously named folder, but a nosy partner is sure to find out.

Interestingly, an upcoming iOS 18 update is expected to include a feature that will let you hide apps that can only be accessed with Face ID.

However, the app is reportedly set to be saved in a folder labeled “hidden,” meaning that if a loved one has access to your phone, they’ll be caught out in no time.

Meanwhile, iCloud also stores records of all apps downloaded and deleted using your Apple ID.

All your partner has to do is go to the App Store on your iPhone, click on your account page and select “Apps” to see all the apps you’ve ever downloaded.

iCloud Sync

All your loved one has to do is get hold of your Apple ID email and password, log onto iCloud on any desktop, and filter through all the evidential information. prima91 – stock.adobe.com

Similarly, iCloud backs up a variety of information, including photos and messages that you thought you’d deleted.

All your loved one has to do is get hold of your Apple ID email and password, log onto iCloud on any desktop, and filter through all the evidential information.

Additionally, iCloud can be synced with other devices that are already easily accessible to other users.

According to the Daily Mail, a cheating husband was recently arrested after his wife discovered that messages he had sent to a prostitute had been backed up on the family’s computer.

The husband is now suing Apple for $6.3 million, claiming that a lack of explanation about iCloud and the deleted messages contributed to their divorce.

Location services

Find My Device allows anyone logged into your iCloud account to locate your iPhone.

This means that if your partner has your Apple ID and password, they’ll be able to see your location in real time, as well as scrutinize all the other information backed up to your account.

Screening time

If you spend a significant amount of time on your device sexting with your cheating partner or browsing extramarital sex-focused apps, Apple’s weekly Screen Time report could expose you. Tada Images – stock.adobe.com

If you spend a significant amount of time on your device sexting with your cheating partner or browsing extramarital sex-focused apps, Apple’s weekly Screen Time report could expose you.

A detailed breakdown of all your apps can be seen by clicking “See all your app and website activity.”

Emoji

If you’re sexting with someone other than your partner, the erotic emojis you used will remain in your keyboard’s “frequently used” folder even if you delete the message.

So, next time you send an eggplant emoji to someone you’re not related to, think twice.
