New coloured dots on your iPhone? Telecommunications Regulatory Authority clarifies new
iOS 14 feature
What is the new green or orange dot on your phone?
Dubai: Noticed the new small green or yellow dots appearing on top right of your iPhone screen near signal strength? It’s been up there over the past two days, according to a clarification issued by the UAE Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) published on Sunday.
The note states that it comes with the iOS 14 released recently. “When you see the green or orange dot on the top of the iPhone screen after updating to iOS 14, that is an alert that the app you’re using has started to use either your camera (green) or microphone (orange),” the authority explained.
