IF you’ve had an iPhone for a while, you may have noticed strange colors appearing in the status bar. That’s the bar that runs along the top of your device, according to Sun.
It’s normally where you’ll find the time, your WiFi and cellular signal, and the battery reading.
But sometimes the space around time takes on a different color.
You may notice that it changes to a blue, green, red, or purple background.
Each one has a different meaning that you need to pay attention to.
“On iPhone X and later, the color appears as a bubble behind time,” explains Apple.
“On iPhone 8 or earlier, the color goes all the way across the status bar.”
If the bar turns blue, it means one of two things.
The first is that your iPhone uses Screen Mirroring, allowing you to share content to another device in real time.
And the second is that an app actively uses your location.
You need to watch out for this to ensure that apps use your location data properly – and don’t access it when they shouldn’t.
If the bar turns green, it may mean you are on a phone call.
But it can also mean that your iPhone provides a personal hotspot for another device to piggyback on your internet connection.
If the bar turns red, it means your device is doing one of two things.
It either records audio (like in the Voice Memos app) or it records your screen.
Finally, if the bar turns purple, it means your iPhone is using SharePlay to share content.
Be sure to keep an eye on these status indicators because they can reveal what your iPhone is doing in the background—and whether your apps are working as they should.
