It is now possible to obtain an iPhone spy app that will allow for monitoring of all activity that takes place on that iPhone. The monitoring functions available include standard logging of calls and tracking of text messages, as well as advanced features including live call interception, GPS location, and the ability to read text messages and e-mails.
Specific iPhone related features that are found in advanced iPhone spy apps include spy call that allows the monitoring party to listen to the surroundings of an iPhone, as well as the ability to view browser logs and even photos taken by the iPhone that is being monitored. Another exclusive feature found on the best and most sophisticated spy apps for iPhone is a contact monitor that tracks the contacts which are added to the phone's contact book
Installing an iPhone spy app is a matter of "jailbreaking" the iPhone on which the app is to be installed and then simply installing the app in the same manner as a normal iPhone app is installed. While "jailbreaking," or freeing the phone from some of the internal Apple restrictions, is necessary because the spy app must be installed in a way that avoids detection, this is a very simple procedure. In fact, the entire installation of even the most fully featured iPhone app rarely takes more than 15 – 30 minutes including the "jailbreaking" process.
The app then sends information to the phone or e-mail address that has been selected by the individual who will monitor the phone. There is also one model available that does not work as a traditional app, but rather allows users to download present as well as deleted information from an iPhone to a computer; This is useful not only for spy applications but also to recover lost data.
Whether an iPhone is being monitored in order to make sure an employee or loved one can easily be located when in an unsafe situation, or to track children's usage of various iPhone features, or even to gather evidence regarding employee or marital dishonesty, an iPhone spy app can take advantage of the particular features of the communications device to record and monitor all usage and activity.
