Don sent in – “Can an iPhone be hacked?” While all smartphones have some level of vulnerability, the chance of an iPhone being hacked is pretty small.
If an iPhone has been hacked it most likely that the phone has been jailbroken. This means that someone has had physical access to the phone, passcode knowledge and modified the Operating System. the iPhone would have to be out of your control to be compromised.
Remote attacks can happen by visiting malicious websites or file. But this is very rare and easily patched in OS updates.
To avoid being hacked, keep your phone in your possession, always update to the latest versions of iOS and don’t share your passcode.
