"I only know someone's phone number, can I spy on their iPhone?" Many users may have this question! Is it possible? If so, what data can be monitored on someone's iPhone? If not, are there any easy methods to help you spy on someone's iPhone without them knowing?


If you are troubled by these questions, congratulations, you've come to the right place! This article will focus on your concerns about spying on someone's iPhone with just the phone number. Let's uncover the answers to these questions together!


Part 1. Can I spy on someone's iPhone with just the phone number


Before answering this question, we have to figure out what are all the ways in which you can currently spy on someone's iPhone:


Method 1. iCloud accreditation


Method 2. USB connection and transfer


Method 3. Jailbreak


Method 4. Hacking


Method 1. iCloud accreditation


This method uses cloud account authentication to connect. No software needs to be installed on the target device; remote monitoring is done through cloud authentication.


Method 2. USB connection and transfer


This way should be very easy to understand, that is, you need to use a USB cable to connect the iPhone you want to monitor with your pre-prepared computer, and then transfer the data from the target iPhone to your computer. This method requires you to get the target iPhone for a relatively long time, and the duration of the transfer depends on the amount of data being transferred.


Method 3. Jailbreak


This method requires jailbreaking the target phone and then installing a spy app on it. It is technically challenging, and while some iPhone spy app claims to offer remote jailbreaking support, it is not recommended.


Method 4. Hacking


This way involves hiring a professional hacker to attack someone's iPhone, which is highly unrecommended and illegal!


Based on the methods discussed above, we have concluded that currently, there is no way to spy on someone's iPhone just by entering their phone number.


However, although it's not possible to spy on someone's iPhone just by using a phone number, we can try other simple methods to spy on someone's iPhone without them knowing, such as using iCloud accreditation. This is the only way to remotely and in real-time spy on someone's iPhone without having to access the target iPhone, and SpyX uses this monitoring solution.

The IMEI number, similar to an "ID number," is not unfamiliar to iPhone users. Some articles claim that using the IMEI number can remotely monitor someone's iPhone, but this is not true.
