Nobody can hacked your iPhone without physically doing it.
Change your Apple ID password.
Do not let anyone use your Apple ID.
Do a restore from backup.

I don't know why people say an iphone can't be hacked or taken over without it being jailbroken, there is nothing that has been created that cannot be taken over by a good hacker/programmer. Even government systems can be hacked you seriously think apple has better protection software than the CIA.

Show the proof, talking is easy. Proof your theory, otherwise go away.
Did you actually read my post?
"Nobody can hacked your iPhone without physically doing it."

Proof my theory? Do you mean PROVE? "Nobody can hacked"? I think you meant hack, and yes someone can do it without physically needing the phone. My "theory" does'nt need to be proven because these things have happened before. You realize government websites have been shutdown before right? You do realize Mac's can get viruses right? Yes they can, why isn't it problem? Apple products aren't widespread enough for people to care about it.

So the Internet proved you are right. Did you see the UFO sighting in YouTube as well?
BTW, you think the govenment or NSA or CIA or your next door neighbor is interested in OP's iPhone?
Give me a break. Sure, theoretically everything is possible and prove of concept is also there. You said the Apple products are not wide spread enough is another BS. There are over 800 millions devices with over 400 millions credit accounts. Thieves are not interested? The real reason is because it is very secured and hard to crack.
Stop the FUD.

Mac OS X has no viruses.
Hacking into a web server is not the same thing as controlling a remote device.
Learn a little something about the topic before spouting nonsense.

It is definitely possible. My iphone 5 was hacked to the point they replaced it in Aug. and now appears to be hacked again. Naysayers please know - anything can be hacked. It was only a matter of time before hackers targeted iOS with the same tenacity they have targeted Windows OS for decades.
What happens on my phone this time is apps are opened I didn't open and Safari searches are initiated I did not initiate.
This was how it began in August, but escalated to phone calls made to people in my contact list, emails sent out to folks I don't even know, texts sent that I didn't initiate.
I even had Youtube begin and a live feed of a golf tournament start up while I was at work with the phone on the charger - not touching it.
They only replaced it at the Apple store when I showed them proof of stuff being sent out in the middle of the night when I wasn't on it and when it opened an App on its own while they were looking at it.
I work in IT and security is crucial to me. I have the phone pretty well locked down and it still happens.
So yes, it is possible. Next - what is Apple doing about it?

Nothing. Because it is not happening as you suggested.
Do you think all the security companies, tech news, bloggers, apple haters, etc will keep quiet if your story is true.
