Apple's AirPods headset may be used to listen to user conversations.

Apple released the Live Listen feature for AirPods in the iOS 12 update released last September. Live Listen allows the iPhone to be used as a directional microphone or as a hearing aid.

Apple AirPods is accused of being used for eavesdropping behavior

To activate this feature, the user needs to go to the "Control Center" menu under "Settings", click "Custom Control", then Click the plus sign next to the Hearing icon to add it to the Control Center.

This process is quite simple. Users only need to activate the real-time monitoring function to leave the iPhone near the people they want to monitor, and they can listen to conversations from other places through their AirPods. It's unclear whether Apple is aware of this and whether it will take action on it.
