IPad Pro 2020 has a microphone designed for privacy

IPad Pro 2020

Apple revealed that the microphone of the iPad Pro 2020 is designed to protect your privacy as it is connected to the T2 security chip, which disconnects the microphone when the device is closed, and no program can secretly listen to you even if the device is in root or jailbreak mode. The same feature is present on Mac computers and secretly protects the computer's camera from operating. Apple said that the feature will work on compatible and approved Apple MFi covers. Apple advised users to obtain this type to avoid deception of the T2 chip by unofficial covers, as the chip may not recognize that the device is closed properly and thus does not disconnect the microphone.
