Xnspy has been garnering some rave reviews. Recently, it launched its new version for iPhone users. This version claims to be compatible with the latest iOS, and they have added some more features to its already-available arsenal. Though its Android version has been a hit among the users, let us see how this latest version for the iPhone users turns out to be.


Monitoring app users have long understood the compromises and challenges. Over the years, Xnspy has worked on the user experience to address those compatibility issues. The first one is the iPhone’s operating system’s compatibility issue.

Apple releases various updates every year to improve its operating system. Many of the apps in the market don’t live up to those standards and leave many users disappointed. Another previous issue was jailbreaking the iPhone before installing a monitoring app. But this process has been almost obsolete now except for a few older versions of the iPhone.

Thankfully, Xnspy users do not have to worry about these issues anymore. The big takeaway from this version is that it supports the new iOS 12.1 as well as the previous versions of the iOS.

Another good thing is that it does not require manual installation as was in the case of the previous version. All you need to do is to pair your Xnspy account with the iCloud account of the monitored user, and you are all set. These compatibility advantages make Xnspy an even better choice for monitoring an iPhone.

But Xnspy is not just an iPhone spy app. It is equally good on Android phones where it supports the latest Android Oreo 8.0 and is compatible with almost all major Android brands. There is, however, some difference in both these versions that is understood due to the variations in two different operating systems.


All mentioned before, this version of the Xnspy iPhone spy app does not require any manual installation like the previous ones. To setup Xnspy, you first need to visit their website and subscribe to the app.

They send you an email on your registered email ID with your login details and some instructions. After the subscription, get hold of the iPhone you wish to monitor and turn on its iCloud backup.

A few other changes are needed whose instructions are sent to your email. After doing this, all you need to do is to enter the iCloud credentials of the monitored iPhone to your Xnspy account to complete the setup process. It will take 24-48 hours to upload the data from the phone to your Xnspy account. As a whole, the setup process makes it all look too easy.

Design & Interface

They have not brought radical changes to the interface in this new iPhone spy app version, iterating a few small elements of the interface with a new refreshing look. At the same time, they have been gradually improving the performance of the app.

The most notable visual change is the contrast change in the dashboard which is meant to highlight the features separately on the screen. The features list has been aligned on the left side of the dashboard in a charcoal black color.

There is a lot more on a single screen that has been organized well by the developers. The dashboard is compact and packs all the information just a tap away.

The account information is in the center of the screen which displays the package duration, the days left in your package, and the type of device it is monitoring. Another interesting thing in the interface is that it displays the live location of the monitored device and the battery percentage on it. Xnspy’s web-based portal also allows you to download and save important data on your device. All in all, Xnspy’s interface design is compact and easy to navigate for any user.


Xnspy’s premium version packs more than 35 features. Following are some notable mentions:

Remote Control: One of the top features of Xnspy is that it allows you to monitor a smartphone through its features remotely. You don’t need to touch the device for certain things.

You have to send the command from your online account, and the task is done on the monitored phone. For example, if you don’t want your kid to spend hours playing online games, you can remotely lock the phone through your Xnspy account. This can only be opened by a code that only you can set through your account.

Surround record: Another interesting feature of Xnspy’s remote capabilities is surround recording. You can record the surroundings of the monitored iPhone using this feature by remotely sending a command. Though apps provide call recordings on the monitored phone but with this feature, you can listen to anything happening around the phone even if it’s not on a call.

It can record a maximum of 30 minutes in a single session. After recording, the audio clip is uploaded to your account where you can listen to it.

Watchlist Alerts: You can make monitoring much easier with this feature. With more than 35 features, it is not only difficult to monitor each of them, but it also takes a lot of time to get to the right information.

If you want to save your time and get the right information, you can set separate watch lists for the different types of information in your Xnspy account. Your Xnspy account has watch lists for words, contacts, emails, and locations. Once a contact or a location in entered in a watch list, the Xnspy iPhone spy app starts monitoring it, and whenever that word or location appears on the monitored phone, you are sent an alert.


One good news for all the users is that with all those improvements, Xnspy has not hiked the price of its packages.

The price of the packages remains unchanged. It is available in two different packages, i.e., Basic and Premium. The basic package is for those who do not want to go beyond the standard level of monitoring. It comprises standard features like accessing contacts, internet history, call records, etc. The basic package can be subscribed annually for $8.33 per month.

The premium package is known for all the signature features of Xnspy. It has the remote control and surrounds record features besides many other top-notch features. It is the full-featured version, and that’s why it costs more than the basic package. But the price difference is not huge between the packages. The annual subscription of premium package is $12.49 per month.

Both these packages are available for monthly, quarterly, and yearly subscriptions which makes it flexible for the users to choose according to their use. A few users complain of not offering any trial version of the app, but they have tried to make up for it by offering a demo on their official site.


A few things that make Xnspy the best iPhone spy app are:

The app’s compatibility for the iOS 12.1 is one of its prime features.
Xnspy’s pricing is flexible with price touching as low as $8.33 per month.
Some features like remote monitoring and surround recording alone make it worth buying.


Although the new version has a lot of improvements, there are a few things that a user might think Xnspy could have offered.

There is no trial version. They have a demo on their site to make up for that.
There are slightly more features in the Android version.


This new version of Xnspy iPhone spy app lives up to the standards. It is fast and equipped with all those features that people need to get most things done when monitoring. From compatibility to the price, everything makes it a hit. There are a couple of improvements still needed. But overall the app has been made to perform at the maximum of its potential offering ease as well as reliability.
