By itself, iPhones aren’t burner phones.

All you need is Phoner.
Phoner burner phone app gives you access to unlimited burner phone numbers from around the world. Simply get it from the Apple Store, install it and start using your iPhone as an apple burner phone, easy and hassle-free.

What to take note when using iPhone as an Apple burner phone
It’s certainly easy to use your iPhone as an Apple burner phone, but just as easy to lose your privacy protection as well.
iPhones are feature-rich. And unlike your run-of-the-mill burner phones, iPhones also come with unique IMEI numbers that can be used to track and identify users.
If you want to use your old (or new) iPhone as an Apple burner phone, here’s what you need to know:
Tip 1: Refrain from using the same burner phone number more than once.
Regardless of what kind of burner phone or burner phone app you’re using, this rule always holds.
A burner phone or burner phone number should only be used once. Frequent usage of the same device or number makes it easier for anyone with the right tools and know-how to track you down.
This is especially the case for iPhones, which come with unique IMEI numbers.
With Phoner, we recommend disposing of burner phone numbers after just 1 to 2 calls.
If you plan to use our burner phone numbers as a permanent second phone number, know that the privacy protection afforded by burner phone numbers may not apply anymore.
Tip 2: Refrain from engaging in online activity on your iPhone
A good reason why you should use a burner phone app instead is this – you shouldn’t be surfing the internet on a burner phone.
Most mobile devices today have a unique MAC address. When a device connects to the internet, this MAC address is shared with your internet service provider (ISP).
By sharing your MAC address, your ISP is able to track your online activity and trace your whereabouts.
The thing is, who gets an iPhone but doesn’t go online?
With a burner phone app like Phoner, you won’t need to worry about this.
Tip 3: Check your iPhone privacy settings
Even the best burner phone app won’t keep you completely anonymous if your phone is actively sharing your data on-the-go.
If you don’t already know, many mobile devices have in-built ad-tracking and location-tracking features that share your online and physical activity with companies.
The good news? Apple has made it easier for users to configure their user privacy settings on iPhones. If you’re not sure how and where to get started, we highly recommend giving our iPhone privacy guide a quick read.
