I believe my phone was hacked through Bluetooth. I found 2 Bluetooth devices that I didn’t recognize. My phone had been getting hot easily, not charging, battery was dying quickly and gps incorrect. I reset my settings on my iPhone. I would like to find out who hacked into my phone and what should I do now

    Finding out who hacked your phone is near impossible. The most likely cause of phone issues is due to downloading a bad app or opening an infected email or going to questionable websites that may load malware when you click on a button that may ask for age verification or for you to accept their terms. Bluetooth has a very limited short range so I doubt this was the point of entry.

    You can't find out by posting a question on the Internet (assuming any "hacking" was even done). And you likely can't find out by turning the phone over to a forensics expert even though that's probably the best choice for you.

    Other than finding out, the likely best action is simply to reset the phone and start fresh. From then on, adhere to safe practices. (They've been posted hundreds of times in many places.)

    Just one thing, Have you updated iPhone with recent iOS update? Probably it is 12.4.1, also you have to update other system apps also.

    For your kind information, connection through Bluetooth on iPhone is much more difficult than other smartphone type. Is it necessary to open your iPhone's Bluetooth every time ?
