I doubt they did this on their own since a back door into software and systems have been going on for over decade. It's probably been regulated and mandated that computers have a second on-off switch/back door for government.

All this would be less likely if they built one manual on off switch/button/circuit including the indicator light for the cams & microphones.

I also saw where the software to track your phone is frequently hidden in the apps people download. They also 'hide' that information in the user agreement.
