Apple Reveals It Had to Fix Another Bug in FaceTime

Nelson Wang

First there was the Group FaceTime bug that allowed users to eavesdrop on another user even if that user hadn't answered the call. Apple was made aware of the bug for some time, but only responded to it last week after news of it went viral on social media, shutting down Group FaceTime while it worked on a patch. On top of that, Apple has had to threaten software developers to remove their apps from the App Store if they record users actions without their express permission, an issue that Tech Crunch exposed this week.
