Apple turned off the group-chat feature last week, after a 14-year-old boy in Tucson, Arizona, discovered the flaw. The company has come under fire for its delayed response.
Apple stomped the group FaceTime bug that allowed people to eavesdrop on other iPhone users. It mitigates what the company describes as a "logic issue [that] existed in the handling of Group FaceTime calls".
On Thursday, the tech giant announced the release of a software update for iPhones and iPads to fix the security issue, CNBC reported. As Apple's system status page points out, the group FaceTime servers are now back online and you can once again make group FaceTime calls- but only after you update.
Albert Finney Has Died At 82 | News
The five-time Oscar nominee, who was born in Salford in 1936, made his movie debut with a small part in The Entertainer in 1960. He showed off his vocal chops in 1970's Scrooge and 1982's Annie , for which he shaved his head to play Daddy Warbucks.
The damage may already have been done, however, as the company is already facing lawsuits over the FaceTime bug as well as an upcoming grilling by concerned lawmakers.
It remains unclear how long Apple was aware of the Group FaceTime security flaw.
At the same time, Apple is as cryptic as always in "detailing" the issues fixed by iOS 12.1.4.
76ers dealing Markelle Fultz to Magic
The Sixers have been rather busy this season on the trade front, making a number of blockbuster moves. If it does not convey, the 76ers will receive second-round picks in the 2022 and 2023 draft.
Apple also formally credited Thompson and Daven Morris from Arlington, Texas in the release notes to its latest iPhone software update. Callers were able to activate another person's microphone remotely even before the person has accepted or rejected the call. What made this bug so serious was how trivial it was to leverage, and it forced Apple to pull the plug on the feature at the server end while it developed a fix.
The iOS 12.1.4 update is compatible with all the iPhone and iPad models running iOS 12. These will download in the background and install overnight when the device is connected to mains power.
The recommended way to update your devices is to tap Settings General Software Update and carry out the update from there. There's also an update for the Shortcuts app on iOS from Apple.
