Facetime glitch Lets iPhone Users Eavesdrop, Apple disables group call feature

Apple has annnounced a patch to fix an embarrasing facetime snafu after
news site 9to5Mac reported on a strange glitch in the company’s iPhones. The issue: It turns out that an iPhone user can call another iPhone user and listen in on that person’s conversations through the device’s microphone.

Apple appears to have disabled the ability for users to make group calls on FaceTime too as a temporary remedy. A software glitch reportedly allows callers to hear audio and view video from a target device even if the call is rejected.

Apple which is set to report disappointing financial earnings on Tuesday might be quite unnerved by the glitchnews. The Silicon Valley company has long positioned itself as a protector of user privacy offering more secure devices than its rivals.
