New iOS update fixes Group FaceTime Bug

Apple has just released iOS 12.1.4.  Yay! Why Yay?  Well, the update includes a fix for the much talked about privacy bug in Group FaceTime.

 

Which bug? Well if you haven’t heard, there was a flaw in the previous iOS that let callers access the call recipient’s microphone and front-facing camera.

 

 

From the Source: “We again apologize to our customers and we thank them for their patience,” Apple also noticed that there was another vulnerability whereby participants could capture Live Photos during a FaceTime call. “To protect customers who have not yet upgraded to the latest software, we have updated our servers to block the Live Photos feature of FaceTime for older versions of iOS and macOS,”

 

 

If you want to use Group FaceTime and not have to worry about the bug, —> Back up your iOS device, connect to Wi-Fi ,  go to Settings > General > Software Update to install the latest version of the operating system, iOS 12.1.4.

 

Now, who wants to FaceTime party?!
