Bug-spotting teen gets a thank you in Apple’s latest iOS update

Apple Has Finally Released A FaceTime Fix That You Need To Download Right Now

Essentially, if a user made a Group FaceTime call and swiped up on the interface then added their own number before another participant could join, the software would think a chat had started and begun feeding audio from the requested user's microphone to the call.

The FaceTime fix is included in the latest version of Apple's iOS 12 system, which became available to install Thursday. To make matters worse, if the person receiving the call pressed the power button to mute the ringing, their front-facing camera would turn on allowing the caller to see what was happening in the room. In the days following, it was discovered that the mother of U.S. teen Grant Thompson alerted the company a week before it took action; Apple is reportedly rewarding the family per its bug hunting policy. Cupertino blames the problem on "a logic issue.in the handling of Group FaceTime calls". A FaceTime security update is available for the Mac version of the video messaging app as well. While they were fixing the bug, they disabled Group FaceTime, so that the bug could not be abused.

These will download in the background and install overnight when the device is connected to mains power.
