Communication tools have become more important than ever, where due to the coronavirus outbreak, people are being forced to self-isolate where they are now working and studying from home. This means that being able to chat with your friends and loved ones is crucial, especially in maintaining your mental health.
Given that a lot of us are now being forced to work and study from home away from our friends and even family, it means that communication tools like video conferencing apps are more important than ever as a means to keep in touch with our loved ones. If you have been largely relying on FaceTime, you might want to skip the latest iOS update.
One of the problems with the majority of video conferencing devices is that because the lens is located above the display, most of the time, it ends up like we are looking down and not into the eyes of the person we’re doing the video conference with. That’s a problem that Apple is attempting to solve with iOS 13.
A couple of weeks ago it was discovered that Apple’s Group FaceTime feature had a bug which allowed other users to listen in on a call that was still not answered. Apple has since released an update for iOS that seems to have patched the issue, but unfortunately for FaceTime users, it seems that the feature is still a bit buggy.
Bugs are common in software. Sometimes they are relatively harmless, but sometimes they can be huge. A recent example would be Apple’s FaceTime bug where the caller can listen in on the person they’re calling while making a FaceTime call, and that person would not even need to pick up their device, scary isn’t it?
As you might have heard, there was a recent discovery of a particularly severe FaceTime bug which allowed the caller to listen in on the person they were calling without that person having to answer the call. Apple has since disabled the Group FaceTime feature while they work on a fix, and have since issued an apology.
Recently there was a report about a Group FaceTime bug that allowed users to listen in on others without their knowledge. Apple has since temporarily disabled the feature, but unfortunately that is not enough because in a report from Bloomberg, Apple has since been hit with its first lawsuit over the issue.
A recent report revealed a disturbing bug with Apple’s Group FaceTime feature where it basically allowed a caller to listen in on the other person without their knowledge. This has been making the headlines in the past few days, but as it turns out that this bug was actually reported to Apple more than a week ago.
Recently there was a bug that was revealed online in which it allowed an iOS user to make a FaceTime call to another user and listen in on them without them having to answer the call. Apple is said to be currently working on a fix, but in the meantime the company has temporarily disabled Group FaceTime while they work on it.
Apple’s FaceTime service has been around for years and for the most part, it has been used without incident. However in recent times, there was a report of a FaceTime bug that allowed a caller to listen in on the person they’re calling without them needing to answer the call! This is scary and worrying, but until a permanent fix has been issued, perhaps turning off FaceTime completely might be […]
How phone calls work is that usually you can only hear the other person when they answer the phone. Unfortunately there seems to be some kind of weird bug going around that has affected Apple’s FaceTime service, where it seems that the caller can actually tap into the microphone of the person they’re calling to hear them.
Several years ago, there was a car crash which resulted in the death of a 5-year old girl. The driver who caused the crash was found to be distracted at that time due to him making a FaceTime. The parents of the girl extended the blame to Apple and sued them for allowing FaceTime to be used while driving.
One of the new features Apple introduced in the latest update to iOS and macOS is group FaceTime calls. This is a long overdue feature that has been promised for years, and is finally available. However we imagine that like with most group video/audio chats, this can get messy when multiple people talk at once.
Some of the features that Apple announced earlier this year that would be making its way onto iOS devices was group FaceTime and also dual SIM support for its new iPhones. However neither of these features were launched with the release of iOS 12 and also with the release of the new iPhones.
