Update Now to Fix Group FaceTime on Your iPhone, iPad, and Mac

08 Февраля 2019

Apple has released an update for its flawed FaceTime video calling feature that allowed users to listen to and watch other callers through their devices, even if they didn't give their permission.

The FaceTime fix is included in the latest version of Apple's iOS 12 system, which became available to install Thursday.

All users had to do was make a call on FaceTime to their contact, and in the middle add their own number to convert this into a group conversation. The company had also disabled Group FaceTime to prevent anyone from misusing the flaw.

Two key US House of Representatives Democrats on Tuesday asked Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook to answer questions about the bug, saying they were "deeply troubled" over how long it took Apple to address the security flaw.

The update is about 335MB is size and you'll have to connect to a WiFi connection to download. Here's what's fixed and how to apply the updates. According to a report on The Verge, Apple will also be offering some compensation to the 14-year old who first discovered the bug.

It's not clear how much Apple will be paying the family, but it was previously confirmed that the discovery was eligible for Apple's bug bounty program, which offers rewards of up to $200,000 for security researchers who find vulnerabilities on Apple's software platforms. Grant also gets a namecheck in the iOS update's developer notes.

From this menu tap Software Update and check if any updates are ready for your device.

Alternatively, if you have Automatic Updates enabled (you can find this setting in Settings General Software Update), then you can just wait for it to automatically download and install.
