Apple will patch FaceTime video calling bug by this week

The bug allows an iPhone user placing a video call using Apple’s FaceTime video calling feature to hear background audio from the recipient’s phone even if the recipient has not yet picked up the call. Apparently, the bug relies on Apple’s group video calling feature.

Apple has stated, it will issue a software patch later this week which irons out a bug that allows iPhone users to hear audio from users who have not yet accepted a video call.

The bug allows an iPhone user placing a video call using Apple’s FaceTime video calling feature to hear background audio from the recipient’s phone even if the recipient has not yet picked up the call. Apparently, the bug relies on Apple’s group video calling feature.

Last summer Apple had announced its FaceTime video calling feature but removed it from early test versions of its iOS 12 operating system and launched it in late October.

“We’re aware of this issue and we have identified a fix that will be released in a software update later this week,” said Apple’s spokesperson in a statement.
