A week and a half it took Apple tothe release of an update that resolves the FaceTime problem. At the end of January, when calling in this application, the microphone in the second gadget was activated before answering an incoming call. This made it possible to eavesdrop on other people's conversations. And when you press the power button, the front camera of the unsuspecting “espionage victim” was activated.
Once this bug was revealed, Applehas blocked group calls to facetime. They made it possible to eavesdrop and peep at people. Now, the latest version of the mobile operating system 12.1.4 and macOS Mojave 10.14.3 for PC has appeared in iOS. According to the developers, they completely eliminated this problem.
