Apple Fixed the FaceTime Flaw, but Questions Remain

Group FaceTime remains permanently disabled in the earlier versions of iOS that could run it, back to iOS 12.1, though the Group FaceTime servers have been re-enabled.

A FaceTime security update is available for the Mac version of the video messaging app as well. The iPhone maker had also notified users about the unavailability of the feature through the system status page on its website.

And that patch is ready with Apple confirming that an update is available for iOS 12 right now.

So if your phone seems sluggish after iOS 12.1.3 upgrade and if you wish to downgrade back to a lower version, it seems you simply can not as Apple has blocked it.

Thompson figured out that he could essentially force a call to connect to a selected device by simply attempting to Group FaceTime call another person before the first had answered.

Apple has released an iPhone update to fix the flaw.

All iOS users should install the security update on their phone, given that it fixes a major privacy flaw in the FaceTime app from Apple.

Apple takes all of its security incredibly seriously with the firm temporarily making Group FaceTime unavailable whilst they worked on a fix. This one exploited a previously unknown issue with Live Photos.

The company also says they uncovered another flaw during a "thorough security audit of the FaceTime service".

The iOS 12.1.4 update is compatible with all the iPhone and iPad models running iOS 12. You will need Wi-Fi access and your battery to be charged above 50 percent, or the device will need to be connected to a charger.

From this menu tap Software Update and check if any updates are ready for your device. Grant also gets a namecheck in the iOS update's developer notes.
