Apple is today releasing iOS 12.1.4 to iPhones this evening. The company’s latest update to iOS includes a critical fix for a serious FaceTime bug that appeared earlier this month.
A bug in FaceTime allowed the person calling someone else on FaceTime to accept the call, letting them hear the recipient’s microphone before the call was even picked up. The bug was a problem with Group FaceTime, a feature Apple launched with iOS 12.
The company was quick to remotely disable Group FaceTime, though that completely disabled the Group FaceTime feature. Today’s patch completely fixes the issue, meaning you can once again make Group FaceTime calls without having to worry about this bug.
