Apple recently comes under fire with the discovery of a bug that affects it FaceTime application. The glitch allows a FaceTime caller to hear and see the person they’re calling before they’ve even picked up or reject the call.
According to reports, this issue affects only those who uses the Group FaceTime feature on their devices. Apple is yet to fix the FaceTime bug, so while we’re waiting for an update from the tech giant, you might want to turn off the feature entirely in the mean time. Here’s how to do it:
For iOS device users:
- Open ‘Settings’ on your iPhone or iPad
- Scroll down and select FaceTime
- Switch the green button off at the top of the screen
For Mac users:
- Launch the FaceTime app
- Go to FaceTime on top of the screen
- Select “Turn FaceTime Off”
The glitch has already been isolated to the group call feature, as well as iPads and iPhones running iOS 12.1 and PCs using MacOS Mojave. However, it’s still a better precaution to disable FaceTime entirely on your Apple device until Apple has fixed the problem.
