Apple releases iOS 12.1.4 with fix for Group FaceTime exploit

Apple has released iOS 12.1.4, which offers a fix for the Group FaceTime glitch discovered last week.

The exploit lets iPhones users listen to conversations of others who haven’t yet accepted a video call. Here’s how it works: the caller starts a FaceTime video call with a contact. While the call is “ringing,” the caller adds themselves manually to the call by tapping Add Person then entering the phone number that the call is being made from. A Group FaceTime call is started with the caller, with the original recipient’s audio streaming before the call is accepted.
