Yesterday, Apple discovered a bug which allows users to hear callers’ voice even before they pick up the call. This has been happening via Apple’s FaceTime video chat service. The caller is not aware about this however, the receiver can hear him, even before the conversation starts on Facetime video chat. According to news sources, the bug uses FaceTime to put the user’s phone number and then, it adds the phone number of another person. The bug emerged on Data Privacy Day when Apple CEO, Tim Cook ordered “action and reform for vital privacy protections”.
Apple didn’t respond immediately after a question was put forth about this bug operating through the FaceTime feature. To recall, Apple had added FaceTime calling during the end of last year with the help of a software update that was partly designed to counter previous software bugs.
There is some news doing the rounds about other gadgets which Apple is going to launch soon. Apple is reportedly said to launch a new version of the iPad Mini known as the iPad Mini 5. Also, it is said to launch an entry level iPad very soon. As to how we can confirm their launch, both of them were registered in EEC.
The smaller iPads haven’t been updated for quite some time now and it seemed users had started to believe that Apple is done with this product. It is expected that the iPad Mini is going to sport a 7.9-inch display. To speak of the entry level iPad, it is going to be an advanced version of the previous iPad models. The previous iPad model reminds us of one very important device, that is the iPad 9.7-inch. The screen resolution of the device is 1,536×2,048 and it bears an aspect ratio of 4:3.
The device is powered by a Quad-core 2.34GHz CPU and comes with a 2GB RAM. The 2GB RAM brings two internal storage variants—32GB and 128GB. On the back side, there a camera of 8MP sensor and on the front, there is a 1.2MP sensor camera for click selfies.
All these devices have the Facetime functionality too, besides iPhones. The bug could very well be active in these devices too. No official word on an update is out to get rid of this bug.
