Apple Rolls Out Fix for Group FaceTime Bug

Apple  rolled out a software update  Thursday that it says should fix a group FaceTime bug that let people eavesdrop on other users.  The flaw went viral  back in January  after people figured out they could hear or even see a person before they answered — or even if they didn't pick up — during a group FaceTime call.  Shortly after,  Apple apologized  and temporarily disabled group FaceTime while it worked out a fix.  The flaw was first discovered by a 14-year-old boy from Arizona.

Apple said Thursday that it would  compensate the teen's family  and also provide an additional gift to be put toward his education.
