In practice, adding a participant, the system began to transmit the audio of the conversation partner before he could respond.
After the official apology, and the first complaint, the company from Cupertino has thanked the family that discovered the first bug, and The Verge reveals that you will be sent a sum of money as prize. This is not the first time Apple is offering a reward of kind (there is the "bug bounty program"), as they are normally provided for sums up to 200 thousand dollars to the researchers who discover vulnerabilities in the system's total population increase at the same Apple.

The student of Tucson (Arizona) was playing Fortnite and wanted to start a video chat on FaceTime with his friends, when he discovered, almost by chance, the bug. Apple has been slow to give feedback to the guy, taking action only 10 days after the first report.One of the most desired, 2018, topped only by the Mate 20 the Pro?
