Apple has fixed a bug that let iPhone users see and hear others before they accept FaceTime calls and will roll out a software update next week.
With the sofwtare release, Apple will re-enable Group FaceTime, it said on Friday.
The bug fix was initially supposed to arrive this week, according to a statement the company gave on Monday.
In a statement, Apple now says it is “committed to improving” how it deals with bug reports in the future. The company is also thanking by name the family of the teenager who first found and reported the bug, only to be unable to get the company’s attention. Apple also apologized to customers and says it is “committed to continuing to earn the trust Apple customers.”
Meanwhile, the state of New York is probing Apple’s failure to warn consumers about the bug, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Wednesday.
