Apple has just released iOS 12.1.4 with a serious security patch on the FaceTime Group application that was announced late last month.
At the end of last month, the technology discovered a serious security error on Group FaceTime application when it automatically allowed someone to eavesdrop on the sound obtained from the called device without the listeners agreeing to answer.
Given the high risk of possible consequences, Apple has temporarily removed the FaceTime Group application in the past. But from today, users can reuse this application on iOS version 12.1.4. Apple has also released an official statement on this issue:
