Apple has also wholly audited FaceTime, which uncovered another bug in the Live Photos feature of FaceTime which has also been fixed.

A week and some days are not an inadequate response for Apple to find, fix and test a bug of this importance. The Cupertino based company likely retested multiple times to ensure that no other issues may arise at the same time.

It’s also good news for the 14-year old Fortnight player that found the bug initially, and Apple says that it will be compensating the teenager user its bug bounty program. The payout will also include an unspecified additional gift towards the teenager’s education.

So in case you are thinking of using the comments section with a word like “Do i need to update?” Of course, you do. To download the update: head to the Settings app on your iOS device, go to General and then Software Update. As with all updates regarding risks, the risk of you not upgrading will be profoundly greater.

Apple drew some congressional ire over this bug, with two members of Congress sending a pointed letter to CEO Tim Cook questioning him over things like when Apple first learned about the problem, if it ever knew of any other unannounced bugs, and the impact the flaw had.

Let’s know our reaction about this by dropping them using the comments section below.
