Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Apple has finally woven an update this mfox that scary, lurking glitch that invaded Group FaceTime a couple of weeks ago.
The software updates — iOS 12.1.4 and macOS Mojave 10.14.3 – are ready to be installed and downloaded in your Settings App on your iOS devices or in the App Store on your Mac.
Apple issued this statement:
“Today’s software update fixes the security bug in Group FaceTime. We again apologize to our customers and we thank them for their patience,” an Apple spokesperson said in a statement. “In addition to addressing the bug that was reported, our team conducted a thorough security audit of the FaceTime service and made additional updates to both the FaceTime app and server to improve security” Via CNN.Com
To install the software updates on iOS devices, go to Settings -> General -> Software Updates and tap “Download and Install.” On a Mac, open the App Store and go to the Updates section.
And if you disabled FaceTime, you’ll have to turn it back on in Settings to resume using the feature.
So, all is safe now. No more eavesdropping! FaceTime is now open for business.

Well, folks, another year, another World Wide Developer Conference in the very near horizon. But, as much I love these Apple get – togethers, I am beyond “bummed” that the anticipated redo of the Apple TV unit is quite possibly cancelled. Yes, cancelled. Again.
Because television content providers aka the TV Networks are making life a living hell for Apple and its consumers. Boy, is this story ever getting old and annoying. When will the networks release themselves from the dinosaur age and embrace all that technology can offer its consumer?
One answer: Money. It makes the world go round. Just not ours. Read the rest of this entry

Okay, let’s try this again, shall we?
A couple of days ago, Apple released iOS 8.0.1 to “fix” the bugs that crashed the party known as iOS 8.0.
Well, it appears that the iOS 8.0.1 was a regifter or something because chaos reigned the day when Apple consumers downloaded the software.
Owners of the newly released iPhone 6 and 6 Plus discovered that, after downloading iOS 8.0.1, their phone couldn’t connect to their Cellular Service and Touch ID was disabled. Good times.
