Apple to contribute to US teen's education for spotting FaceTime bug
Updated : February 08, 2019 07:46 AM IST
The software bug, which had let users hear audio from people who had not yet answered a video call, was discovered by a Tucson, Arizona high school student Grant Thompson, who with his mother Michele led Apple to turn off FaceTime group chat as its engineers investigated the issue.
The technology giant said it would compensate the Thompson family and make an additional gift toward 14-year-old Grant's education.
Apple also formally credited Thompson and Daven Morris from Arlington, Texas in the release notes to its latest iPhone software update.
