Apple sued over FaceTime Group Calling bug

Another day, another lawsuit. Apple is being sued over the Group Calling exploit that allows a FaceTime video caller to hear the audio from a recipient’s iPhone without the call even being picked up.

Bloomberg reports that a Houston lawyer is suing the tech giant because his iPhone inadvertently allowed an unknown person to eavesdrop on his private conversation with a client. Larry Williams II said the incident happened while he was taking sworn testimony during a client deposition. 

Williams claims negligence, product liability, misrepresentation and warranty breach in his suit against Apple. He wants unspecified punitive damages, according to Bloomberg.
