Another day, another lawsuit. Well, another one soon anyway. The Montreal, Canada law firm of Lambert Avocat has started an application to be authorized to bring a class action suit against Apple.
The potential lawsuit involves 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. Apple is supposed to release a patch to fix this issue this week.
Lambert Avocat’s application seeks to obtain a compensation for privacy violations for all persons who own an Apple product, including an iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, iPod, and/or MacBook operating on an iOS system of 12.1 or more recent, and who used the FaceTime app.
