About two weeks ago, I published an article with the title of Apple iPhone Allows Anyone to Eavesdrop on Your Conversations Without Your Knowledge. That bug had to be very embarrassing for Apple which had heavily promoted advertisements claiming that “what happens on your iPhone, stays on your iPhone.”
Apple did not waste much time in getting the problem fixed and is now rolling out the fix to all iPhone users.
The original problem was first discovered by 14-year-old Grant Thompson. His mother promptly reported the bug to Apple.
Apple has now done “the right thing.” The company said it would pay the Thompson family for reporting the bug and will also make a gift toward Grant’s education. Apple did not say how much it would give.
