Apple disables Walkie-Talkie on Watch due to eavesdropping bug

TwitterFacebook

Apple has disabled its Walkie-Talkie app for the Apple Watch due to a security flaw that could allow someone to listen in on a user’s iPhone call.

TechCrunch reported the vulnerability Thursday, with a statement from Apple saying the company is working to “quickly fix the issue.”

Apple says it was not aware of anyone actually exploiting this vulnerability, but decided the bug was so serious that disabling the Walkie Talkie app was the “right course of action.”

“This bug could allow someone to listen through another customer’s iPhone without consent,” Apple said.
