Apple Is Compensating The Kid Who Discovered FaceTime Bug
Apple has said it will pay the teen who found the Group FaceTime bug that let you tune in on somebody before they addressed a call. Concede Thompson, a 14-year-old secondary school understudy from Tucson, Arizona, found the blemish around about fourteen days prior while setting up a gathering talk with companions playing Fortnite. 

His mom Michele Thompson said she over and over attempted to contact Apple about the issue through email and online networking without any result. The organization connected with her seven days prior, when news of the bug had circulated around the web on the web, so, all in all, it had taken Group FaceTime offline.

Apple issued a fix for the FaceTime bug just hours ago in its iOS 12.1.4 security update. which Apple says "provides important security updates and is recommended for all users."

"To protect customers who have not yet upgraded to the latest software, we have updated our servers to block the Live Photos feature of FaceTime for older versions of iOS and macOS," said Apple.

Apple assures that it will compensate the Thompson family. Payment details are not confirmed that but it seems that Apple does offer up to $200,000 in cash bounties as part of its bug bounty program.
