On January 28th, 2019, a major security bug was discovered in Apple products when using the Facetime application, letting callers listen, and in some cases, even see what is happening at the other end, before the person accepts or rejects the incoming call.
On January 29th, 2019, our firm started an application to be authorized to bring a class action against Apple.
This 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 application.
On October 9th, 2019, the Court authorized the discontinuance of the legal proceedings for the following reasons:
- On February 7th, 2019, Apple corrected the security bugs related to FaceTime application via iOS 12.1.4;
- There is no tangible prejudice that could be compensated;
