Apple Disables App Over Eavesdropping Concerns


Apple is disabling the Apple Watch Walkie Talkie app because it might be vulnerable to eavesdropping. Apple said Wednesday night it has disabled the app while it develops a fix. The tech giant apologized to customers for the bug and the inconvenience of not being able to use the feature until it’s fixed. In a statement announcing the problem and its pledge to fix it, Apple said it isn’t aware of any instances of people listening in on walkie talkie conversations.
