Lately, Apple had taken down the Group FaceTime feature due to the discovery of a spy bug in it. The bug allowed the FaceTime caller to listen to the conversation on the other side even if the user on the other end doesn’t pick up the call. Good news is that Apple has released iOS 12.1.4 with the critical FaceTime bug patch fix for iPhone/iPad devices. You can now download iOS 12.1.4 IPSW links and OTA update on your iOS device. Please note that in iOS 12.1.3 and below versions, Group FaceTime will no longer remain functional. Therefore, if you want to use Group FaceTime, you require updating your iOS version to 12.1.4.
