Contributes to the boy's education.

 

Apple has no plans to leave the 14-year-old who discovered the critical FaceTime error out of it all, now they promise to pay for the boy's education.

 

Included in the notes
Last week, Apple received a lot of unwanted attention to have a very unfortunate FaceTime bug that allowed you to hear the person on the opposite end despite the fact that he hadn't picked up the phone.

 

Apple fixed the error pretty fast but posted an update to fix it yesterday, in the iOS 12.1.4 update. In the patch notes for this update, they thanked the boy by writing "CVE-2019-6223: Grant Thompson of Catalina Foothills High School".

 

Paying for schooling
In addition, the company has stated that they will make a donation to go to Thompson's education, as well as to compensate the family. Exactly how much this amount sounds is uncertain, but Apple launched a "bug bounty" program in 2016, paying out between $ 25,000 and $ 200,000 for reported errors.

 

Apple managed to get itself sued over the FaceTime scandal, but that's corrected in iOS 14.1.4 that comes with more bug fixes. The update can be downloaded on the iPhone 5S and above, iPad Air and later as well as the iPod Touch 6. gen.
