The bug enables a caller to access audio from the recipient’s side without the recipient getting the call. This has emerged as a concern as the bug allows the caller to listen to the audio from the recipient’s side without the latter being aware of it. The bug is also a potential threat to user privacy.
Apple has said that it's aware of the bug and has already identified a fix that will be released in a software update later this week.
