iPhone ‘FaceTime Glitch’ Is Not True, April Fool’s Joke

Posted on April 6, 2011 by

Many sites are reporting today that FaceTime has a glitch and is randomly taking pictures even when you are not using it. It was first reported by someone on Apple Discussions saying:

My boyfriend and I have both recently experienced this problem several times – when one of us is calling the other via FaceTime, an old picture freezes on our screen, while the person receiving the call only sees a black screen. It’s kind of creepy, because it brought up photos of both of us at work, where I have used FaceTime a few times but he never has.

That post was followed by others with similar issues, all which are obviously fake to anyone with a brain. Does anyone actually believe that iPhones are randomly talking pictures while you’re not using them and storing the pictures somewhere hidden, only to show up when you start a FaceTime call? It’s much easier to believe that someone, or a few people, created some accounts on Apple Discussions and decided to pull a prank by coming up with these crazy stories.

    Of course it doesnt take pictures of you when you dont know but it is true that sometimes when you are trying to facetime with someone there is a picture on it of you from your last facetime call. This  is actually happing to me right now.

    Yeah, it’s crazy how many people believed the random people on Apple Discussions. The media was having so much fun with it, reporting that Apple was spying on users instead of just using common sense and debunking the claims. I wrote a little more about it here if you’re interested. http://www.macdaddynews.com/2011/04/10/a-look-into-the-iphone-facetime-glitch-claims/
