Apple disables Walkie Talkie app over eavesdropping risks

Apple has disabled the Walkie-Talkie app on the Apple Watch due to a vulnerability that could unintentionally allow a user to listen through another user’s iPhone without consent. The Walkie-Talkie app allows people with Apple Watch to use their watches like a traditional walkie-talkie. The company apologized, saying it will work to resolve the issue quickly.
