Apple Says No to App Developers

Apple Says, No Permission-No Recording So the big news the last few days has been apps that have been recording your screen actions without your permission.

When the third person, and any additional people, were being added to the GFT call, their phones would connect BEFORE the person accepted the call! Which meant audio and sometimes video started before the receiving person knew the call was connected. … Continue reading Group FaceTime Disabled
