Apple turned off the "Walkie-talkie" on a Smart Watch due to Serious Vulnerability
Apple has unexpectedly disabled the Walkie Talkie application in Apple Watch. The reason is a previously unknown critical vulnerability that could allow listening to someone else's iPhone without the knowledge of its owner, writes TechCrunch.

The company apologizes for the misunderstanding and inability to use the function during the correction of the error code:
“We just learned about the Apple Watch Walkie-Talkie vulnerability and turned off this feature because they are busy fixing the error. We apologize to our customers for the inconvenience and restore the radio to its operability as soon as possible.

Although we are not aware of any exploitation of this vulnerability in relation to a client, and its use requires specific conditions and sequence of events, we take the security and confidentiality of our clients very seriously.

We concluded that disabling an application is the right course of action, since this error may allow someone to listen on another client's iPhone and citizen without their consent. We again apologize for this problem and inconvenience ", - the press service of Apple.
The Walkie Talkie application will remain installed on the watch with watchOS 5, but will not work until the vulnerability fix is ​​released. How soon it will happen is unknown, we will follow the news of Apple.
