Latest iOS update causes random FaceTime calls in the UK and other parts of the world.
If you thought iPhone 4 had settled down with its erroneous behaviors and hardware issues, well, here is a new one. After the iOS 4.2.1 update, many users have complained that their contacts received FaceTime calls from their phone without actually having placed them, probably because they were fast asleep.
A thread on the Apple’s discussion board have at least 40 iPhone 4 users complaining of randomly placed calls after they updated to iOS 4.2.1. A major round of false FaceTime calls went out in the United Kingdom from 2AM to 2:30AM, causing annoyance and concern among people.
The problem wasn’t restricted to the UK alone, interestingly false FaceTime calls were also placed in other parts of the world at the exact same time. A user mapped it all, “It does seem to be the same time across the world, 6:30pm LA, 9:30pm NY, 2:30am London, 3:30am Europe. What was Apple doing?”
It is unclear if this was a glitch from Apple’s servers or if its a bug from the iOS 4.2.1 update.
