Glitch allows iPhone to take photos of users

A glitch has turned up on the iPhone 4 and for some owners it would seem that it is not too funny, for their devices have been taking images and displaying them during FaceTime calls! According to some users of the device, this seems to be a random act by the phone and seems to be just a little creepy to some people!

“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. We’re just wondering how/why this is happening, and if there is a fix. It’s not terribly inconvenient, but it’s definitely unsettling, where is seems that even if we haven’t taken a picture or used FaceTime, the camera is keeping images.”

“I have a dashboard mount for my phone. I had left the phone in the car when I ran in to get my sandwich. This was at a strip mall that I had never visited before and never connected to any Wi-Fi. I parked in the middle of the lot, about 75ft from the doors to Subway. Ran it, got my food, hopped back in the car. I hit the button to see if anyone called me (no one did) and drove off. After I got in to where I was working and ate my sandwich, I tried to use FaceTime and saw a frozen image of me in the car from 20-30 minutes prior!”

It seems that Apple are not too fussed about this, probably because it seems to be only affecting a small amount of users, so far! Apple customer support has suggested restoring the device to the factory settings.
