Apple: iMessage ‘Privacy Bug’ is Not a Bug, Just One Employee’s Mistake

After receiving assistance from an Apple Genius at a retail store location, a customer began receiving texts that were sent to the employee’s iPhone. Gizmodo says the mishap is a bug, while Apple says the employee didn’t follow protocol.

The Loop reports:

To help the customer, who was using the iPhone without a SIM card, the Apple employee placed his SIM card into the phone. Unfortunately, the iPhone married itself to that number, so any texts sent to the phone were also sent to the customers phone.

It was like the perfect storm of circumstances. If the employee had of simply toggled the iMessage on and off, or if the customer had of put in a different SIM card, none of this would have happened.

“This was an extremely rare situation that occurred when a retail employee did not follow the correct service procedure and used their personal SIM to help a customer who did not have a working SIM,” said Apple representative Natalie Harrison. “This resulted in a temporary situation that has since been resolved by the employee.”
