US company Apple has given its beta version to developers for testing before launching its new operating system iOS 14.
In the process, users have noticed that Instagram is constantly accessing their camera.
Following the news, Instagram acknowledged that its app was using a camera, but claimed that there was a “bug” that it would fix in a new app update.
Instagram says we only get access to your camera when you tell us we’ve found a bug in iOS that will be fixed soon.
