Is your iPhone taking pictures without your permission?

The Apple forum thread has generated three pages of users sharing this complaint: while on Facetime a random picture appears, that the iPhone seems to have captured on his own. If you search for it, you won't find it in the Camera Roll and this issue seems hard to reproduce due to the random occurrence.

Here is a description of this issue:

“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.”

Although it sounds unlikely, could your iPhone be spying on you? We wouldn't want to go into any conspiracy theories, but we would love to hear more about this, Have any of you experience such thing? Let us know in the comments below!
