IOS 12.1 to bring Group FaceTime, dual-SIM support

iOS 12.1 Group FaceTime Compatibility: Will Your Device Support It?

You can set the amount of time you and your kids can spend each day on specific apps. A few of my personal favorites include the new partying face, smiling face with hearts, cold face, and pleading face.

NEW YORK-Apple CEO Tim Cook concluded today's Apple news event by confirming the release of iOS 12.1 for all iOS devices. Fortunately for us all, they've refrained from highlighting the notch, hiding it by keeping the top area of the display solid black. The update enables the ability to make group video and audio calls on FaceTime with up to 32 people.

Messages integration: Group FaceTime is integrated into the Messages app, making it easy to start a Group FaceTime right from a group iMessage chat. Just navigate over to Settings General Software Update, and then your device will look for the update.

Alongside this, Cook also confirmed that iOS 12 now sits on a whopping 60% of all active iPhones and iPads.

Once it finds iOS 12.1, it will give you a brief description of the update and its size.

To make things even better, OnePlus 6T is equipped with a large 6.4-inches display that uses AMOLED technology. As per specs sheet, it comes with 128GB of internal storage without microSD card slot support for expansion.

Among the most annoying bugs that will probably be crushed by iOS 12.1 is the "beauty-gate" issue.

Explaining the new feature, Apple continued: "With iOS 12.1, FaceTime is more fun and flexible, with simple ways to add another person, join an active FaceTime call, or use the same camera effects available in Messages to add stickers, filters or appear to friends and family as an Animoji or Memoji". Even though iPhone's Portrait mode still struggles to work accurately with curly hair, etc., I feel like this is probably the biggest feature for me in iOS 12.1.

New animals are also being added, so if you've been waiting for a lobster, parrot, or peacock, you will soon be in luck.

Prior to the iOS 12.1, the newly launched iPhone XS, XS Max and the XR came with Depth Control feature, but the user could only use it after taking the photo.

Apple today released iOS 12.1, tvOS 12.1, macOS 10.14.1 and watchOS 5.1. As first reported by Nilay Patel of The Verge, a tweak to Smart HDR should result in more natural-looking selfies going forward.
