All the new updates from Apple's iOS 12.1

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

iOS 12.1 will also roll out dual SIM support for more recent iPhone models, meaning you'll be able to manage two different numbers on a single device... which doesn't sound at all shifty.

With that, we get confirmation that the anticipated Group FaceTime feature is ready to go, after it was announced as an iOS 12 feature and then subsequently removed. The update enables the ability to make group video and audio calls on FaceTime with up to 32 people.

You can check out the full set of features here.

The iOS 12 makes the older phones like the iPhone 6+ and iPad Air much faster: 40 per cent faster app launches, 50 per cent faster keyboard opening, and nearly 70 per cent improvement in opening the camera, according to Apple.

As always, you can find the iOS update by going to Settings followed by General and then selecting Software Update. It is expected to bring Group FaceTime and new emoji, as well as Depth Control in Camera Preview, and Dual SIM Support for the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR. There are also additional enhancements built into FaceTime with the new update like automatic detection of active speakers which, ringless notification and messages integration. The size of the person's image then changes depending on how active they are being on the call. A simple tap also brings a participant front and center.

The feature integrates with iMessage as well, meaning you can easily call your iMessage group from the Messages app anytime you want, and members can join at any time, even after the call has started.

The latest version of Apple's iPhone and iPad operating system, iOS 12, is out.

See how the depth control works in the video below.

iOS 12.1 will come with more than 70 new emojis including new characters with red hair, gray hair and curly hair, a new emoji for bald people.

eSIM support will thus turn the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR into dual-SIM phones, the first of its kind from Apple. In addition to the built-in physical SIM, as of iOS 12.1 you can add a second line to your phone via an eSIM.
