Here’s What’s New in iOS 12.1, Available Today

iOS 12.1 Group FaceTime Compatibility: Will Your Device Support It? iOS 12.1 to bring Group FaceTime, dual-SIM support

It allows users to conduct FaceTime video conference calls with up to 32 participants.

Apple has a great support page for getting started with this feature, so be sure to check it out if you're looking to use two numbers on one device and with a supported carrier.

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. It automatically sizes each person's image depending upon how active they are in the conversation, based on duration of speech, volume and even motion.

Participants who are not active will appear at the bottom of the screen until they talk. A simple tap also brings a participant front and center.

Apple will also be adding new emojis in the update.

Having a conversation with that many people involved sounds like a management nightmare, but Apple came up with a few ways to keep things running smoothly. When calling more than one person, FaceTime will show a notification that'll let you instantly join a call without being distruptive, and Apple also says that all FaceTime calls are end-to-end encrypted so that they remain private.

In the Axios interview, Trump incorrectly asserted that the United States is the only country that offers birthright citizenship. However, White House lawyers expect to work with the Justice Department to develop a legal justification for the action.


When initiating a new group call, the FaceTime app enables adding multiple contacts at once then choosing whether to start an audio or video call.

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

It also fixes the charging woes of some devices and brings an end to the soft selfies that were coming out of new iPhone XS, XS Max and XR units.

Additionally, the update turns on dual SIM support for the aforementioned models as well as the iPhone XR. Once a Portrait photo is saved in your library, this depth control feature can be accessed from Photos' edit mode. Instead of actual dual physical SIMs, dual SIM support for the iPhone requires the use of a digital eSIM which is widely supported by United States operators but not in Malaysia.

iOS 12.1 is available from Tuesday, October 30 for the iPhone (from iPhone 5S and later), the iPad (from iPad mini 2 and later) and even the 6 generation iPod touch. The new cameras on the iPhone Xs allow users to control the depth for Portrait mode pictures after taking the pictures - but with iOS 12.1, you will be able to control the depth of field in real-time when taking pictures, as well as after taking the shot.
