Apple's New iOS Releases Today With Group FaceTime & New Emojis

Asked if the second-largest U.S. carrier can activate service on Apple's eSIM card, a store manager disclosed that AT&T shops have been given guidelines by the mothership not to sell eSIM card options, as the carrier doesn't support Apple's new dual-SIM functionality.

Dual-SIM support Another key feature rolled out via iOS 12.1 update is the support for dual-eSIM cards.

Apple has confirmed a slew of features for its next software update, including a depth control feature through its camera app, and dual SIM support for its new iPhone range.

At last, we should also mention that, on iOS 12.1 iPhone flagships, dual-SIM requires a nano-SIM and an eSIM. Portrait mode with Depth Control is also available on the TrueDepth camera for selfies. In addition to all these new features, the software update is also expected to bring some performance improvements and bugfixes.

Group Facetime for up to 32 simultaneous participants, coming to iOS 12.1.




The latest Apple iPhone users have an option of one physical SIM and one eSIM as part of dual-SIM functionality, although as of now only Reliance Jio and Airtel are offering the eSIM option. Among the most annoying bugs that will probably be crushed by iOS 12.1 is the "beauty-gate" issue. The interesting thing about the new feature is the iPhone can track facial motion and automatically recognise them active speakers and brings to the forefront of the group chat.

Have you upgraded your iPhone or iPad to iOS 12.1 yet?

Start Group FaceTime straight from a group Messages conversation or join an active call at any time.

Alternatively, you can now start calls from a group Messages conversation. The participants who are not active appears at the bottom of the screen until they speak. The new emojis include red hair, gray hair and curly hair, an emoji for bald people, more emotive smiley faces. Apple's support page has also been updated with the same language. One can tap a specific person's tile and bring them to center as well.

Private: All FaceTime conversations, both one-to-one and multi-person, are encrypted end to end so they remain private and viewable only by the participants.
