IOS 12.1 supports dual-SIM, group FaceTime, and stops ‘fixing’ selfies

iOS 12.1 Group FaceTime Compatibility: Will Your Device Support It? iOS 12.1 to bring Group FaceTime, dual-SIM support
Nina Mathis | 31 October, 2018, 09:42

Originally announced and beta tested as part of iOS 12.0, Group FaceTime saw a slight delay that pushed it back into iOS 12.1.

Apple has updated its iPhone User Guide, available for free from Apple Books, and it now includes details on the new features for iOS 12.1.

With iOS 12.1, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR gain Dual SIM support, featuring a nano-SIM and digital eSIM.

The iOS update also adds more than 70 new emoji, including bald, red, and curly-haired characters.

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. You'll then need to go into the Watch app on your iOS device, open Settings and General, then "Software Update".

"If people in a conversation have already started a FaceTime session, Messages shows the active call in the conversation list and inside your conversations", said Apple.




Although all devices supporting iOS 12.1 can perform audio calls using Group FaceTime, only the iPhone 6S and later offer support for group video calls.

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. To bring up the depth control slider inside Camera, tap the new "f" icon in the upper right corner, then adjust to your heart's content and see in real-time what the finished product will look like.

More than 70 new emoji have come to iPhone and iPad with iOS 12.1.

The three new iPhone models launched this year support dual SIM technology on an iPhone for the first time and will allow consumers to have two active connections. With iOS 12.1, users can now dynamically adjust the depth of field in real-time preview in addition to post-capture, enabling more control to create portraits with a attractive background blur.

Finally iOS 12.1 adds depth control for portrait mode shots while in the camera viewfinder (not only in the Photos app). This will enable consumers to use two sims without using a physical second sim.
