As always, you can find the iOS update by going to Settings followed by General and then selecting Software Update.
Speaking of the camera, iOS 12.1 will allow iPhone XS/XR owners to adjust the depth of field/bokeh in the live preview of a portrait shot.
First and foremost, iOS 12.1 will finally bring Group FaceTime to the iPhone.
The American tech giant said: "iOS 12.1 will be available Tuesday, October 30, bringing Group FaceTime and more than 70 new emoji to iPhone and iPad". Now with the iOS 12.1 update, the software has been upgraded to support eSIM functionality. FaceTime will automatically detect who the most prominent speakers are using "on-device intelligence".More news: Abe vows to bolster ties with China day before Beijing trip
Start Group FaceTime straight from a group Messages conversation or join an active call at any time. The size of the person's image then changes depending on how active they are being on the call.
The company's new firmware should hit any day now, and when it does iOS 12.1 will roll out Group FaceTime, which should support chats with up to 32 people. Hopefully, with the new update, this is fixed.
Apple has reportedly updated its "iPhone User Guide" for the upcoming release of iOS 12.1, indicating that the latest version of the mobile operating system (OS) will include Group FaceTime and dual-SIM support for its newly-launched iPhones. If people in a conversation have already started a FaceTime session, Messages shows the active call in the conversation list and inside your conversations.
iOS 12.1 brings dual SIM support, too.
While that might not apply to most people - since you probably only have one phone number you ever use - those who need to access two will be able to do so via a combination of a physical SIM card and an embedded SIM, or "eSIM", for the other.
