iOS 12.1 brings Group FaceTime and new emoji to iPhone and iPad
iOS 12.1 is available starting today, October 30, bringing Group FaceTime and more than 70 new emoji to iPhone and iPad.
According to Apple’s official website, new features include:
- Group FaceTime – the ability to chat from 2 to 32 people simultaneously. FaceTime also became smarter. It uses on-device intelligence to display the most prominent speakers on the call and automatically sizes each person’s image depending upon how active they are in the conversation. There are even more updates to the app, including ringless notification, integration with the Messages app, and some privacy improvements.
- More than 70 new emoji characters for iPhone and iPad. They will also be available on Apple Watch and Mac with a free software update.
- Depth Control in real-time preview – 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 background blur.
- Dual SIM support to iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR customers.
