WATCH: All the new updates from Apple's iOS 12.1
The first major point release of iOS 12 is expected to come with a number of new features and enhancements and will come ahead of the crucial holiday season starts in the U.S. Wondering when Apple will get around to releasing iOS 12.1 to the public though?
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.
This new version of iOS 12 brings Group FaceTime to the operating system, along with Messages integration and Ringless notifications.
With iOS 12 Apple insisted all its devices would be treated to a noticeable speed boost.
Additionally, one can start a group Facetime call directly from messages app. Apple also noted that all Facetime calls are protected by end-to-end encryption. The size of the person's image then changes depending on how active they are being on the call. You can set the amount of time you and your kids can spend each day on specific apps. Participants who are not active will appear at the bottom of the screen until they speak.
Apple will soon seed its latest iPhones with Dual-SIM functionality which will be possible through support for the miniature eSIM slot. eSIM support will thus turn the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR into dual-SIM phones, the first of its kind from Apple which will use the Dual SIM Dual Standby technology. A simple tap also brings a participant front and centre.
Are you looking forward to the final iOS 12.1 release?
The Cupertino-based firm went on: "Emoji are used by people all over the world to communicate and iOS 12.1 brings even more characters to the keyboard that better represent global users, including new emoji for moon cake, red gift envelope and nazar amulet".
