Apple confirms iOS 12.1 shipping today with 32-person Group Facetime

FaceTime changed the way people communicate and share important moments and "now with Group FaceTime, it's easy to chat with more people than ever before, from two to 32 people", Apple said in a statement late Monday.

FaceTime in iOS 12.1 finally gets the "group" aspect that Apple teased when initially announcing iOS 12.

However, it might not be clear how to use the new feature, so here's a breakdown of how to do Group FaceTime. Here's how you can enable dual-SIM on your iPhone XS, XS Max and iPhone XR if you are on Airtel (first reported by FoneArena).

Emoji lovers can also rejoice as the Cupertino company is introducing 70 emojis through this update including a freezing face, a pleading face, lettuce, cupcakes, and an infinity symbol. There's a good handful of older iPhones and iPads that, while they are able to run iOS 12, won't support video for Group FaceTime - instead they'll be limited to audio-only on these calls. Simply hit the '.' button near the bottom of the screen, then tap "Add Person" and search to find the person you want to add.

If you use an iPhone, then you might be interested to know that Apple's latest version of iOS has been parceled up and delivered neatly to your little slab of glass and metal.

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. Once a Portrait photo is saved in your library, this depth control feature can be accessed from Photos' edit mode.

Essentially, Smart HDR was choosing the wrong base frame for HDR processing when you took a selfie. It's also worth mentioning that this isn't yet available on Verizon-more info on that here. The result is a loss of detail that looks like smoothing on the front camera. And it's fixed now. Users can now activate an additional cellular plan from a carrier without having to use a physical nano-SIM.

Promises, promises. While not explicitly denying support for Apple's newly-minted eSIM and dual-SIM iPhone XR, XS and XS Max functionality, the likes of Verizon and T-Mobile have only issued vague statements that it is coming at a later date.
