Apple's iOS 12.1 software update should land tomorrow

iOS 12.1 is rolling out today, head into Settings General Software Update to grab it once it becomes available.

It's not actually clear when iOS 12.1 will land, but these features will definitely be in the mix. During a group call, Facetime will automatically detect the active participant and bring them to the forefront. The size of the person's image then changes depending on how active they are being on the call. Some of the notable feature include Dual Sim support, Group FaceTime and more.

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".

Messages integration: Group FaceTime is integrated into the Messages app, making it easy to start a Group FaceTime right from a group iMessage chat. It's a simple process really as you can download the update over the air like any other iOS release out there.

Apple has announced that its iOS 12.1 update will be released today.

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. The newest version brings Group FaceTime with up to 32 people simultaneously and over 70 new emoji to iPhones and iPads via iOS 12.1. Even though iPhone's Portrait mode still struggles to work accurately with curly hair, etc., I feel like this is probably the biggest feature for me in iOS 12.1.

"Available for free through Apple Books, the revised "iPhone User Guide for iOS 12.1" is largely unchanged from a previous version created for iOS 12", Apple Insider reported on Friday. Dual SIM support has been a standard feature on Android smartphones for years, but Apple has shown resistance towards it. It's likely not a feature the majority of iPhone users will take advantage of, but it's certainly exciting for users who need it.
