Apple's New iOS Releases Today With Group FaceTime & New Emojis

Explaining the new feature, Apple continued: "With iOS 12.1, FaceTime is more fun and flexible, with simple ways to add another person, join an active FaceTime call, or use the same camera effects available in Messages to add stickers, filters or appear to friends and family as an Animoji or Memoji".

Originally announced and beta tested as part of iOS 12.0, Group FaceTime saw a slight delay that pushed it back into iOS 12.1.

This feature, which made headlines through the end of 2017 and well into 2018, uses an algorithm to reduce the performance of an aging iPhone to protect the electrical components inside and prevent the device from prematurely shutting down.

The new iPhone X series-the XS, XS Max, and XR-are the first iPhones to ship with dual SIM tech capabilities.

The new emoji include red, gray and curly haired characters, "more emotive" smiley faces, and a range of new animals, sports and food.

The iOS 12 brings a smart manager that's built-in - iCloud Keychain, which lets you opt for a stronger unique password every time you sign up for a new service (suggested by the program), and syncs across all your Apple devices.

But some of the old faces are still there and it will be good to catch up with them. It's Aberdeen again and it's a tough game.

"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 2 to 32 people". Users can now adjust the depth of field while they're framing the shot in addition to post-capture adjustments. Once a Portrait photo is saved in your library, this depth control feature can be accessed from Photos' edit mode.

Apple Watch owners can also install watchOS 5.1 today, which brings Group FaceTime audio calls, new emoji, and a new full-screen "Color" watch face.

Essentially, Smart HDR was choosing the wrong base frame for HDR processing when you took a selfie. These are also available on the latest macOS and watchOS update also. The result is a loss of detail that looks like smoothing on the front camera. After updating their device users can activate an additional cellular connection from a supported telecom network provider via the eSIM facility.

With iOS 12.1, the newly launched iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR gain Dual SIM support.

First, jump into the Settings menu.
