Science 27 Oct 2018 iOS 12.1 to introduce Group FaceTime dual-SIM support confirms Apple

Apple iOS 12.1 New features launch and more

iOS 12.1 will also bring new artist pages, a daily playlist of the top 100 songs around the world, and the ability to search by lyrics to Apple Music.

Further, iOS 12.1's launch marks the arrival of 70 new emoji, including characters with red hair, gray hair, curly hair and perhaps most importantly for us at MobileSyrup, bald people. It's a simple process really as you can download the update over the air like any other iOS release out there.

For the iPhone Xs debut last month, the eSIM features were not available yet, but they will be included in the iOS 12.1 update.

Apple's "iPhone User Guide" for iOS 12.1 is a free download from iTunes.

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.

Apple just announced that it will be rolling out its iOS 12.1 update, for the iPhone and the iPad, starting today.

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. The size of the person's image then changes depending on how active they are being on the call.

Group FaceTime is integrated into Messages, so you can initiate a group call from within that app.

With iOS 12.1, you can enjoy Group FaceTime with up to 32 people. One can tap a specific person's tile and bring them to center as well. Some specific additions to look forward to include a kangaroo, a mango, and a newly designed bagel.

In a statement, Apple said "advanced depth segmentation" in the device's portrait camera mode will also give users control over the depth of field in real-time preview, in addition to post-capture.

Dual SIM support for the latest iPhone lineup is also coming. 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.
