iOS 12.1 coming October 30th with group FaceTime, dual-SIM support, and ‘beautygate’ fix

Apple announced that tomorrow iOS 12.1 will be released ahead of its big iPad Pro and Mac events. It is the first major update to iOS 12 and includes the Group FaceTime feature removed from the initial release. Group FaceTime supports video chatting with up to 32 people at the same time and supports stickers, video filters and Animoji / Memoji. This feature has been disabled in iOS 12.0 but is now ready for use. Each person's video bubble gets bigger when you talk.

iOS 12.1 adds dual SIM support to iPhone XS and XR, allowing you to run two lines on the same phone. One line uses the actual SIM card and the other line works through eSIM technology. (Apple has created a useful tutorial for using dual SIM features.)

Group FaceTime and dual SIM support are the biggest new features of iOS 12.1.

Apple does not mention it in the press release. However, in the past, The Verge confirmed that iOS 12.1 should fix the "beautygate" issue of iPhone XS and XR. Shortly after the XS was released, users began complaining about the skin feeling gentle on the self-portrait. Because Apple chose the wrong shot as the default "smart HDR" frame, Apple actually became aware of the current situation as a bug.

With iOS 12.1, iPhone users who support portrait mode can adjust the depth of field / bokeh in the shooting preview as well as after shooting .

And finally, as usual, Apple includes new emojis in the update. Over 70 controversial bagel emoticons add red hair, gray hair, curly hair, new emoticons for bald people, emotional smiles, animals, sports and emoticons to represent food. "

Using iOS 12, Apple will focus on improving performance and speed up the speed between supported iPhones and iPads." This new emoticon will allow users to watch OS and macOS through software updates for their platform. Has been acclaimed by users, and iOS 12.1 has been enhanced with multi-person video chat, the flexibility of dual SIM, and the fixed self-features of the latest smartphones.
