Here's how to make a Group FaceTime call in iOS 12.1

Here's how to make a Group FaceTime call in iOS 12.1

Other new features include ringless notification, which lets you join calls without disrupting the conversation with rings, and the integration of FaceTime into the Messages app. FaceTime also becomes more secure with the addition of end-to-end encryption for both one-to-one chats and group chats. 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).

Additionally, Apple Watch, Apple TV, and Mac software updates are also expected in order to keep up with iOS.

Dual-SIM support Another key feature rolled out via iOS 12.1 update is the support for dual-eSIM cards. Also, it is recommended to back up your data, and ensuring your device has over 50 percent of charge or connected to a power source before beginning the update process. As 9to5Mac notes though, and most likely owing to hardware restrictions, not every Apple device will get to share in the face-sharing glory - the iPad mini 2, mini 3, and iPad Air are all being left out in the cold.

When initiating a new group call, the FaceTime app enables adding multiple contacts at once then choosing whether to start an audio or video call.

Cardiff executive director and chief executive Ken Choo was respectful of Leicester's wishes and offered his sympathies. The Foxes confirmed the book will remain open for 14 hours every day "for the foreseeable future".

FaceTime uses on-device intelligence to display the most prominent speakers on the call, automatically highlighting the current speaker by bringing them to the forefront. A simple tap also brings a participant front and centre. It also adds more characters to the keyboard that will better represent global users, including new emoji for moon cake, red gift envelope and Nazar amulet.

"This update also includes bug fixes and improvements", said Apple.

Encrypted end to end so your conversations remain private.

"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. Users will now be able to adjust the depth of field in an image after clicking the photo, in the real-time preview. After updating their device users can activate an additional cellular connection from a supported telecom network provider via the eSIM facility.
