Apple to Release iOS 12.1 update, will Support 32 way Video Chat and more

Apple has announced that the latest iOS 12.1 update will be rolling out starting today and the rollout might start any time. A couple of days earlier, Apple also released a free iOS 12.1 iPhone User Guide in the App Store for its users what clearly gives directions on how the new feature will be coming to the device and also how to use them. There is also a product event scheduled by the company to introduce its iPad Pro models along with its Pencil 2. Well, let us see what all new features are accompanied along with the update in detail.

Let’s start off with FaceTime, as the new update will be allowing its users to have a 32-way video chat and the prominent speakers on the chat can be seen at the forefront of the screen. Moreover, the size of every person image in the chat will be proportionate to the number of participants in the group. Sadly, the users with the older iPhone models like the iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE will just be able to use the Group FaceTime for audio calls only as they do not support the 32-way video chat.

The latest update from Apple will also bring 70 new emojis to its users and apart from these, there will be a new Depth Control feature that will be allowing the iOS users of the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR to adjust the depth-of-field in the real-time preview. The users can also adjust the bokeh blur even after the image has been taken giving its users the luxury of editing the image even after it is clicked.

Apart from these, the new 2018 iPhone models will be supporting Dual SIM capabilities after the iOS 12.1 has been installed on to their device. One being a Physical SIM card and another one embedded eSIM for the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR. Did any of you receive the update?
