With this, users will be able to conduct FaceTime video calls with up to 32 participants. When an invitation is received, people can choose to join using audio or video from iPhone, iPad and Mac. Even though iPhone's Portrait mode still struggles to work accurately with curly hair, etc., I feel like this is probably the biggest feature for me in iOS 12.1.

FaceTime will now include the automatic detection of active speakers, displaying also the most prominent speakers on the call as priority. Chief among these is the introduction of Group FaceTime, however there are a few caveats.

Do you love emoji?

Apple will soon seed its latest iPhones with Dual-SIM functionality which will be possible through support for the miniature eSIM slot. eSIM support will thus turn the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR into dual-SIM phones, the first of its kind from Apple which will use the Dual SIM Dual Standby technology.

The American tech giant said: "iOS 12.1 will be available Tuesday, October 30, bringing Group FaceTime and more than 70 new emoji to iPhone and iPad".

"Sports fans will celebrate the addition of new emoji for softball and lacrosse, while outdoor adventurers will enjoy new characters for luggage, compass and a hiking boot".

With iOS 12.1, users can now dynamically adjust the depth of field in real-time preview. With iOS 12.1, users can now dynamically adjust the depth of field in real-time preview in addition to post-capture, enabling more control to create portraits with a lovely background blur.
