Apple on Monday released the fifth beta for iOS 12.1, bringing with it several new features, including Group FaceTime and over 70 emoji.
The biggest new feature is the arrival of Group FaceTime, which Apple delayed when it officially launched iOS 12 in September. The feature, which was detailed at WWDC over the summer, will allow up to 32 people to jump on a FaceTime call together. We’re curious to test the feature out because having 32 people on a single video call sounds chaotic.
In addition, iOS 12.1 beta 5 includes a real-time live preview for Depth Control for users who own an iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. The software also introduces dual SIM support and a fix for the charging problem that crept up when Apple released its latest iPhone models.
Finally, as 9to5Mac notes, Apple’s beta software has hinted that a new iPad Pro redesign is on the way, which means we can likely expect the consumer release of iOS 12.1 around October 30, which is when Apple is holding an event in New York City.
If you’re a developer you can download iOS 12.1 beta 5 as an over-the-air update.
