Apple on Tuesday released iOS 12.1, the first significant update since iOS 12 was rolled out in September. The latest software from Apple introduces a number of notable updates, including Group FaceTime, dual SIM support and more.
The biggest new addition is Group FaceTime, a feature that allows up to 32 people to video chat at once. The feature was first detailed by Apple this past summer but was subsequently delayed from its original early fall release.
For iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max owners, iOS 12.1 also allows users to use real-time depth control. The feature makes it easy to for users to see what their photo will look like when using Portrait Mode, rather than changing the aperture after the image is taken.
Additionally, Apple’s new software brings a fix to the front-facing camera found in the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR. Now, the camera will produce images that don’t make it look like a person’s skin has been smoothed out.
Meanwhile, iOS 12.1 includes over 70 new emoji, including more diverse people as well as additional emoji for animals, sports and food. The new emoji will be available on the Apple Watch and Mac as well, Apple said.
Finally, Apple’s software includes dual SIM support, which owners of the iPhone XS, iPhone XS, and iPhone XR can take advantage of.
You can download iOS 12.1 as an over-the-air update right now.
