Make sure to give the new features a try and spam your friends with the new emoji tomorrow once the update starts rolling out.
The big one, of course, is Group FaceTime.
Some mobile carrier have confirmed that the eSIM feature will be available on devices like the iPhone XS Max from the 30th of October, this means that iOS 12.1 is coming on the 30th of October as it is required for the feature to work.
FaceTime changed the way people communicate and share important moments and "now with Group FaceTime, it's easy to chat with more people than ever before, from two to 32 people", Apple said in a statement late Monday. A simple tap also brings a participant front and centre.
Additionally, one can start a group Facetime call directly from messages app. Apple also noted that all Facetime calls are protected by end-to-end encryption.
The iOS 12 brings a smart manager that's built-in - iCloud Keychain, which lets you opt for a stronger unique password every time you sign up for a new service (suggested by the program), and syncs across all your Apple devices.
Apple released iOS 12 back in September to much fanfare from its huge user base.
Private: All FaceTime conversations, both one-to-one and multi-person, are encrypted end to end so they remain private and viewable only by the participants.
In China, Hong Kong and Macau, the new iPhones have physical slots for a second nano-SIM, but in the rest of the world, it's a virtual eSIM. Earlier, it was possible to control the depth of field only post-capture. Apple adds: "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 attractive background blur".
Having a conversation with that many people involved sounds like a management nightmare, but Apple came up with a few ways to keep things running smoothly. These include real-time depth control in the camera, letting iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR owners adjust the bokeh of a Portrait Mode photo before you take it.
