Apple released their fifth beta of iOS 12.1 last week, we normally would expect a sixth beta but it looks like the final version of the software will be released tomorrow the 30th of October. Among them are Group FaceTime, which supports up to a 32-way group video chat on models ranging from the Apple iPhone 6s to the new 2018 iPhones.

iOS 12.1 will also bring new emojis that will come to iPhone and iPad.

The iOS 12 makes the older phones like the iPhone 6+ and iPad Air much faster: 40 per cent faster app launches, 50 per cent faster keyboard opening, and nearly 70 per cent improvement in opening the camera, according to Apple. Now with the iOS 12.1 update, the software has been upgraded to support eSIM functionality.

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. It will automatically size each person's image depending upon how active they are in the conversation, based on duration of speech, volume, and motion. FaceTime is video chat between iPhones, and it kind of makes sense for two people if you grew up watching The Jetsons.

Kedarnath teaser: Sushant Singh Rajput looks fierce, see photos
The makers have now dropped a teaser of the film showing us a glimpse of what their pilgrim love story is going to be all about. However, out of the blue, the makers of Kedarnath have announced its release date, and what's more, a teaser too is out.

You can check out the full set of features here. Participants who are not active will appear at the bottom of the screen until they speak.

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".

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. Dual SIM support has been a standard feature on Android smartphones for years, but Apple has shown resistance towards it. You can now activate an additional cellular plan from a carrier without having to use a physical nano-SIM. It's a simple process really as you can download the update over the air like any other iOS release out there.

First and foremost, iOS 12.1 will finally bring Group FaceTime to the iPhone.
