Apple's iOS 12.1 software update should land tomorrow


If you haven't been following what the update brings to the table, we've highlighted some of iOS 12's more exciting features below. A few of my personal favorites include the new partying face, smiling face with hearts, cold face, and pleading face.

Reddit users also experienced bricked Apple Watch units after trying to install watchOS 5.1.

FaceTime in iOS 12.1 finally gets the "group" aspect that Apple teased when initially announcing iOS 12.

You'll now be able to host FaceTime video chats with between 2 and 32 people in the same conversation.

Group FaceTime is integrated into Messages, so you can initiate a group call from within that app. You can always then reset the region afterwards. If you have not already installed the watchOS 5.1 update on your Apple Watch, my recommendation would be to simply wait for Apple to release a revised build.

"When an invitation is received, people can choose to join using audio or video from iPhone, iPad and Mac". Now, after upgrading to the iOS 12.1, aforementioned phone owners can adjust the depth control (F16-F1.4) in real-time, before taking the picture.

Afghans In Kandahar Vote In Delayed Elections Amid Recent Violence
Voting in the province was delayed by one week after an attack that killed two senior Afghan officials. There are 112 candidates, of whom 12% are women, for Kandahar's 11 parliamentary seats, the IEC said.

See how the depth control works in the video below. Hopefully, with the new update, this is fixed.

Prior to the iOS 12.1, the newly launched iPhone XS, XS Max and the XR came with Depth Control feature, but the user could only use it after taking the photo. One can tap a specific person's tile and bring them to center as well.

With iOS 12 Apple insisted all its devices would be treated to a noticeable speed boost.

The company earlier confirmed to The Verge that it will fix the over-smoothing effect in selfies deemed as "Beautygate" by many. The result is a loss of detail that looks like smoothing on the front camera.

Apple's iOS 12.1 update brought digital eSim support to the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR on Tuesday, but USA carriers won't support the feature until later in the year due to reported technical problems.

To set up a cellular plan via eSIM, your device has to first be unlocked, after which you can visit Settings ⇾ Cellular ⇾ Add Cellular Plan and follow the steps from there to set up your second line.
