Apple releases iOS 12.1 - The details

iOS 12.1 Group FaceTime Compatibility: Will Your Device Support It?

Apple's privacy tools now go beyond Europe, so more now get to download the personal data it has collected.

That's despite Apple rolling out the iOS 12.1 software update that unleashed the dual-SIM features of its new iPhones.

For iPhone XS, XS Max and iPhone XR user, iOS 12.1 enables depth of field controls in Portrait mode which allows you to take portrait and adjust the level of bokeh after the image has been taken.

Apple's October 30th event is expected to see the debut of new iPad Pro and Mac devices, with the long-ignored Mac mini set to get some much-needed love.

iOS 12.1 is officially available for iPhones and iPads. 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 handsome background blur.

The new FaceTime calls are supposedly "private and viewable only by the participants" and include an interesting feature to modulate the size of each person in the call in real time.

Cook highlighted a few features shipping in 12.1, most notably a Group Facetime feature that will support a whopping 32 simultaneous participants.

The folloiwng can also be used by the government to push their agendas via Central Bank. Bond yields and prices move in opposite directions.

Reddit users also experienced bricked Apple Watch units after trying to install watchOS 5.1. Inactive callers will be placed on the bottom of the screen until they speak, said Apple.

Group FaceTime is integrated into the Messages app, making it easy to start a Group FaceTime right from a group iMessage chat. One can tap a specific person's tile and bring them to center as well.

iOS 12.1 also brings Depth Control in real-time preview and dual-SIM support to iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR customers.

iOS 12.1 adds over 70 new emoji, including people with different hair colours such as red and grey, as well as bald people.

"Sports fans will celebrate the addition of new emoji for softball and lacrosse, while outdoor adventurers will enjoy new characters for luggage, compass and a hiking boot".

With the eSIM option, users will not need to put in a physical SIM card to access a cellular network. But this is not the dual SIM support that we're used to here in Malaysia.
