The update also brings 70 new emojis including "new characters with red hair, gray hair and curly hair, a new emoji for bald people, more emotive smiley faces and additional emoji representing animals, sports and food".

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

You may still need a battery replacement for these devices if you plan to hold onto them for a long time - no lithium-ion battery can retain its full capacity forever. Does iOS 12.1 bring about further performance improvements?

Outside of new hair options, iOS 12.1 introduces emoji for superhero and supervillain, bagel, mango, badger, kangaroo, teddy bear, a leg, and much more.

Given how great iOS 12.1 is in terms of features, we highly recommend that you stick around with it. The interesting thing about the new feature is the iPhone can track facial motion and automatically recognise them active speakers and brings to the forefront of the group chat.

Also, Group FaceTime is integrated into the Messages app, making it easy to start a Group FaceTime right from a group iMessage chat. The participants who are not active appears at the bottom of the screen until they speak.

Ditched by LeBron, Cavaliers need love, Basketball News & Top Stories
This story was first published on CNN .com, " NBA: There is life after LeBron James, says Cleveland's Kevin Love ". Fellow veteran Tristan Thompson recently challenged other Eastern Conference teams to dethrone the Cavs.

To start your FaceTime call, tap the Audio or Video buttons.

In addition to Group FaceTime, the user guide also notes dual-SIM functionality for iPhone "XR", "XS" and "XS Max" will go live when the iOS point update sees release.

When it comes to joining a FaceTime call, you can do so from the notification - either in the Notification Center or the lock screen - or from a group Messages conversation.

Portrait mode in iOS already enables users to adjust the bokeh after the photo is taken.

In all three of the 2018 iPhones, there is a physical nano-SIM slot as well as an eSIM slot which will allow users to use more than one carrier off their device. eSIM won't be readily available through all operators and the current list only include 14 operators, of which only 2 are available in India.

That means you can get it working by just heading to your iPhone's Settings (the iPhone paired with the Watch), then General Language & Region and choosing United States as the region.
