The first major point release of iOS 12 is expected to come with a number of new features and enhancements and will come ahead of the crucial holiday season starts in the U.S. Wondering when Apple will get around to releasing iOS 12.1 to the public though? The new cameras on the iPhone Xs allow users to control the depth for Portrait mode pictures after taking the pictures - but with iOS 12.1, you will be able to control the depth of field in real-time when taking pictures, as well as after taking the shot. Then prepare to have your day made: group video chats are finally coming to FaceTime with Apple's latest iOS update. While that feature wasn't available at launch, iOS 12.1 brings it to all compatible phones (XS, Max, XR). Group FaceTime will be able to support upwards of 32 participants, though I can't imagine a scenario where that would actually be more beneficial than a conference call.

Apple's updated guide also mentions some features and improvements that were introduced earlier this year with iOS 12, such as enhanced performance for older iOS devices like the iPhone 5s and iPhone 6.

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 automatically sizes each person's image depending upon how active they are in the conversation, based on duration of speech, volume and even motion.

A new feature called Screen Time also debuted in iOS 12 that attempted to make Apple fans more aware of how much time they spend on their hardware. 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.

T-Mobile will support Apple's dual SIM feature, but it's not available on T-Mo right now. Dual-SIM support has always been absent from iPhones, and according to Pornhub data (not a typo), is one of the few things to have interested Android users during the September iPhone XS reveal.

The dual-SIM functionality for iPhone "XR", "XS" and "XS Max" will go live when the iOS point update sees release.
