However, a feature that did not arrive in iOS 12 was Group FaceTime that Apple promised would allow up to 32 people to engage in a video call at the same time.

Additionally, Apple Watch, Apple TV, and Mac software updates are also expected in order to keep up with iOS. 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.

FaceTime will now include the automatic detection of active speakers, displaying also the most prominent speakers on the call as priority.

Participants who are not active will appear at the bottom of the screen until they talk. One can tap a specific person's tile and bring them to center as well.

Apple seems to have updated its iPhone User Guide which has revealed that the next version goes iOS will be announced tomorrow. It adds support for dual SIM functionality on the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR as well as add Group FaceTime feature as well.

Also, Group FaceTime is integrated into the Messages app, making it easy to start a Group FaceTime right from a group iMessage chat.

Ringless notification: When calling more than one person, FaceTime displays a notification that lets you instantly join a call without being disruptive.

Although all devices supporting iOS 12.1 can perform audio calls using Group FaceTime, only the iPhone 6S and later offer support for group video calls.

Most importantly, Apple has confirmed that the Group FaceTime session, be it one-to-one or multi-person, all are fully encrypted end to end so that they remain private and viewable only by the participants. Once a Portrait photo is saved in your library, this depth control feature can be accessed from Photos' edit mode.

With iOS 12.1, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR gain dual-SIM support, featuring a Nano-SIM and digital eSIM.

Speaking of the camera, iOS 12.1 will allow iPhone XS/XR owners to adjust the depth of field/bokeh in the live preview of a portrait shot.

A second camera change found in iOS 12.1 is that Apple has addressed reports of skin smoothing for selfies taken on 2018's flagship iPhones.
