Apple iOS 12.1 introduces Group FaceTime and Dual-SIM Support

Apple has rolled out its new software version 12.1 wherein users will be allowed to conduct Facetime video calls with upto 32 participants. Apart from the Group Facetime feature, it has also added dual-SIM functionality for its latest iPhone releases - XR, XS and XS Max.

With the dual-SIM support, users will be able to utilise two cellular plans on a single device without constant SIM card swapping. Apple's solution will rely on the "Dual SIM Dual Standby technology" which will basically keep both a physical SIM and an embedded eSIM.

The release date for the features remain unspecified though the beta testing has been on since the month of mid-September. Apple's 'iPhone User Guide' for iOS 12.1 is available for free download from iTunes.
