About iOS 12.1's Group Face Time feature

The update also enables support for dual SIM on the iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, and iPhone XR, allowing users to use a combination of nano-SIM and digital eSIM if their device and region support it.

For the iPhone Xs debut last month, the eSIM features were not available yet, but they will be included in the iOS 12.1 update. As it now appears, the stable version of the latest software update is ready to be rolled out to iPhone users, bring two most-awaited features Apple has already showcased.

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.

As it prepares for its next hardware event of 2018, Apple looks to be applying finishing touches to the next version of iOS. iOS 12.1 will bring a bunch of new upgrades to the iPhones, the biggest of which will be the dual-SIM functionality on the 2018 models.

"If people in a conversation have already started a FaceTime session, Messages shows the active call in the conversation list and inside your conversations", said Apple. Airtel and Reliance Jio support eSIMs in India and will be able to offer their solutions once Apple seeds the iOS 12.1 updates to the new iPhones. While that feature wasn't available at launch, iOS 12.1 brings it to all compatible phones (XS, Max, XR).
