Before the long-awaited for many updates soon.
Apple has announced the exact release date of iOS 12.1 , the first major upgrade for iOS 12. iOS 12.1 will be available for all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch today, October 30, 20:00 Moscow time. The release will take place one hour after the presentation of Apple, which will showcase new iPad and Mac.
Apple not only announced the exact release date of iOS 12.1, but also reminded users, what innovations will occur in the system. The main new feature in iOS 12.1 is the ability to perform group video calls on FaceTime. In one group call can participate up to 32 people.
However, it is important to note that group video calling will not be available for users of iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The owners of these iPhone models with the release of iOS 12.1 can perform only group audio calls for FaceTime. It is assumed that the limitation is due to the lack of performance on older iPhone models.
