The latest version of iOS will be available today, and it includes Group FaceTime and more than 70 new emoji.

Originally announced and beta tested as part of iOS 12.0, Group FaceTime saw a slight delay that pushed it back into iOS 12.1.

It will change several features on your phone itself, such as time and date format, but will ensure you can use the ECG function no matter where you live.

The fresh software introduced a number of new features that improved performance overall. Here's how you can enable dual-SIM on your iPhone XS, XS Max and iPhone XR if you are on Airtel (first reported by FoneArena).

The iOS update also adds more than 70 new emoji, including bald, red, and curly-haired characters.

The new iOS 12.1 software enables new iPhones to carry two cellular subscriptions at once.

You'll now be able to host FaceTime video chats with between 2 and 32 people in the same conversation.

Also, Group FaceTime is integrated into the Messages app, making it easy to start a Group FaceTime right from a group iMessage chat. Simply hit the '.' button near the bottom of the screen, then tap "Add Person" and search to find the person you want to add.

One of the huge features arriving in iOS 12.1 is Apple's adjustable bokeh - background blur - for Portrait Mode photos. As a reminder, at 10AM EST, Apple will be holding its second special event this fall (after the September iPhone Xs event) where we are expecting to see the new 2018 iPads and MacBooks. Earlier, it was possible to control the depth of field only post-capture.

With iOS 12 Apple insisted all its devices would be treated to a noticeable speed boost.
