Apple publishes iOS 12.1 user guide, confirming Group FaceTime, dual-SIM

Today, Apple has just made available an updated version of its iPhone User Guide, including new features from iOS 12.1. The iOS 12.1 will include Group FaceTime and, for iPhone XS and XR, dual-SIM support.

Available for free through Apple Books, the revised “iPhone User Guide for iOS 12.1” is largely unchanged from a previous version created for iOS 12.

This updated guide includes references to new features of iOS 12.1, such as dual SIM support, Group FaceTime and the ability to adjust the depth of portrait mode pictures in the Camera app. Group FaceTime was previously announced as a feature of iOS 12, but Apple delayed its release as it wasn’t quite ready for the initial build of iOS 12. Instead, Apple had promised it would ship in a future software update – which we now know is iOS 12.1.

Apple has not specified a release date for iOS 12.1, though beta versions have been in testing since mid-September. The update could coincide with a media event next week, where the company is expected to unveil new iPad Pro and Mac hardware.
