With iOS 12.1, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR gain Dual SIM support, featuring a nano-SIM and digital eSIM. With the iOS 12.1 release, Apple will introduce 70 new emojis, including "new characters with red hair, gray hair and curly hair, a new emoji for bald people, more emotive smiley faces and additional emoji representing animals, sports and food".

iOS 12.1 will also bring new artist pages, a daily playlist of the top 100 songs around the world, and the ability to search by lyrics to Apple Music. But Apple is already working on the next update, iOS 12.1, to bring newer features that users will love.

Messages integration: Group FaceTime is integrated into the Messages app, making it easy to start a Group FaceTime right from a group iMessage chat. The size of the person's image then changes depending on how active they are being on the call.

Once you've updated, you'll find some new features to play with. Participants who are not active will appear at the bottom of the screen until they speak.

The new iOS software brings a range of new features to the iPhone and iPad, this includes the new eSIM feature which means that the SIM card is built into the handset and the same one can be used by multiple carriers. "A simple tap also brings a participant front and centre", Apple added. For the first time ever, Apple has introduced dual-SIM support in iPhones, allowing users to have two cellular networks on a single device. Your device should be using a Wi-Fi connection to download the over-the-air update. To solidify 12.1's relevance, over 70 new emoji are on board here. Dual-SIM support has always been absent from iPhones, and according to Pornhub data (not a typo), is one of the few things to have interested Android users during the September iPhone XS reveal.
