As was discussed earlier, Apple will soon seed its latest iPhones with Dual-SIM functionality which will be possible through support for the miniature eSIM slot. It is expected to bring Group FaceTime and new emoji, as well as Depth Control in Camera Preview, and Dual SIM Support for the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR.
This new version of iOS 12 brings Group FaceTime to the operating system, along with Messages integration and Ringless notifications.
Apple seems to have updated its iPhone User Guide which has revealed that the next version goes iOS will be announced tomorrow.
With iOS 12 Apple insisted all its devices would be treated to a noticeable speed boost.
One clue that the public release of iOS 12.1 is coming soon is an update Apple made to the iOS 12 user guide that included acknowledgement of iOS 12.1 features.
Head to Apple for the full list of updated features. The new cameras on the iPhone Xs allow users to control the depth for Portrait mode pictures after taking the pictures - but with iOS 12.1, you will be able to control the depth of field in real-time when taking pictures, as well as after taking the shot. This dual SIM support is a first for iPhones and will allow users more flexibility in the way they use their devices. But that changes with iOS 12.1 update.
Apple's solution relies on "Dual SIM Dual Standby technology", which keeps both a physical SIM and an embedded eSIM - or a second physical SIM card in China - addressable simultaneously.
Apple's "iPhone User Guide" for iOS 12.1 is a free download from iTunes.
While there's no exact release date for the iOS 12.1, another report by BGR suggests the new software launch could take place at Apple's event that is taking place on October 30.
Adding more to that, "carriers in the U.S. and Europe" have reportedly been instructed to start "deploying" the eSIM contracts from October 30.
