New Emoji Are Coming to Your iPhone in the iOS 12.1 Update

With iOS 12.1, Apple introduced a bunch of new features to its mobile devices like Group FaceTime and dozens of new emoji. This essentially improves the Portrait shot with "professional-level bokeh" look.

Portrait mode with Depth Control is also available on the TrueDepth camera for selfies, which includes Memoji and faster face tracking support for third-party ARKit apps, the company wrote. These new features include Group FaceTime, depth control in real-time preview, and dual-SIM capability via eSIM for the iPhone XS, iPhone XR. This means users can now switch between two telecom carriers using just one SIM card.

Downloading and installing the update can take a little bit of time, especially right after the update becomes available, but it shouldn't be that big of an issue - this is just iOS 12.1, after all, not a complete jump from iOS 11 to iOS 12.

Yesterday, Apple shipped new updates to iOS, macOS, and watchOS. You'll have to have a word with your network provider and, obviously, stump up some more money each month for a separate plan.

That's because the only agency to approve the use of the ECG functionality to monitor heart rhythm is the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). With this feature, you can FaceTime with up to 32 people, and the person who's speaking will automatically be placed front and center.

Adds support for video and audio calls with up to 32 participants simultaneously. Inactive callers will be placed on the bottom of the screen until they speak, said Apple.

This should be pretty self-explanatory.

For dual SIM support, the new iPhone X series phones use a traditional SIM tray for its primary number and an eSIM for the secondary account. There are also emoji for Asian culture including a new emoji for moon cake, angpow and the nazar amulet.

The Cupertino-based firm went on: "Emoji are used by people all over the world to communicate and iOS 12.1 brings even more characters to the keyboard that better represent global users, including new emoji for moon cake, red gift envelope and nazar amulet".

Plus there are new emoji for animals like a raccoon, a llama, a kangaroo, a mosquito, a lobster and a swan.
