"Beautygate" is a bug in Apple's iOS camera software that over-corrects selfies to me face appear smoother, so much so that it looks unnatural and before iOS 12.1 there was no way to reduce or even disable the effect of the correction.

GOOD NEWS FOR iPhone users with two phone numbers and exactly 31 friends: version 12.1 of iOS will bring both dual-SIM support and a promised feature of FaceTime that nobody will actually use.

The company claims that FaceTime changed the way people communicate and share important moments, and "now with Group FaceTime, it's easy to chat with more people than ever before, from two to 32 people". Apple also maintains full encryption regardless of whether you are having a one-to-one or group chat, so everything stays private.

iOS 12.1 is officially available for iPhones and iPads. The update is still just as fast as iOS 12, so you really don't have to worry about performance degradation here. There are also additional enhancements built into FaceTime with the new update like automatic detection of active speakers which, ringless notification and messages integration.

The new emoji include red, gray and curly haired characters, "more emotive" smiley faces, and a range of new animals, sports and food. It automatically sizes each person's image depending upon how active they are in the conversation, based on the duration of the speech, volume and even motion.

When initiating a new group call, the FaceTime app enables adding multiple contacts at once then choosing whether to start an audio or video call.

Some users are claiming this issue may be related to those running iOS 12.1 beta on their iPhone. If people in a conversation have already started a FaceTime session, Messages shows the active call in the conversation list and inside your conversations. A simple tap also brings a participant front and centre.

Additionally, the update turns on dual SIM support for the aforementioned models as well as the iPhone XR. In addition to the built-in physical SIM, as of iOS 12.1 you can add a second line to your phone via an eSIM.
