IPhone X and iPhone 8 get Apple’s controversial processor throttling feature

IPhone X and iPhone 8 get Apple’s controversial processor throttling feature”

Originally announced and beta tested as part of iOS 12.0, Group FaceTime saw a slight delay that pushed it back into iOS 12.1.

Apple's iPhones, however, constitute nearly half of all handsets that are in use by Americans, and offering dual SIM functionality is a potential ticking time bomb for carriers.

The new iOS 12.1 brings more than 70 emoji ranging from adorable Llama, swan, racoon to annoying mosquito. Starting with iOS 12.1, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X include this feature, but performance management may be less noticeable due to their more advanced hardware and software design.

More than the added number of simultaneous connections though, iOS 12.1 can also automatically detect the most active speakers.

Far-right congressman Jair Bolsonaro wins Brazil presidential election
During the presidential campaign, Bolsonaro announced that he would not accept the election results unless he won . Bolsonaro voted in a military district in Rio de Janeiro, greeted by supporters shouting "legend" and "president".

A few days ago the company added an updated version of its "iPhone user guide" for iOS 12.1 on its support website which explained all the new features this update adds.

First up, you'll need an iPhone 6s or later, iPad Pro or later, iPad Air 2 or iPad Mini 4 running iOS 12.1 to use Group FaceTime video calls.

Group FaceTime is integrated into the Messages app, making it easy to start a Group FaceTime right from a group iMessage chat.

"When an invitation is received, people can choose to join using audio or video from iPhone, iPad and Mac".

Reasons to Buy the iPhone XR (and 3 Reasons to Skip)
The XS has slightly better water resistance - good to a depth of 2 meters (2.2 yards), compared with just 1 meter on the XR. The only competitor that commands an equally impressive price is the Pixel 3 XL from Google, which starts at Rs. 83,000.

As always, you can find the iOS update by going to Settings followed by General and then selecting Software Update.

One new iPhone camera trick highlighted during Apple's September keynote this year was the ability to adjust the level of background blur in Portrait mode shots. Earlier, it was possible to control the depth of field only post-capture.

A second camera change found in iOS 12.1 is that Apple has addressed reports of skin smoothing for selfies taken on 2018's flagship iPhones. These are also available on the latest macOS and watchOS update also. And it's fixed now.

In addition to Group FaceTime, the user guide also notes dual-SIM functionality for iPhone "XR", "XS" and "XS Max" will go live when the iOS point update sees release. Instead of actual dual physical SIMs, dual SIM support for the iPhone requires the use of a digital eSIM which is widely supported by U.S. operators but not in Malaysia.
