WatchOS 5.1 Bricking Apple Watch for Some Users, No Fix in Sight

Apple's recently launched operating system is not a radical change from its predecessor, but it introduces new features that could change the way you use your smartphone.

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 will on Tuesday release iOS 12.1 for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch (sixth generation) users. If you haven't been following what the update brings to the table, we've highlighted some of iOS 12's more exciting features below. The update will bring important features like group FaceTime, dual-SIM support for the new iPhones, over 70 emojis, and a fix for over-smooth selfies. A simple tap also brings a participant front and center.

Additionally, one can start a group Facetime call directly from messages app. Apple also noted that all Facetime calls are protected by end-to-end encryption.

Apple today released watchOS 5.1 and tvOS 12.1 to the public.

To download and install iOS 12.1 on your Apple device, go to Settings General Software Update and then follow the on-screen instructions. 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. If people in a conversation have already started a FaceTime session, Messages shows the active call in the conversation list and inside your conversations. China is the only market where Apple will launch a different version of the new iPhones with two physical nano SIM card slots. With iOS 12.1, users can now dynamically adjust the depth of field in real-time preview.

See how the depth control works in the video below.

At Apple's Special Event today that unveiled the new iPad Pro, MacBook Air, and Mac Mini, these emoji also made an appearance and were said to be coming soon.

The iOS 12 makes the older phones like the iPhone 6+ and iPad Air much faster: 40 per cent faster app launches, 50 per cent faster keyboard opening, and nearly 70 per cent improvement in opening the camera, according to Apple.
