Apple's iOS 12.1 will release on October 30th”

This year's new iPhones are Apple's first phones to come with dual-SIM support, although only the phones targeting China will actually house two SIM cards at the same time. 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. As it now appears, the stable version of the latest software update is ready to be rolled out to iPhone users, bring two most-awaited features Apple has already showcased. Make sure to give the new features a try and spam your friends with the new emoji tomorrow once the update starts rolling out.

As it prepares for its next hardware event of 2018, Apple looks to be applying finishing touches to the next version of iOS. iOS 12.1 will bring a bunch of new upgrades to the iPhones, the biggest of which will be the dual-SIM functionality on the 2018 models.

iOS 12.1 will also bring new artist pages, a daily playlist of the top 100 songs around the world, and the ability to search by lyrics to Apple Music.

iOS 12.1 is going to be a significant update.

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

It's not actually clear when iOS 12.1 will land, but these features will definitely be in the mix.

Apple's "iPhone User Guide" for iOS 12.1 is a free download from iTunes. But the feature is not like it is on Android phones. However, Apple will still be using Dual SIM Dual Standby technology which means cellular data can only be active on of the SIMs and when one of the SIMs is on-call, a call on the other will lead to voicemail. Apple mentioned several carrier partners during the iPhone event in mid-September, but don't be surprised if your local carrier doesn't yet support it.

USA and European Union carriers have reportedly been briefed to begin deploying eSIM contracts from 30 October, at which time users will be able to download iOS 12.1.
