Just as suggested by the version number of this release, the latest iOS 12.1.1 is more about major bug fixes to streamline the overall performance of this operating system from Apple on all the compatible devices. It will also ensure that any and all the known security glitches are fixed. That being said, the release will also unlock a few minor feature updates which will provide iPhone/iPad owners with something new to try out.
As far as the owners of iPhone XR are concerned, this new iOS version will come equipped with Haptic Touch feature to allow them to expand their notifications right on lock screen. It’s being exposed clearly in absence of the 3D Touch feature in iPhone XR Liquid Retina LCD panel. This release from Apple is also being used for making a few slight UI changes in News App from the smartphone manufacturer. The UI changes will take effect when the users will be using the said app on their iPads with landscape orientation. There will be some tweaks as well about latest eSIM functionality which is known to allow device owners to get access to several numbers simultaneously on the latest iPhones.
Lastly, the manufacturer has also come up with some changes in FaceTime inside new iOS 12.1.1. These include re-introduction of the functionality which allows for Live Photos in FaceTime instance and making a few visual changes in bottom bar as well as the way different buttons and features are accessed. That’s a welcoming change for addressing those disgruntled calls from the users thinking that recent changes to iOS 12’s FaceTime from Apple were more of a usability nightmare.
Nevertheless, it’s great to find out that Apple has acknowledged the issues and made amendments in a very quick turnaround time. It is, particularly, important to consider that FaceTime supports a maximum of 32 people now in just one call and will probably have a greater number of people to use it daily and interact with it.
