Group FaceTime is Finally Coming to Apple Devices Courtesy of iOS 12.1

By Dave Meikleham on at

Do you desire to show off your mesmerising mug to multiple other human beings via the medium of a digital call? Then prepare to have your day made: group video chats are finally coming to FaceTime with Apple's latest iOS update.

The company's new firmware should hit any day now, and when it does iOS 12.1 will roll out Group FaceTime, which should support chats with up to 32 people. As 9to5Mac notes though, and most likely owing to hardware restrictions, not every Apple device will get to share in the face-sharing glory – the iPad mini 2, mini 3, and iPad Air are all being left out in the cold. Groups calls will also be limited to audio-only on the iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, and the 6 Plus.

iOS 12.1 will also roll out dual SIM support for more recent iPhone models, meaning you’ll be able to manage two different numbers on a single device… which doesn’t sound at all shifty.

Anyone else getting flashbacks to early seasons of Breaking Bad? Why do you have a burner, Walter?
