Apple Finally Releases iOS 12.1.1 with These New Features and Improvements

Apple giveth and Apple taketh away.

I will not recommend going for a clean install for an update as small as iOS 12.1.1 as you will be forced to take a backup of your device and then restore it later on. However, the 12.1.1 update fixes that and switching between the cameras is now comfortable with one-tap and users now can also capture Live Photos during the FaceTime call.

You never know what you're missing until it's gone, they say.

iOS 12.1.1 adds features and fixes bugs for your iPhone and iPad. The app introduced a menu tray which, in turn, hid the toggle to switch between the iPhone's two cameras. Before the update today, users would have to open a hidden menu (blocking out the screen), tap on the camera switch icon, and close the menu.

With the release of iOS 12.1.1, hopefully, watchOS 5.1.2 isn't too far behind. At least for those in certain countries.

Other iOS 12.1.1 updates include additional telco support for eSIM on the new iPhone XR, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. The new rollout includes improvements, and much awaited Haptic Touch for iPhone XR users since Apple had ditched the 3D feature, for cost-cutting and making it the cheaper entry-level iPhone of this year. On the contrary, Apple with iOS 12 will continue to add new features and enhanced functionality with a number of minor updates over the next few months. Even the HomePod is getting some important updates, like support in China and Hong Kong, one of Apple's biggest target markets of late.
