Apple has released the final version of iOS 12.1.1 for iPhone and iPad. The new version of the operating system contains many minor changes and improvements, as well as bug fixes.
Along with this, Apple also released MacOS Mojave 10.14.2, security updates for macOS Sierra and High Sierra, as well as tvOS 12.1.1.
One of the major changes in iOS 12.1.1 is that in FaceTime, the camera switch button has returned to a more comfortable position. Now it is not hidden behind several layers of the interface, as in previous versions of the system.
We also added support for previewing notifications using the Haptic Touch gesture on the iPhone XR, expanded eSIM support for the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR, and also added a Live Photo feature in FaceTime.
