IOS 12 Will Let You Use Animojis In FaceTime Video Calls

Hence, the upcoming version of iOS 12, code-named "Peace", will be more focused on under-the-hood refinements rather than bringing any exciting new features. The Animoji characters will also come to the iPad, with the company reportedly working on a model of the tablet with a Face ID camera.

If you're an iPad power user, I hope you got all of the multi-tasking features you were hoping for in iOS 11.

Apple is expected to release a new version of iOS in September.

"The company is shaking up its development program to focus more on key features and push back others to the following year", says the report.

Even the new iPhone X has been affected, with some users complaining about app crashes and incoming calls not being noted in time.

The report further suggests that Apple might also bring the Animojis to its FaceTime feature as well, this will allow the consumers to use the AR (Augmented Reality) feature while on a video call.

The report claims that the shift appears to be iPhone maker's acknowledgement of the fact that some Apple software being released are vulnerable to bugs and not as foolproof as the company's products were when it was a small team. Bloomberg cited a person familiar with the company who said, "This change is Apple beginning to realize that schedules are not being hit, stuff is being released with bugs - which previously would not have happened". This wouldn't be surprising given that Apple Watch and iMessage apps can also be downloaded from the iOS App Store.

Will iOS 12 Be the iPhone's Snow Leopard?

In terms of the iPad, tabs - which have typically only been used in desktop browsers like Windows 10 and macOS - are coming as well, allowing several windows to run inside a single app, as well as he ability to run apps simultaneously, side-by-side.

It's probably also good news for software engineers at Apple, who may get to take a break now and then from the relentless marching forward of the army - though some all-nighters are most likely still in their future.

Axios reported that "pushed into 2019 are a number of features including a refresh of the home screen and in-car user interfaces, improvements to core apps like mail and updates to the picture-taking, photo editing and sharing experiences".
