Install iOS 12.1.4 for These Other Changes

Install iOS 12.1.4 for These Other Changes

iOS 12.1.4 doesn't come with any new features but if you skipped older versions of iOS 12, you'll get some smaller features baked into your version of iOS 12.1.4. 

If you missed iOS 12.1.1 you'll get a new one tap gesture to flip between the rear and front-facing camera during a FaceTime call, Live Photo capture during one-to-one FaceTime calls, the option to hide the sidebar in News on iPad in landscape orientation, Real-time text (RTT) when using Wi-Fi calling on iPad and iPod touch, and stability improvements for dictation and VoiceOver with your iOS 12.1.4 update. 

iOS 12.1.1 also brought some improvements to the HomePod. HomePod now supports Mainland China and Hong Kong and the HomePod LEDs will now illuminate during Group FaceTime calls.

If you skipped iOS 12.1, you'll get some additional features with your version of iOS 12.1.4. 

iOS 12.1 added a performance management feature to prevent newer iPhone models from unexpectedly shutting down.

This includes the option to disable this feature if an unexpected shutdown occurs on the iPhone X, iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus.

It's a controversial change, but Apple says "performance management may be less noticeable due to their more advanced hardware and software design." 

The iOS 12.1 update also added the ability for Battery Health to inform you that it is unable to verify if a genuine Apple battery is in iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR and improved reliability of VoiceOver in Camera, Siri, and Safari. 

iOS 12.1 users also discovered some additional tweaks including new padlock unlock animations on the lock screen, a new sound when pressing the camera and flashlight icon on the lock screen, a new Color under Face Gallery in the Watch app, and a redesigned Heart app icon in the Watch app.

    iOS 12.1 has a SERIOUS security flaw, enabling stealing your contacts via a mere phone call!!! DO NOT UPGRADE!!!

    Fix the Facebook photo orientation please. Landscape photos keep going in portrait mode when using iPad in landscape mode. I am using iPad Pro First generation. 12.9 inch. 128 Gig if that helps.

    I have an iPhone SE..and now I have the iOS 12.1
    I am really scared to download this new update 12.1.3, because I’m afraid my phone is gonna crash, get really slow, or something else that makes it worse.
    I think I’ll just wait a little bit more., What do you think?
    It does seem like my battery goes down very quickly..and my phone is not that old (I bought it in the fall of 2017..
    Apart from the battery (and that it dies in the cold.. which it actually always have), it works fine.

    But I miss being able to take Live Photo’s on Facetime!! I have nieces and nephews in other countries, so I really want that back. Is that feature on this new update?

    Hope I’ll get some feedback from you guys!☺️ Is it best to just wait with this update?

      I haven’t updated my ios in a REALLY long time. I’m on 12.1 and I always read about problems that new ios brings and I’m so happy I haven’t updated. I don’t have any problems with connecting to wifi or cellular data and I can still make calls. So it’s up to you if you roll the dice and update. I personally choose not to.

      Also that new feature screen time could be why your battery drains so fast. Try turning it off.
