Apple Releases Updated Version of iOS 12.1 for iPhone XR

Apple today released an updated version of

iOS 12

.1 for the

iPhone XR

, one week after the

initial launch of iOS 12.1

and a little over a week since the

iPhone XR

‘s October 26 launch.


The new

iOS 12

.1 software for the

iPhone XR

carries a build number of 16B94, a slight change from the original 16B93 build number.


The update doesn’t appear to be showing up on devices that have already installed

iOS 12

.1, suggesting the new version of the software is designed for customers who have not yet upgraded their

iPhone XR

devices to the

iOS 12

.1 update. Why Apple released an updated version of

iOS 12

.1 for the XR is unknown, but it’s likely to include minor bug fixes.







iPhone XR

owners who have not yet installed

iOS 12

.1 can do so over-the-air by going to Settings –> General –> Software Update.



iOS 12

.1 is a major update that brings a host of new features to the

iPhone XR

. It brings support for the eSIM, a digital SIM that lets you activate a cellular plan from a carrier without the need to use a physical SIM card.






iOS 12

.1 also brings a new real-time Depth Control feature, which lets you adjust the depth of field of your Portrait Mode photos before you capture them, and it adds support for Group FaceTime calls with up to 32 people.


Other new features include more than 70 new emoji and several important bug fixes that should entice anyone who has not yet installed the update to do so.


Excessive skin-smoothing with the front-facing camera, for example, has been addressed, with Apple updating the Smart HDR feature of the

iPhone XR

‘s camera to use a sharper base frame to preserve more detail.


The update also improves cellular connectivity on the

iPhone XR

and fixes bugs with voicemails, the phone app, Screen Time, Family Sharing, and more.
