Group Facetime still partly broken?
Unfortunately, Group FaceTime even under iOS 12.1.4 hasn't quite been restored to its former functionality. A MacRumors forum thread started the day after 12.1.4's release revealed users who found themselves unable to add more users to a FaceTime call. As it turns out, it appears that users are no longer able to add a person to a one-on-one FaceTime call. The "Add Person" button remains greyed out and inactive in this situation. The only way to add another person to a Group FaceTime call at this time is to start the call with at least two other people. This slight distinction appears to be the source of confusion for many users.
Apple is actively working on iOS 12.2 Beta which has not yet seen the addition of the patch for Group FaceTime, but we'd expect them to address the ongoing bugs in a later 12.2 beta release.
Try on glasses with your iPhone
With the all the new tech Apple is putting into their phones, namely Face ID, this makes so much more possible. The kids know this when it comes to using funny filters for Animoji’s, Snapchat, and Instagram. But a glasses company, Warby Parker, has incorporated this technology into their app so you can try on their glasses without having to go into a store or order some to try on. I actually have a few pair of Warby Parkers and they’re great, not to mention cheap compared to somewhere like LensCrafters. Check out their new app here.
Wondering where you can manage app subscriptions on your iPhone?
Apple finally made an update that allows you to easily find what you’ve subscribed to! This is a long time coming. While they could always be found, they were buried many layers deep in Settings. Here’s a picture of what to click on to manage subscriptions.
