Apple has released latest stable version updates for iOS, macOS, tvOS, and HomePod devices. To be specific, the latest updates bring iOS 12.1.1, macOS 10.14.2, tvOS 12.1.1, and HomePod 12.1.1 to all the eligible devices. It means if you have any device compatible to receive new updates, you should be seeing an OTA update notification soon enough.
Starting with iOS 12.1.1, the update is packed with a bunch of noteworthy features for iPhone and iPad. It adds the notification preview feature to Haptic Touch on iPhone XR which should come in handy. FaceTime has received a slight UI change where it has been made easier to switch between front-facing and rear camera as well as the ability to capture Live Photos during one-to-one calls. The dual SIM support with eSIM compatibility for more carriers is now available for iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max. Other than this, there are a lot of improvements and bug fixes included with the update.
For macOS users, the update brings RTT (real-time text) support during WiFi calling which is something that is now available on iPhones as well. It now allows users to set Safari as the default option for opening News stories. It also fixes the issue where iTunes was not able to play music on third-party AirPlay speakers. The HomePod update makes LEDs light up during a Group FaceTime call. It further expands support to Hong Kong and Mainland China.
As mentioned in the beginning, you should receive the update notification anytime soon. But if you don't want to wait, you can also look for the same manually by visiting the device's settings. The updates for iOS and macOS run into GBs which is the reason we would suggest you connect to WiFi before starting the download.
