★ iOS 12 may not ship with Group FaceTime at launch


iOS 12 may not ship with Group FaceTime at launch | 9to5Mac:

This is a disappointing development: Group FaceTime for iPhone, iPad, and Mac appears to be delayed and won’t be ready in time for iOS 12 and macOS Mojave launch next month. Group FaceTime expands video calling from one-on-one calls to up to 32 participants, but customers will have to wait a little longer to use it this fall.

FaceTime’s delay echoes AirPlay’s release with iOS 11 — originally announced as part of iOS 11, the released nearly a year later in iOS 11.4 — but hopefully Group FaceTime doesn’t come with such an extended delay.

Shame. Hopefully it won’t be delayed as long as iMessages in the Cloud was as well as AirPlay 2.
