When Apple released the update 14.2 for iOS, it not only resolved some bugs and implemented new features but, it is now known, offered a silent gift to a considerable slice of its users.
Anyone with an iPhone 8 or higher can now make FaceTime video calls in Full HD resolution. Until now, this was only possible on the four iPhone 12 models, but it appears to have been a software limitation.
Models that benefit from the upgrade
- iPhone 8
- iPhone 8 Plus
- iPhone X
- iPhone XS
- iPhone XS Max
- iPhone XR
- iPhone SE 2020
- iPhone 11
- iPhone 11
- iPhone 11 Pro Max
New feature on the comparison page of iPhones
Some attentive eyes noticed that the comparison page between the various smartphones from Cupertino makes it very clear that FaceTime 1080p is now present on all models starting with the iPhone 8.
It is not known why Apple did not refer to the update in the changelog iOS 14.2, but the truth is that this is a very welcome addition, especially in this phase of social detachment.
The difference between 720p and 1080p is quite considerable, especially if the connection is made via a Wi-Fi network, allowing for greater clarity and a more pleasant overall experience.
