Initially, all these iPhones had 720p FaceTime calls but with iOS 14.2, the iPhone 8 models also got improvement.
While Apple is launching iOS 14, official changelog has announced that the iPhone X and later models will receive 1080p FaceTime video resolution support. However, it seems that the two older phones also got this feature. We’re talking the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, both of which started in line with the iPhone X in 2017. Initially, all these iPhones had 720p resolution FaceTime calls but with iOS 14.2, the iPhone 8 models also got improvement.
You can even see the new feature mentioned on the handset comparison page. It is worth noting that the 1080p resolution is only available via Wi-Fi network. While this upgrade has now been confirmed on the iPhone 8, it is not certain when the two phones received this. However, according to a MacMagazine report, it came with iOS 14.2.
It’s worth adding that the iPhone 12 models can make 1080p FaceTime calls via Wi-Fi and 5G. The report adds that since both the iPhone 12 and iPhone 11 models have the same camera hardware as before, the 4G connection seems to be the only issue of not having a 1080p FaceTime call on the iPhone 11.
Meanwhile, there have been reports indicating that iPhone 12 users are facing network problems such as loss of connectivity while on the road. Most users are on Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile networks. Apple has not yet commented on the matter as complaints continue to pile up on social media. The problem seems to be with all iPhone 12 models including iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
