The Phone app receives a significant update to highlight meaningful calls, even in third-party apps. Personalized Contact Posters let users customize how they appear when contacting familiar people.
FaceTime now enables leaving video/audio messages to precisely capture thoughts when someone can’t answer. Reactions like hearts, fireworks and lasers activated by gestures make FaceTime calls more expressive.
