Apple today released iOS 12 beta 7 to developers continuing what now appears to be a weekly release schedule as time slips away ahead of an official release that is expected to arrive towards the end of September. There is plenty to get the teeth into with this particular iOS update, which was a pleasant surprise when it was announced during WWDC 2018 after rumors had Apple preferring to launch with a focus on stability and performance rather than new features.

The anticipated video chat upgrade is apparently delayed.

On Monday, with the release of the seventh iOS 12 and macOS Mojave developer betas, Apple has removed the feature. Group FaceTime won't release with the launch of iOS 12 and MacOS Mojave, according to Apple build release notes spotted by 9to5Mac and confirmed to CNET by Apple.

It's unclear why Apple chose to postpone the feature's launch but it's not uncommon for Apple to delay features like this.

Demonstrated prominently in Apple's WWDC keynote event earlier this year, Group FaceTime would allow more than two people to participate in a FaceTime video call at once, with a presentation similar to that of longtime conference-call staple Google Hangouts. "Group FaceTime has been removed from the initial release of iOS 12 and will ship in a future software update later this fall".
