While iOS 11 reinvented the Apple mobile operating system with a major refresh, we are not expecting anything quite as dramatic with the release of iOS 12. This iOS 12 concept video suggests otherwise, however, and is chock full of ideas for new features that could improve the operating system.

It’s important to note that the video below is simply an iOS 12 concept video from creative designers rather than any sort of media from Apple themselves, but it’s still an interesting exercise and gives us a sense of the massive potential the next major upgrade could possess.

The biggest change, if it happens to make it into the official iOS 12 release, is the Group FaceTime feature, which would allow the stock iOS video calling feature to catch up to other services like SnapChat, who have already introduced a cross-platform video calling feature that millions of people use at least somewhat regularly.
