Group FaceTime calls will be a new feature introduced in iOS 11, according to an unverified rumor shared by Israeli site The Verifier. Citing „several people familiar with iOS development,“ the site says group FaceTime calls are being worked on by Apple’s iOS 11 team, with some of the work taking place in Israel.
