MacMagazine has discovered that the release of iOS 14.2 added 1080p support to FaceTime on iPhone 8 models and later.
It would be a very typical software limitation from Apple, but this time it was cool and quietly released FaceTime HD (1080p) to all owners of iPhones 8 , 8 Plus , X , XR , XS , XS Max , SE of second generation , 11 , 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max .
Although the change wasn't listed in the release notes for iOS 14.2, Apple now shows the updated specification on its compare table.
Note that new iPhone 12 models still have an advantage as they support 1080p FaceTime video calls over 5G and Wi-Fi.
