Apple has quietly updated older generation iPhones with support for 1080p FaceTime video calls.

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.
