There comes a time when a user has to launch multiple applications at the same time. If it is slow to launch or hangs, users tend to become put off by the brand. Mobile users appreciate uninterrupted functioning and prompt response which is what Apple works towards.
Apple users have never been unfamiliar with the clear voice quality and crisp display of the FaceTimeapp. FaceTime has been upgraded, enabling 32 people to interact with each other at the same time.
