The new update brings back the Call Duration feature to the Phone app. Long press on a call in the history and you will see the Call Duration under Details. Users have also reported that when dialing voicemail from a dual-SIM phone, the Phone app no longer asks you to choose which SIM to make the call from. As usual, there is no changelog to confirm what new features or enhancements have been included in the new update.
