New FaceTime feature forces you to make eye contact

New FaceTime feature forces you to make eye contact

iOS 13's Beta 3 has apparently released a new feature which will fix the problem wherein we tend to look properly while on a video call.

Second, will this feature will be available on all Apple devices?

There does seem to be a lack of clarity at this point about which devices the new feature will work with.

Whether this is foreshadowing the iPhone XI, which could introduce a USB-C port for the first time, remains to be seen, although it does make sense. The FaceTime Attention Correction function appears to only be available in the developer version of the iOS 13 beta, as it is not now appearing in the public beta's FaceTime settings.

Apple did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for confirmation and additional details about how the feature works.

Apple appears to do this through the use of ARKit, a suite of software tools for its developers and third-party software wranglers to make augmented reality apps for iOS. It grabs a depth map/position of your face in realtime during the video call, and adjusts the eyes accordingly.

Apple announced the latest version of its mobile operating system, the Apple iOS 13 at WWDC 2019 last month.

Additions in the Setup app may mean that Apple could be working on a new wired transfer process. If your iPhone or iPod falls in the list below, you too can install iOS 13 public beta right now. It sounds complex, but you can look at it as just a Snapchat filter (only a much more meaningful implementation of the technology).
