iOS 13 Has A Feature That Makes It Looks Like You Are Looking Straight During FaceTime Calls

iOS 13 comes with a special feature that makes you look like you are looking straight at the other person during FaceTime calls

iOS 13 comes with a special feature that makes you look like you are looking straight at the other person during FaceTime calls, even when you are looking away. This new function was found out about by Mike Rundle on Twitter.

For now, it seems like the feature only works on iPhone XS and XS Max with this third developer beta version. It can be turned on and off from FaceTime’s settings.

Before this feature, when users make video calls, it will appear like both parties are looking away as they maintain the habit of looking straight at the image of the other person on the screen instead of at the camera.

Facetime Eye Contact Correction Compressed

The feature is called “FaceTime Attention Correction,” and it may use a kind of image manipulation to set this right. As a result, fake eye contact is formed to make it look like the conversation is happening with both participants looking at each other.

It might be a coincidence that Rundle himself projected the introduction of this feature back in 2017, and now he is the one that found out about it.

Dave Schukin explained on Twitter how Apple could achieve this effect. What they used is ARKit to map faces and change the positions of their eyes to the desired places on the screen. He demonstrated by using the arm of glasses to show viewers how the system warps the eye. Even if you wear glasses, the same effect also appears.

What many people are curious now is whether the feature can work on group calls or which devices it will come to. So far, we can be sure that it can have an effect on two people, but not sure if the same outcome can be achieved when there are more than two participants.

This “FaceTime Attention Correction” will be in the public-facing beta releasing next week.
