The third iOS 13 developer beta arrived yesterday with some important news. We have already told you about the new possible feature of iOS to transfer files between devices, but the news doesn’t end there. Apple has included a new feature called FaceTime Attention Correction that will correct our look when we make a FaceTime call.
During FaceTime video calls , eye contact between the two communicating users is usually unusual as each is looking at the screen and not at the camera on their device. With iOS 13 this will be solved in an incredible way.
One of the problems with video calls is the so-called “eye contact”, the opposite of what happens when we are in person, when we make a video call through FaceTime we look at the screen of the device to see the other person and not at the camera, so it seems that we are not looking at each other’s eyes . A new feature of iOS 13 corrects this through software in an amazing way.
In the video above you can quickly see the software adjustment that Apple is doing in each user’s eye area so that it looks like we are looking at the other user’s eyes. This modification makes use of ARKit and is currently only available on the iPhone XS and XS Max, we don’t know if it will be extended to new devices in the future.
Without a doubt, this is an interesting change that we had not seen before , one of those little novelties that can go unnoticed but that surely has been a real headache when it comes to developing it. Remember that you can install the iOS 13 beta very easily by following our tutorial.
