The ‘FaceTime Attention Correction’ is Here


The ‘FaceTime Attention Correction’ is Here

It seems Apple wants customers to have more eye contact and their new feature allows users to appear as if they are making direct eye contact with the person they are FaceTiming.

What normally happens when we FaceTime, is that we look at the phone screen, so we can see the other person, instead of looking at the camera. This makes us appear as if we are not making eye contact with the other contact.

According to MacRumors, “FaceTime Attention Correction appears to use an ARKit depth map captured through the front-facing TrueDepth camera to adjust where your eyes are looking for a more personal and natural connection with the person that you’re talking to.”

The new feature can be switched on and off from within FaceTime’s settings and it seems that is only currently working on the iPhone XS, XS Max, iPhone XR and 2018 iPad Pro models which are using the third developer beta of IOs 13.

Apple’s new technology is the latest fix to a problem that tech companies have been working on for a while. Back in 2018, Samsung applied for a patent for a new display that featured a camera behind the screen. You can take a look at how Apple’s FaceTime Attention Correction works below.
