iOS 13 remedies FaceTime eye contact issue

WSig/Twitter

FaceTime calls or video calls are seen as a more intimate way to talk to someone. It’s also a good professional tool. But the intimacy gets lost in a bit as you can’t exactly look the person in the eye because you tend to look at the person you’re talking to on the screen instead of at the camera. And so, iOS 13 is hoping to remedy this with the use of ARKit. A new “FaceTime Attention Correction” feature will give you some realistic-looking fake eye contact with the person you’re FaceTiming with. It maps your face and adjusts the positioning of your eyes accordingly. Since iOS 13 is in beta, we don’t know yet how this feature will work or whether it’ll support group calls. For those using the public beta, you might be able to try this out in the coming week.

They're constantly at war over patents, claiming copyright infringement with every waking innovation announced, so today's news should come as no surprise to anyone. Shortly after its big WWDC announcement earlier this month, Apple has gone ahead and patented the new flat 'green' FaceTime logo. Although, of course, things could change with the other app colors prior to iOS7's official release in September, its highly unlikely. Patents cost money and Apple wouldn't begin filing unless they were serious about moving forward.
