FaceTime users will face each other.
In iOS 13 beta 3 for developers, the FaceTime app has received a new feature called Attention Correction. She will help the interlocutors to establish eye contact.
The special ARKit algorithm creates the impression that the user is looking directly at the camera during a call, even if he is looking at the display (as is usually the case).
Usually during a video call, it seems that both participants avoid eye contact because they are looking at the display and not directly at the camera.
The feature is currently available only on iPhone XS and XS Max. It can be enabled in the application settings.
Twitter user Dave Schukin explained how it works: ARKit creates a depth map and determines the position of the user's face and adjusts the view accordingly.
Note the curvature of the eyeglass line when it crosses the eye area.
