Apple has reportedly been developing a new feature that allows you to fake eye contact during FaceTime. A beta iOS 13 feature called FaceTime Attention Correction digitally corrects a person’s gaze to appear that they’re looking directly into the camera.

Usually when people FaceTime, they look at the screen, not the camera, so on the receiving end of the call it appears that the person is looking down. The feature would create more intimacy by making users fake eye contact.

Some users have tested out the feature, “Looking at him on-screen (not at the camera) produces a picture of me looking dead at his eyes like I was staring into the camera,” Mike Rundle said in a tweet. He also posted a screenshot of the FaceTime Attention Correction option from his iPhone and it’s described as “Your eye contact with the camera will be more accurate during FaceTime Video calls.”

Apple has not commented on FaceTime Attention Correction, so it’s unclear if the feature will go beyond the development stage. Apple released the beta version of the iOS 13, but it’s said that you can only access the beta OS feature on iPhone XS and XS Max. The FaceTime Attention Correction feature isn’t available on the public beta, only in the developer version. Even if you’re not a developer, you can still download the new iOS 13 beta and try out the other features.

“How iOS 13 FaceTime Attention Correction works: it simply used ARKit to grab a depth map/position of your face, and adjusts the eyes accordingly,” Dave Schukin the co-founder of Observant tweeted. Connected to the tweet is a video of him using the arm of his glasses to cover his eye briefly then when removed you can see the eye being readjusted for eye contact.

On Apple’s website, they say the iOS 13 will be released this fall. In the past, the company usually releases the new iOS versions in September, the same time that they release new iPhones.

Some of the other features that are going to be available on the iOS 13 is Dark Mode, new camera features like Lighting Control, Redesigned Editing, Powerful Video Editing, and Augmented Reality.
