On an iPhone XS or later with iOS 14 or later, FaceTime digitally adjusts your video feed so that your eyes are always looking into the camera, even if they aren’t. If you find the idea of digitally altered eyeballs disturbing, this feature is easy to turn off. Here̵
First, open “Settings” on your iPhone.
In Settings, tap FaceTime.
In the “FaceTime” settings, flip the switch next to “Eye Contact” to turn it off. This disables the fake “natural eye contact” function.
You can now exit the “Settings” app. The next time you use FaceTime, your students will be exactly where you expect them to be. Reality wins – for now. Have fun with your call!
