The update was announced at Apple’s annual developer conference, which is being held for the second year in a row, and runs through June 11.
This update is likely to be released next fall.
Last fall, Apple announced the introduction of a surround-type audio system, and this feature is already coming to the iPhone, according to the company’s website.
This feature, for example, when you are talking to a friend or family on the phone, makes you feel that they are in the same room with you.
FaceTime’s facial recognition technology will also use artificial intelligence to eliminate background noise and isolate your voice “so it’s crystal clear,” said Craig Federighi, iPhone’s senior vice president of software engineering.
New icon view
The update will also include a new grid view to show all your friends and family icons, and Apple will add portrait mode to the video chat app, a blurry background inspired by the camera function.
Apple’s FaceTime Links will also allow you to schedule calls with people, and you’ll be able to send the invite link to people via email and text messages.
And this feature is not only limited to iPhone devices, according to Craig Federighi, who revealed that you will be able to use it with your friends who have Android phones.
These calls will be end-to-end encrypted.
Finally, Apple is rolling out a feature called SharePlay, which will allow you to make a FaceTime call while listening to music or watching a movie on your phone.
Apple said it is already working with Disney+, Hulu, and HBO Max to support this feature.
