Apple Announces New Continuity Features at WWDC 2022 You'll soon be able to use your iPhone camera as your webcam and seamlessly flip a FaceTime call from your iPhone to your Mac and back again.

Apple unveiled a new set of continuity features at its WWDC 2022 event today that aim to make your experience across your devices even more seamless.

As part of its MacOS Ventura announcement during the keynote, Apple said that it is extending its Handoff functionality to FaceTime, which will allow you to seamlessly flip your FaceTime calls from your iPhone to your Mac and back again. If you’re on a FaceTime call on your iPhone and bring it close to your Mac, your Mac will recognize the call on your iPhone, giving you the option to continue your call on a larger screen. The function works both ways, so you can hand calls off in either direction. 

Another new continuity feature will allow you to use your iPhone camera as your webcam. Your Mac can automatically recognize your iPhone and use it as the webcam when you initiate a video call. With your iPhone acting as your webcam, you’ll have the ability to leverage features like Center Stage to keep you in the frame, portrait mode to blur your background and studio light to mimic the effects of a ring light to keep you well-lit in difficult lighting conditions.


Clip your iPhone to your Mac and use it as your webcam.


The new Desk View feature uses your iPhone’s ultra-wide camera to give others a view of what’s on your desk during a video call. Apple says it uses powerful image processing to make it look as though it’s an overhead camera pointed at your desk.
