In iOS 15.1, Apple made some improvements to FaceTime. This means you can do much more than just call your friends and family.
With a new screen sharing feature called SharePlay, you can now share your screen with other FaceTime callers. This is great for watching a movie together, browsing your photo album, or any other activity that requires group discussion.
Here's how the new screen sharing feature works:
- Launch FaceTime on your iPhone or iPad.
- Tap New FaceTime Call and add the contacts you want to share your screen with, then tap the FaceTime button at the bottom. You can also select a recently selected contact to make a video call.
- Once connected, tap the SharePlay button in the upper-right corner of the screen in the new control panel.
- Tap Share My Screen in the drop-down menu. After a three-second countdown, screen sharing should begin.
After you start sharing your screen, you can go to any app you want to share with your callers. The share icon will remain in the upper left corner of the screen to indicate that FaceTime screen sharing is active, and the control panel will open when you touch it.
You can move the active interlocutor's face away for more screen space, and you can slide it back just as easily. If you're viewing someone else's shared screen, you'll see their first and last name just below the top-left icon, as well as buttons to send a message, like what they're sharing, or share it with someone else.
If you want, you can also listen to music or watch movies and TV together using the SharePlay interface. You can stream movies or TV shows and all participants in the call will see the same synchronized playback and controls.Current prices in stores APPLE Clear Case for iPhone 13 Pro Transparent PLN 207 APPLE Clear Case for iPhone 13 mini Transparent PLN 229 APPLE iPhone 13 Leather Case with MagSafe - Dark Cherry PLN 248 APPLE CASE for iPhone 13 Leather Case with MagSafe - Dark Cherry PLN 248 Apple iPhone 13 Pro Clear Case with MagSafe 249 PLN Apple MM0D3ZM / A Leather case with MagSafe iPhone 13 mini (golden brown) 268 PLN Apple iPhone 13 128GB (moonlight) 4 499 PLN
