Helps people maintain CG eye contact.
iPhone users are losing their minds due to the “scary” Facetime feature that forces people to make eye contact with each other while using the app. A tweet detailing the seemingly miserable literature enhancer – which launched low-key several years ago – is now spreading on social media.
“Guys – FaceTime Attention Correction in iOS 13 beta 3 is daunting,” Tech enthusiast Will Sigmon excels in a tweet that’s now viral About the awful filter, which Apple surreptitiously released in 2019. First beta-tested in iOS 13 as “FaceTime Attention Correction,” the advanced booster program has officially appeared as “Eye Contact” with the release of iOS 14, Mashable reports.
For starters, the function digitally alters the image of people so that they appear to be looking directly at the person they are dealing with even if they are staring elsewhere.
The new tablet has nothing to do with helping the camera maintain eye contact: without this feature, users would appear to be staring off the screen while looking at the other user, because they’re not staring into the camera.
Sigmon even shared side-by-side photos of two different Facetime sessions with his friend Mike Rundle – one with Facetime Attention Correction and one without. In the first image without the setup, Rundle appears to be staring off the screen. However, once turned on, it can be seen – somewhat annoyingly – looking the viewer right in the eye.
Tech Buff, Dave Schukin, CEO and Co-founder of Observant AI, Share a video demo in 2019 Describe the technology behind Eye Contact, which works using Apple’s advanced ARkit technology.
He wrote: “How iOS 13 FaceTime Attention Correction works: It simply uses ARKit to capture a depth/position map of your face, and adjust the eyes accordingly.” Note the curvature of the line across both the eyes and the nose.
Perhaps the biggest understanding is the fact that the feature is turned on automatically, which means that Facetimers will make “eye contact” whether they want to or not.
Needless to say, Facetime fans were appalled by the somewhat offending post.
One pessimist wrote on Twitter, “Just found out that there is an augmented reality filter turned on by default in recent versions of #FaceTime that adjusts your eyes to look like you’re making eye contact! What in neural pattern?”
Other Samaritans on Social Media Prospective Facetimers urged to stop eye contactwhich is achieved by going to “Settings”, then tapping on “Facetime” and turning off “eye contact”.
The feature is available on iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR, provided they’re running iOS 14 or iOS 15.
