The third developer beta of iOS 13 was released on Tuesday, and a new feature in the beta allows FaceTime users to appear as if they’re making eye contact during a call, even as they’re looking at the image of the other person on the call.
The new feature was demonstrated by Twitter user Will Sigmon (@Wsig), as seen below.
Guys – "FaceTime Attention Correction" in iOS 13 beta 3 is wild.

Take note however, that the feature currently only appears to work on iPhone XS and XS Max devices in the new developer beta. The feature looks to reply on some type of on-the-fly image manipulation, so perhaps the feature requires the increased processor power offered by the latest iPhones.
Rundle supposed the new feature might appear in “years to come,” but he says he’s “pretty astounded” that it’s already making an appearance.
