iPhone as webcam replacement: Apple presents continuity camera feature
Apple wants to allow users of the macOS operating system to use their iPhone as a webcam on their MacBook. The continuity camera feature, which was presented at the WWDC 22 in-house exhibition, is to be rolled out with the macOS update Ventura and improve the experience of video calls. With the WWDC 22 event, Apple introduced some innovations, including the continuity camera feature. That should enable macOS users to use their iPhone as a webcam. At least that’s how Apple imagines it, because the feature should only appear in the fall when the Ventura update for macOS is due. iPhone users should be able to attach their device to the top of the MacBook and instead use the rear camera as a webcam for macOS apps. Video calls via Facetime, for example, should be improved in this way. The continuity camera feature also includes support for center stage and portrait mode. So some video modes are to be provided for a variety of phone calls. So that the iPhone also has the necessary grip on the MacBook Air or MacBook Pro, Apple announced a collaboration with Belkin International, a manufacturer of hardware accessories. The company aims to develop brackets specifically for this purpose, which can be used to attach the iPhone to the MacBook. New hardware for the continuity camera feature should not be necessary, as existing devices are supported and made compatible via software updates.
