On an iPhone XS or later running iOS 14 or later, FaceTime Digitally alters your video feed so your eyes are always looking at the camera, even when they’re not. If you find the idea of digitally altered eyeballs disturbing, this feature is easy to turn off. Here’s how.
First, open “Settings” on your iPhone.
In “Settings”, tap “FaceTime”.
In the “FaceTime” settings, toggle the switch next to “Eye Contact” to turn it off. This disables the false “natural eye contact” feature.
You can now exit the “Settings” application. The next time you use FaceTime, your students will be exactly where you expect them to be. Reality wins – for now. Have fun in your call!
