iOS 13.5 – Disable Automatic Face Zooming in FaceTime
iOS 13.5 was released on May 20, 2020 and includes a new feature that disables automatic face zooming in FaceTime. This can be useful if you don’t want your face to be automatically zoomed in when you’re on a call.
How to disable automatic face zooming in FaceTime
iOS 13.5 offers a new feature that automatically zooms in on the face of the person speaking during a FaceTime call. This can be handy in some situations, but it can also be annoying if you don’t want your face to be the center of attention. Luckily, there’s a way to disable this feature if you’d prefer.
To disable automatic face zooming in FaceTime, open the Settings app and navigate to FaceTime. Then, toggle off the switch for “Auto Zoom.” This will ensure that your face remains at the same size onscreen regardless of who is speaking.
If you find that you sometimes want the face zooming feature and sometimes don’t, you can still use it on a case-by-case basis. When you’re in a FaceTime call, simply tap the screen to bring up the controls. Then, you can tap the button that looks like two arrows pointing away from each other to zoom in on the other person’s face. Tapping the button again will return your view to normal.
The benefits of disabling automatic face zooming
There are a few benefits to disabling automatic face zooming in FaceTime. One is that it can help to conserve battery life on your device, since the FaceTime camera will no longer be actively searching for faces in the frame. Another benefit is that it can help to reduce motion sickness or discomfort for some users, since the camera will no longer be constantly zooming in and out. Finally, it can also help to improve the video quality of your FaceTime calls, since the camera will no longer be trying to zoom in on faces that are far away.
