How does the feature of turning iPhone into a webcam work?

Continuity Camera allows Mac users to turn their iPhone into a high-quality webcam, instead of using the device’s default camera.

This is a new feature on the operating system macOS Venturaintroduced by Apple at the WWDC 2022 event on June 6.

iPhones can connect to your Mac in one of three ways: cable, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth. With a wireless connection, your macOS device will automatically detect nearby iPhones on subsequent visits.

Once connected, Continuity Camera gets its feed from the iPhone’s rear camera, resulting in a much higher quality image than the MacBook’s default webcam. The new feature supports two special modes including Center Stage when shooting horizontally and Portrait Mode when shooting vertically. The image will be displayed with the best brightness, skin tone, face…

Apple confirms Continuity Camera supports FaceTime and third-party applications such as Microsoft Teams, Webex, Zoom, Skype…

However, users need an iPhone running iOS 16 and a MacBook with macOS Ventura, which means older devices like iPhone 7 and earlier will not be able to use. In fact, users often only use old smartphones as webcams, rarely using new phones for this feature except in some necessary situations.

Apple also said that it is working with Belkin to create an accessory that attaches the iPhone to the MacBook screen. The product is expected to be available in the second half of the year.

However, the new feature is also controversial. Many people consider Continuity Camera to be something Apple should have implemented a long time ago to support those who often have to meet and study online. On the contrary, some argue that this just shows Apple has run out of ideas when a small feature also becomes one of the highlights at a big event like WWDC.
