iOS 15.1 and iPadOS 15.1, which launched Monday, bring a new screen sharing feature to FaceTime — something that has become a hallmark of communication apps in the pandemic era.
To make sure everyone you’re talking to sees what you see, start or join a FaceTime call, and:
- Tap on the screen in your FaceTime call to reveal the controls.
- Tap on the new Share Screen button.
- Tap on Share My Screen to confirm.
- Once the short countdown ends, FaceTime will start sharing your screen. You can now navigate to the app you want to share with the other participant(s).
“Your entire screen is visible during screen sharing,” warns Apple. Notifications are temporarily muted by default when you start sharing your screen.
When you’re ready to stop sharing your screen, switch back to your FaceTime call, tap on the screen to bring up the controls, and tap on the Share Screen button once again.
