iOS 13s FaceTime will apparently fake eye contact

first_img • Apple’s FaceTime video chats might feel more real soon. Angela Lang/CNET Apple’s third iOS 13 developer beta adds a FaceTime feature that’ll fake eye contact during video calls, according to app designer Mike Rundle. Toggling the FaceTime Attention Correction setting makes it look like you’re looking directly into the camera, even though you’re really looking at the screen and the person you’re talking to.Rundle apparently tested the feature with podcaster Will Sigmon, who noted that it’s only working on the iPhone XS, XS Max and “maybe” the cheaper XR. The 2017 iPhone X apparently doesn’t support the feature. You’ve probably been unnerved by the fact that the person you’re talking to during FaceTime video calls always seems to be looking down slightly, since they’re looking at the image of you on screen rather than at their camera. We don’t know what trickery Apple is using for the Attention Correction feature, but it sounds pretty impressive.The company didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.If you’re looking for iOS 13 features to try right now, Apple added some nice Wi-Fi and Bluetooth shortcuts too.First published at 4:15 a.m. PT.Updated at 4:48 a.m. PT: Adds more detail.

Thailand retrieves last dead body in boating disaster

first_imgThailand`s prime minister Prayuth Chan-ocha comforts a relative of Chinese tourists involved in a sunken tourist boat accident at a hospital in Phuket, Thailand on 9 July 2018. Photo: ReutersThailand has recovered the last body after a boating accident killed dozens of Chinese tourists this month off the southern resort island of Phuket.The Phoenix was carrying 105 people — mostly Chinese — when it sank on the way back from a popular snorkeling spot on July 5.Divers and the navy spent more than a week retrieving bodies, some from inside the boat, as outraged relatives waited for news.Phuket’s public relations department said in a statement late Sunday that the “last body of the dead from the Phoenix boat accident” was recovered that night.”All missing found,” the statement added, putting the final death toll at 47.A minute’s silence was held for the victims at a ceremony attended by the Chinese ambassador.The Phoenix was among three vessels which ignored a bad weather warning against day trips to the islands around Phuket.The disaster was one of the worst boating accidents in recent history in Thailand, which has a poor safety record despite being heavily reliant on tourism.But it received little international attention compared to the dramatic rescue of 12 children and their football coach from a cave in northern Thailand.The country last year received 35 million tourists of whom nearly 10 million were from China, government statistics show.last_img
