These messages can be recorded from the iPhone and iPad, and can also be played from the Apple Watch. Also, if we use filters such as Portrait Mode or Studio Light, these effects will also be included in the message we leave.

The presentations will be more professional

If we are in a FaceTime video call and we want to present content, now we will be able to do it in a much more organic way. And it is that, instead of having two separate elements, now we are going to have an overlay of our persona along with the content that we are transmitting

This function is called Presenter Overlay and It will only be available on Macs with Apple Silicon. However, it is a very good way to create virtual scenarios in which both we and our content are seen in the best possible way. In addition, we can select the size of the overlap, to adapt the presentation as best as possible depending on the moment.
