Use Apple’s iPhone as a Webcam with the Continuity Camera Feature

Apple WWDC 2022: Apple is collaborating with Belkin to allow Apple’s iPhone as a webcam in MacOS Ventura with the continuity camera feature.

Apple WWDC 2022: Apple announces to roll an update that allows users to use Apple’s iPhone as a webcam in macOS. Its new Continuity Camera feature is an upcoming update to the macOS as a part of macOS Ventura. Apple anticipates MacBook customers mounting an iPhone on top of their macs and using the camera to improve video chats in FaceTime, WebEx, Microsoft Teams, and other similar applications.

It’s a clever innovation that utilizes Apple’s ecosystem and allows Mac users to make higher-quality video chats without purchasing a separate 4K webcam. Apple demonstrated an iPhone 13 Pro installed on a MacBook Pro 13″ laptop, using a mount designed by Belkin.

Apple says it is collaborating with Belkin on similar mounts that will be available later this year to make it convenient to position an iPhone over a MacBook screen. This will also not necessitate the purchase of new hardware, as existing phones will be made compatible via software upgrades. Later this year, this new continuity camera feature will be accessible.
