FaceTime technology allows iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Mac users to make free audio and video calls, while paying only for the Internet traffic they consume. Like the iMessage instant messaging service, FaceTime is disabled by default in the iOS operating system, below you will find detailed instructions on how to activate and use it.

So, for the first time Apple presented FaceTime for iOS at WWDC in June 2010 along with the iPhone 4, and in October the company announced support for Mac OS X Snow Leopard. Thus, users of Apple devices were able to communicate face-to-face for free, as well as broadcast video from an iSight camera for the interlocutor and make voice calls using a regular Wi-Fi or DSL connection, and in 2012 support for 3G / LTE standards also appeared. Since then, thousands of Apple device owners from all over the world (not counting a number of Arab countries) use FaceTime every day.

In terms of making audio or video calls, FaceTime is analogous to Skype, Viber and other instant messengers.

The main benefits of FaceTime include:

  • no need to install additional applications. FaceTime is available immediately in iOS.
  • full integration with the Contacts application.
  • high quality communication.

The main drawback of FaceTime is the lack of cross-platform. the service is available only to users of Apple devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Mac).

How to make FaceTime calls on iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

You can make a FaceTime call directly from your subscriber card in the Phone app on your iPhone. By clicking on the desired contact, it remains to select an audio (handset icon) or video call (video camera icon).

If there are no FaceTime icons in the selected subscriber card, this means that the user you are going to call has not activated (activation instructions above) the service on his device.

We talked in more detail about using FaceTime (about the difference between FaceTime audio and FaceTime video, etc.) in this article.

You can also make calls via FaceTime using the app of the same name in iOS.

In addition, FaceTime Continuity technology enables regular cellular calls from non-cellular devices, such as Macs or iPads (Wi-Fi Only). How to do this is described in this material.


The firmware has also undergone changes. After all, the “home” button is gone, and the screen has changed dramatically. It has become larger, therefore, there is more space for content too.

The internal interface of the iPhone has changed, but it is done in such a way that some changes are not noticeable at all. And you can immediately get used to most of them due to their convenience.

The only inconvenience is the language switching button. Located under the keyboard at the bottom and you can overlook it at once.

Although it is not very convenient to press, but after a week you can get used to it. But the keyboard “Tens” has become more beautiful and more convenient.

According to the tests carried out, the tenth iPhone became the leader in terms of data processing speed and performance:

Geekbench 4. testing in the single-core segment.

The ability to shoot high-quality media content on the front-end fully justifies Apple’s decision regarding the notch at the top of the screen. Compare the front camera of IOS with Android. everything will become clear.

In an upright position, this notch is difficult to see. However, if you turn the device horizontally to watch video, it will be more noticeable.

Another cool thing about the iPhone X is HDR playback. The smartphone can recognize video encoded in Dolby Vision and HDR10.


The six-core processor of the A11 Bionic version is 25% more powerful than the previous versions. It is capable of processing billions of operations per second! iPhone 10 does not always use not all 6 cores, but only 4, for everyday tasks. The other two are connected when the smartphone is under heavy load. This technology allows you to handle most operations with negligible energy consumption.

The iPhone X chip makes the application and games look realistic. A new level of smoothness and color depth allows you to fully enjoy it.

Screen of the tenth iPhone

  • OLED screen on iPhone;
  • clear and bright colors;
  • a high resolution;
  • unusual design;
  • True Tone and Face ID features.

The OLED display wasn’t invented by Apple. Much earlier this type of screen appeared at Samsung, even on the “wooden smartphones” Galaxy. The Apple company just more skillfully implemented this idea on their phones. Prior to that, all iPhones had LCD displays.

The new 5.8-inch OLED display in the iPhone 10 outperforms previous LCD screens in many ways: sharpness, quality, and environmental adaptability. The new display also conserves battery. This is due to the low power consumption of OLED screens.

The adaptation of the screen to the external environment (under different lighting conditions) is possible thanks to the True Tone function. This function allows the user’s eyes to rest, as if he is looking not at the screen, but at a regular book.

Super Retina is an HD screen that uses Smart Color Management. The media is transmitted to the user in P3 and sRGB in such a way that real pictures, photos, websites or videos will be visible on the screen. You get full realism in color reproduction.

The new screen is longer than the 5.5-inch screen of the iPhone eight plus. It is not striking. After all, it is not the size of the phone that has increased, but the size of the screen.

The screen of the tenth iPhone is not the coolest in the world, but it is the most stable in operation. It is a great display for browsing website content, photos and videos.
It was also named the best in the world based on DisplayMate testing, which proved the iPhone X screen to be the brightest and most colorful OLED on the market.

The Face ID scanner has replaced Touch ID. Using this function in the tenth iPhone, you can unlock, verify your identity in Apple services.

Face ID consists of an infrared camera, emitter and point projector. Thanks to these elements, Face ID works extremely accurately and without errors.

Protection against accidental and fraudulent unlocks has been implemented. Masks and photos are not recognized by iPhone. The owner must look directly at the camera. Only then will the lock be lifted.
What’s cool is that if the owner’s appearance changes, the iPhone will recognize him. Thanks to machine learning technology. If you get older, fatter, or vice versa, the device recognizes you.

One drawback. you still have to touch the iPhone with your hand and slide your finger up from the bottom of the screen.
Face ID makes it incredibly easy to buy and download apps from Apple services. Previously, you had to enter a password or poke your finger to make a purchase and start downloading a file. Now you don’t need to do anything. The face scanner takes care of this.
