FaceTime calls go to 1080p with latest IOS 14.2 update

  • IOS 14.2 upgrade enables FaceTime calls to be made in 1080p.

The good news for FaceTime users, the newest iOS upgrade enhances the quality of video calls. A novelty that went somewhat unnoticed since iOS 14.2 was released in early November. Apple simply didn’t record this new attribute in the upgrade release notes.

Today, as MacMagazine spotted, using iOS 14.2, second-generation iPhone X, 8, Xr, Xs, 11, 11 Pro, and SE enjoy 1080p quality through FaceTime calls if their network link enables it, course. Newer headed smartphones already supported this resolution, so this news isn’t about them.

The latest generation iPhone owners have the particularity of having the ability to connect to the 5G system to initiate video calls in HD at 1080p, unlike many others that can simply enjoy them through a good quality wifi connection.

But, within this health crisis, improving the resolution of video calls through FaceTime HD is timely. Newer or older iPhone owners are going to be able to keep in touch with their nearest and dearest in better conditions. Obviously, everything will depend on the characteristic of their wifi connection.
