If you would like to share what you are looking at on your iPhone or iPad screen with a friend, it’s as easy as making a FaceTime call now thanks to the built-in Share Screen feature. Let’s explore this feature.
This is for the iPhone and iPad. Screenshots are from iPhone XR
Need to Know
To share your screen with FaceTime, both you and the person you will be sharing with need iOS 15.1 or iPadOS 15.1 or later. You also need an Apple ID to use FaceTime.
Be aware that you can not share content from apps that require a subscription or a purchase to view.
Sharing your screen in FaceTime is great for when you need help troubleshooting or would like to present information to other people remotely. While sharing your screen, notifications will be hidden. But be careful about screen sharing if you have sensitive information on your screen because the party on the other end might see it.
Share Your Screen on iPhone and iPad
To share your screen on iPhone or iPad, first, run the FaceTime app and make a call to someone else who also has FaceTime set up. Once you’re connected, tap the Screen Sharing button in the toolbar that looks like a rectangle with a person in front of it. In the pop-up that appears, tap Share My Screen. Refer to the below image:
Next, when the screen-sharing starts, FaceTime shrinks to a small window on your screen, and you can use your iPhone or iPad as usual to launch apps. The person on the other side of the call will see what you are doing on your screen (but they will not see the inset video window). See the below image:
Now, to stop screen sharing, bring up the FaceTime toolbar again by tapping the video thumbnail and selecting the Screen Sharing button again. See the following image:
Next, when you are done with the FaceTime call, tap End. Refer to the below image:
