If you find yourself needing to share your screen during a FaceTime call, it can easily be done. You can share your screen to bring apps, webpages, photos, and more into the conversation — all while seeing the reaction of the person you're talking to.


How to share your screen using an iPhone or iPad

  1. On an iPhone or iPad running iOS 15.4, iPadOS 15.4, or later, start a FaceTime call and tap the screen to bring up the control bar. Then tap the sharing icon. (It looks like a gray rectangle with a person in front of it.)
  2. Tap Share My Screen to share your whole screen. A three second countdown will appear and a small black box will appear on the other end of the call, which is where your content will appear.
  3. Swipe up to get to your home screen where you'll choose an image, app, document, or a webpage from your browser.
  4. An image of your screen will pop up in the FaceTime call. The others on the call can tap the image to enlarge it and view your content. They'll see exactly what you're doing on your phone. (If you tap the window of the person on the call, screen sharing will pause.)
  5. To stop sharing your screen, tap on the active call icon in the upper-left of your screen then tap the screen icon.
