SharePlay is a new way to share synchronized FaceTime experiences with content material from Apple TV, Apple Music, Fitness+, and other App Store apps that are compatible with it.

Everyone can pause, play, rewind, or fast forward using shared controls.

In addition, when your friends speak, the smart volume automatically lowers the audio of a movie, TV show, or song.

Camera

The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max video capture in ProRes. On the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, you can disable automatic camera switching when taking macro images and movies.

Home

New automation triggers based on a HomeKit-enabled humidity, air quality, or light level sensor's current reading.
