Continuity Camera

At last week's WWDC Apple introduced the Continuity Camera as a feature of macOS Ventura. When it comes out, you can use your iPhone as a wireless webcam. Apple software engineer Karen Xing spent some time explaining how the new Continuity Camera feature for macOS Ventura will actually work.

Some highlights from the video

  • macOS will detect your iPhone as a camera and microphone, period, so every camera app should work. 

  • It works also wired. USB cables are fine if you’re worried about interference or your iPhone staying charged.

  • You can turn your iPhone to any orientation

  • Apps can let your Mac capture photos and video from your iPhone

  • Unfortunately, none of this works with those old iPhones you’ve got sitting in a drawer. Continuity Camera requires iOS 16 in addition to macOS 13, Xing revealed — and unfortunately, the iPhone 6S, 7, and first-gen iPhone SE and earlier won’t be getting the iOS 16 software update. 

Alternative applications you can use now, are

  • Camo Access the incredible cameras on your phone with Camo and get powerful effects and adjustments for Zoom, Meet, and more. For Mac and PC.

  • Detail lets you connect your iPhone, iPad, or any other external camera to your Mac. And it works with your built-in webcam too. You can use Detail with any video platform like Zoom, Meet, Twitch, and Youtube Live.

Want to use your iPhone for pre-recording?

  • Connect your phone to your Mac with a USB cable

  • Open Quicktime

  • Select New Movie Recording.

  • Toggle the button next to record and select iPhone. Now you are ready to record in high quality.

  • Click record 🤙

Call for local reporters

If you are planning to attend a design-driven event this fall and want to share your experience with our community and the world, please let me know. Although I want to, for me, it is physically impossible to attend every event in person. With your help, I can build out the article section on the site. If you have written before great, if not no problem, I have a guide for you. If this sounds interesting to you, please send me an email [email protected] Subject: local reporter, and add which event you are planning to attend.

👋 See you next week

Are you or do you have a friend/colleague who organizes a workshop, field trip, meet-up, festival, or conference and think it's a good fit for Neon Moiré? You are invited to add the upcoming event to neonmoire.com.

Send your tips to [email protected]


If this issue of Neon Monday inspired you, share it with a friend, and you want to help me make more like it, you can buy me a coffee or promote your upcoming event or product in this newsletter or on our homepage. Thanks for your support! 🙏
