How to use the Continuity Camera in macOS Ventura

At WWDC in June 2022, one of the most exciting features that Apple unveiled was Continuity Camera for macOS Ventura. This allows you to simply put your iPhone on your Mac and use it instantly as a webcam. In true Apple style, there’s no simple setup – it just works, and we’ll show you how you can use it in this guide.

Continuity Camera doesn’t just give you a new webcam and leave it at that. Uses a group of smart iOS Features, including Center Stage, Stage Light, Portrait Mode, and a stylish Desk View that shows your desk next to your face on calls. Give it a try and it will soon become your favorite video calling tool.

Tools and requirements

  • iOS 16.1
  • macOS 13 Ventura
  • You’ll need to make sure your Mac and iPhone are connected to the same Wi-Fi network, signed in with the same Apple ID (with two-factor authentication enabled), and both work with Bluetooth

You can place your iPhone on a stand on top of your MacBook display, mount it to an external display, or place it anywhere else you want. As long as it’s close enough to your Mac, it shouldn’t matter.
