Using FaceTime on Apple TV with an iPhone: A Step-by-Step Guide

A new feature of tvOS 17 and iOS 17 allows FaceTime video calls to be made on Apple TV 4K. To set it up, users need an iPhone with iOS 17 and a second generation Apple TV 4K with tvOS 17. After updating the Apple TV, the FaceTime app will appear in the top row. Users on the same WiFi network will be listed, and the selected user’s device will show a prompt to access the camera and a tutorial for mounting the iPhone or iPad. It is recommended to use a dedicated MagSafe mount for the iPhone. Once the iPhone is connected, users can make FaceTime calls by selecting a person from the contact list or the recent call list. Multiple people can be selected before making the call. During a FaceTime call on Apple TV, there are controls for Center Stage, Portrait mode, and gesture reactions. Overall, using FaceTime on Apple TV with an iPhone is a simple feature that works with most modern Apple devices.
