iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 introduced a feature called “Mic Mode” that can be used during FaceTime calls. You can choose from different modes to make it sound better to whoever you’re talking to. We will show you how easy it is to use.
What is microphone mode on iPhone and iPad?
Microphone mode is a feature that allows you to adjust how your audio sounds. You can adjust modes whenever an app is using your microphone, including FaceTime calls. There are three modes to choose from:
- Standard: The default audio profile, unchanged.
- voice isolation: Uses machine learning to block out background noise.
- Spread spectrum: Increases ambient sounds around you.

How to use microphone modes in FaceTime
First, open the FaceTime app on your iPhone or iPad and start a “New FaceTime” or create a link.
While on the call (voice or video), swipe down from the top right corner of the screen to open Control Center.
Tap the “Microphone Mode” button.
Choose one of three audio modes.
That’s it! You can exit Control Center and return to the FaceTime call. The selection you made will carry over to the next time your microphone is used. This is a nifty little feature for FaceTime calls that can help you be more clear or include everything that’s going on around you.
