Install iPadOS 13.7 for Better Group FaceTime
In addition to these COVID-19 related features, iPadOS 13.5 brought a very useful change to Group FaceTime.
With iPadOS 13.7, iPadOS 13.6.1, iPadOS 13.6, iPadOS 13.5.1, or iPadOS 13.5 on board, you can now disable the feature that automatically enlarges the tile of the person speaking on the call.
If you've used GroupFace Time before you might know that while each person has a tile, the software makes the tile of the person speaking much larger while the other tiles fade into the background.
If you're running iPadOS 13.7, iPadOS 13.6.1, iPadOS 13.6, iPadOS 13.5.1, or iPadOS 13.5, you'll notice a new "Automatic Prominence" section with a "Speaking" toggle inside the Settings application.
If you turn off the "Speaking" toggle, all of the tiles on screen will remain the same size.
If you skipped iPadOS 13.6.1, iPadOS 13.6, iPadOS 13.5.1, and iPadOS 13.5, and this sounds useful, download iPadOS 13.7.
