Using your iPhone as a Mac webcam will soon be possible
Apple plans to allow macOS users to use the iPhone camera as a Mac webcam. According to what The Verge writes that the new Continuity Camera feature has been introduced in the macOS Ventura operating system and enables much higher quality video calls.
The Continuity Camera feature turns the iPhone’s rear camera feed into a webcam that can be used in macOS applications. Continuity Camera is equipped with the Center Stage feature and uses Studio Light to illuminate the user’s face and dim the background. Continuity Camera also supports portrait mode.

- Apple introduced macOS Ventura with minor changes and more focus on gaming
Apple says it is working with Belkin to make special mounts for attaching an iPhone to the top of a Mac display. These foundations will be launched this year.
You don’t necessarily need new MacBooks to access the Continuity Camera feature, as older devices only get this feature by updating to macOS Ventura. Apple says that Continuity Camera can automatically detect an iPhone nearby and use its camera.
