iOS 7 to allow FaceTime audio calls


Ask and you shall receive.

This is what I thought when I found out that iOS 7 will have a new feature which will let you perform audio calls via FaceTime. It was only two weeks ago that I publicly asked for this new feature and it’s is now a reality. Did Apple hear me? Probably not, but it’s good to know this is coming to an iOS device near you soon.

Dubbed as FaceTime audio, it’s not hard to imagine this feature being a direct competitor to Skype…

I’m actually surprised they haven’t come up with this feature before. Clearly, if Apple was able to connect two people with video+audio, audio only should have been a no brainer.

Now I’ll finally be able to FaceTime my Mom without having her see me and tell me it’s time I cut my hair.
