iOS 5 beta 3 introduced a number of new features that weren’t present in the previous two developer releases, including a selection of new sounds and a handy new ‘AssistiveTouch‘ menu. One thing you may not have stumbled across, however, is AirPlay mirroring for FaceTimes calls on the iPad — allowing you to see your caller bigger than ever before on your HDTV.
As first discovered by TiPb, the feature is described as “fantastic for families and business alike,” and allows a number of people in the same room to view the recipient of your FaceTime call.
Of course, you’ll still need to keep your iPad in front of you because you’ll need to continue to utilize its camera so that your recipient can see you, but this will be great for conference calls and long-distance family reunions.
