How to Pause FaceTime on iPhone, iPad

Why Can’t I Pause FaceTime in iOS 14?

Let me remind you, Apple added Picture-in-Picture mode to iPhone and iPad, with the iOS 14 update. In other words, when you’re playing a YouTube Video or FaceTime-ing, and an urgent text pops-up, what will you do? I presume, exiting the YouTube Video or FaceTime would be your choice, at the same time, you don’t want to close? That’s where PiP comes in the picture, with PiP mode; the iPhone lets you use the iPhone while continuing the streaming video.

The turning point is when the Picture-in-Picture mode is enabled, and you decide to switch between the app, the FaceTime won’t be paused, instead, it will appear in a small window we call them as a PiP mode.

I’ve seen many people want to keep the FaceTime Video Paused while using another app, despite picture-in-picture mode. In short, if you can’t Pause FaceTime on the iPhone, iPad, disable the Picture-in-Picture mode on iPhone and iPad.

How to Disable Picture-in-Picture Mode in iPhone iOS 14?

Once you disable the Picture-in-Picture Mode, from the next time the ongoing FaceTime will be automatically paused when you switch the app. Keep note that, you won’t be able to use PiP mode with other PiP compatible applications.
