If you're experiencing the other person's voice shifting annoyingly from side to side during a FaceTime Audio call using AirPods, the culprit may be head-tracked spatial audio. While spatial audio aims to immerse you in sounds from all directions, its dynamic head-tracking feature adjusts audio for each ear, mimicking how sound changes with head movement. While this is beneficial for music or movies, it can be unsettling during a FaceTime call. To resolve this on an iPhone or iPad, access Control Center, hold the volume control, and select either Off or Fixed instead of Head Tracked. Note that spatial audio isn't available for FaceTime calls on Mac.
