By now, we’re all probably aware that FaceTime for iOS does not work in the Middle East. After several days of speculation, this was confirmed by the release of an Apple support document, which highlighted the countries where FaceTime does not work.
As you can see in the screenshot below, FaceTime for Mac does not allow users to select Saudi Arabia (among others) as their location. Obviously, FaceTime isn’t meant to work in those countries, but there is a pretty simple way around it, as 9to5Mac reports. Simply select another country, such as the United States, and FaceTime for Mac will work for you. Great, right?
So, if you’re over in the Middle East and wish you could get in on the FaceTime experience, give this a try and let us know how it works for you! And, if you’re bored, you could always give facelette a spin.
