Almost all iPhones and iPads have indeed FaceTime installed. Unfortunately, the feature is disabled by the network carrier in some regions, locations, or countries, making it difficult to use, especially in the Arab countries.
If you find your iPhone smarphone does not have a FaceTime icon, it will take a simple trick to install it.
To get started, go to “Settings.”
Locate and click on “General.”
Locate and click “iPhone Storage.” This location shows a list of all the apps installed on your iPhone and the size of the space they occupy. Scroll down, and you will find FaceTime indicating it is one of the default apps on your iPhone.
Now you can see the FaceTime app is a default on your iPhone but disabled. To activate the app to work on your iPhone, go back to “General.”
Select “Language & Region.”
Locate and select “Region.”
Locate a nearby region to where you currently are and select. For example, if you are in UAE, you can select Egypt or Omar.
Once you’ve selected the new region, click “Continue.”
Your iPhone will reboot the “Setting Region” you chose.

Hopefully, you will see FaceTime appear on your list of apps after the reboot. If it did not appear, go back and select another region closer to your location until you get the app working.
How to Activate FaceTime:
With your iPhone 12 activated to your mobile number, it is expected that FaceTime should be running automatically. However, if, for any reason, the app is not activated in your iPhone, kindly follow the steps below to get it working.
To begin, launch “Settings” from the home screen.
Scroll down to find “FaceTime” and click on it.
Once opened, tab the switch next to FaceTime to enable it, as shown below.
Touch “Use your Apple ID for FaceTime.”
If you already set up your Apple ID, you will be logged in automatically with a click on the “Sign in” pop-up. Otherwise, you will be required to enter your ID and password.
Once the FaceTime app has been activated successfully, you will be able to make, receive both video and chat communication via your iPhone 12 Pro to and from others.
Just go back to the home screen or where ever you prefer it located, tap, and start using the app.
