# How to create a conference

With TrueConf for iOS/iPadOS, you have three conferencing modes available: all on screen conference (symmetric), video lecture (asymmetric) and role-based conference.

Tap the /client-ios/media/gui/info_conf/en.png button to learn more about the maximum number of participants in a conference for each mode.

# How to join conferences automatically

When you join a meeting by calling its owner, the owner receives a corresponding request by default. You can change these settings by enabling the Accept new participants automatically option in the Options → General section. In this case, a user who wants to participate in the meeting will automatically connect to the meeting when calling its owner.

This feature is intended for group conferences only.

# All on screen (symmetric) conference

Press the Conference button in the bottom menu.

Choose All on screen conference mode and tap the Create button. The meeting has started.
