Video Recording, Auto-Focus Camera, Digital Compass, and Voice Control In Next iPhone?
Our friends over at MacRumors have received some very convincing evidence that video recording will be a feature in the next iPhone. A screenshot of the latest iPhone beta shows what appears to be the interface for recording video on an iPhone. It’s similar to the current Camera app with the addition of a toggle for video recording. The screen is only visible when a certain configuration file is altered to say that a video camera is present.
In addition to this screenshot, evidence for other features have also been found in configuration files. Thus far, mentions of a “magnetometer” (digital compass), “auto-focus camera,” and “Voice Control,” have been discovered.
All of these items have been found in pre-release versions of the iPhone 3.0 software which is slated to be released this summer. It is likely that Apple will also release an updated iPhone around this time.
