This actually does come as a surprise since iPhone 5 was largely reported, even by Apple, to have the same 8-megapixel camera on its rear as the 4S sports. There were some improvements noted, like a dynamic f-stop feature for better low-light performance and a sapphire lens cover added for increased durability, but that was where Apple's improvement list ended. Test results are in, and they are quite impressive for the one area of iPhone 5 that was not boasted about to be a major change.
Over on the gaming end, role playing game designer Hironobu Sakaguchi, creator of titles such as the Final Fantasy series, Chrono Trigger, Super Mario RPG and Xenogears, has announced that he is working on an unknown "large scale project". The project, which was mentioned in a new year's blog post, is being developed by his new company, Mistwalker, and is said to be centered around the iPhone.
