iPhone OS 4 provides developers with full access to video capture data.
The iPhone 4 Beta SDK also indicates that a future iPhone will be able to capture video at higher resolutions than the current standard 640×480 (“VGA”) resolution. The following preset values suggest that a future iPhone will be able to capture at 720p (1280×720) resolution:
The next iPhone has been pegged to use a 5 Megapixel camera, though the video capabilities of the hardware are unknown. The next iPhone revision has been also rumored to be dubbed the “iPhone HD” which would fit well with this new 720p video recording capability.
Apple is expected to introduce the new iPhone at the Worldwide Developer’s Conference which takes place between June 7-11th in San Francisco, CA.
