Developers unearth more features in iPhone OS 4.0
In addition to renewed evidence that Apple may add a front-facing camera and other camera-related features, developers with access to the beta have told Ars about even more tidbits buried within, essentially making OS 4.0 a piñata of API goodies for devs to beat on.
Thursday's announcement immediately turned up evidence that Apple might be adding a flash to the iPhone's camera, thanks to functions named VCaptureDevice.hasFlash, AVCaptureDevice.flashMode, and AVCaptureDevice.hasTorch. Apple is allegedly investigating LED flash options, which would make such a feature very BlackBerry-like. Additionally, the latest iPhone SDK continues to contain hints about a front-facing camera as well as iChat support.
That's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the hidden gems in OS 4.0.
