iOS 5 Includes Expanded Photography Options
The latest developer beta of Apple’s new iOS 5 mobile operating system includes a host of new and upgraded photo options, making the upcoming iPhone 5 even more of a must-have for shutterbugs all over the world.
“Now in iOS 5, Apple is adding more tools to amp up developers’ abilities to exploit the iPhone’s camera and create great apps in the process,” writes Phil Hornshaw at Appolicious. “We heard at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in March that the company was adding Core Image to iOS 5, and now more and more of that software’s effects are being seen throughout the beta versions of the operating system.”
iOS 5 is slated to debut alongside the iPhone 5 in September or October, and is expected to incorporate expanded voice control and a more efficient notification system, among other things.
“More specifically,” Hornshaw continues, “Apple has added a whole bunch more photo filters to iOS 5 in the latest beta release, which developers can leverage straight out of the box. This means that the iPhone itself will have the capabilities to manipulate every image created using its hardware in different ways, and developers will be able to access those capabilities without having to create photo filters themselves for their apps.”
