A backside-illuminated 5 megapixel sensor is about to grace the new iPhone‘s rear, equipped with an LED flash and 720p / 30fps video recording. Tap to focus will also be rolled out in the iPhone Quattro, and Steve Jobs is keen to impress on us all that although the megapixel count has grown, the quality of images has apparently improved. That’s what they all say. The added functionality of iMovie won’t come for free, however, with Apple asking a $4.99 tithe for granting access to its more sophisticated video editing options. This is moving things along, to be sure, but why is the upper limit of storage still 32GB? A more generous apportionment of memory would’ve gone very nicely indeed with that HD video mode.
